Veronica Partridge, a Christian wife and mother, made a decision that she described as, “heavy on my heart” for months.
That thing weighing on her heart was those evil yoga pants she had been wearing, of course.
Partridge explains that she fears that the pants inspire ‘lustful’ feelings among men who are not her husband.
IKR? I’m totally wearing black yoga pants now and there are men lusting all up in that. OK, there isn’t anyone lusting but it felt good typing that out loud as if it’s really happening.
An online blog post by the Oregon woman has created a firestorm in public attention after her drawn-out declaration on why she will no longer wear “lustful” leggings, according to the Daily News.
Her blog post garnered 172 comments and 26,000 Facebook ‘likes’.
She spoke to her husband about his thoughts as a man on these evil pants.
“When I walk into a place and there are women wearing yoga pants everywhere, it’s hard to not look. I don’t, but it’s not easy,” he told her.
“If it is difficult for my husband who loves, honors, and respects me to keep his eyes focused ahead, then how much more difficult could it be for a man that may not have the same self-control?” she wrote.
After making the decision to ban wearing yoga pants, she wrote: “…My conscience is clear and I feel I am honoring God and my husband in the way I dress.”
Some of her thousands of readers weighed in, wondering whether it’s then ultimately right to wear makeup — as Partridge is seen doing in her photos — and how features deemed “sexy” or “lustful” aren’t always provocative or immodest.
“One of the (many) unfortunate aspects of modern day Christianity is that women are discouraged from celebrating their sexuality. Can I have an amazing ass and also be close to God? Yes, I can,” one commenter wrote.
My main question is this: If I’m wearing this evil pants now (I’m totally wearing them right in God’s face), then where are these awesome men, who according to the Oregon Godly blogger, should be lusting after me simply because of the pants? I’m waiting.
Maybe it’s because I haven’t left my home all day. You think? That does it. I’m going out. Or maybe it’s the oversized sweater I’m wearing over them.
I mean, it’s not as if I’ll be twerking in them at my age. Maybe Ms. Partridge was though.
An extreme fundamentalist Muslim woman once told me it would be better if I wore a scarf over my head because men might ‘rape’ me because they’d see my hair and it would be my fault.
How similar these two women are.
