What IS it with the yoga pants..?

Remember the nice Christian lady here in Oregon who promised her hubby (and informed us all in Outer Blogistan) that she was hangin' up the leggings and yoga pants because of the way that watching her bottom twitching around inside them made good Christian dudes all hot, sweaty, and hard to control?

Well...turns out that she's got a brother in Christ - one Dave "Doc" Moore - up in the Montana legislature who has an even better idea.

Make it illegal to show all dat ass (and that pubic mound, and thighs, and those taut, limber calves, and bare feet, too, I'm guessing...). Nudity, revealing clothing, anything that shows off you ladies' butts? Foul! Unclean! Illegal!

But this dope got himself in real trouble when he threw in yoga pants and Speedos; that just seemed a little too much like sharia law even for the Good People of the Treasure State (the bill he introduced has been officially tabled).

Course ol' Doc now says that the whole "yoga pants SHOULD be illegal.." thing was just a jest, a jape, a mere rhetorical that he's been shown up for some sort of moronic, bible-banging panty-sniffer all across the Intertoobz. But, really...what the fuck, guys?

Why even make the suggestion in the first place?

I mean...don't you like women? Don't you think they're nice to look at? Don't you appreciate the human body, including the female body, as "God's creation", like a sunset or a mountain or a rainbow? Why all this fuss about other people's bottoms?

And...if not, I guess my other question would be, what the fuck business is it of yours what he or she wears, or doesn't wear? Doesn't your Bible enjoin you to worry about the fucking beam in your OWN eye?

I guess I will just never understand Christians. They're like that wierd jello thing with little marshmallows that people used to serve in the Seventies; you just have to have been there to understand.

As it says in one of the good books: (Bukhari Book 74 #247)
"In the meantime, a beautiful woman from the tribe of Khath'am came, asking the verdict of Allah's Apostle. Al-Fadl started looking at her as her beauty attracted him. The Prophet looked back while Al-Fadl was looking at her; so the Prophet held out his hand backwards and caught the chin of Al-Fadl and turned his face to the other side in order that he should not gaze at her."

Note that the Prophet *didn't* tell her to go cover up. He made his companion to stop being rude by staring at her.

Just to be contrary, I would like to say that such people have always been around. We didn't always label or consider them especially Christian but saw them more as miserable, unhappy, punitive personalities. That is how I still view them. This guy's idea is only slightly crazier than the state politician (was it Kansas?) who wanted to outlaw hoodies. ? People are crazy and people like to have the punishing upper hand on other people. We are an imperfect species. :) Jill

The stupid and crazy is getting stronger in more and more loons. Honestly, why don't they just start putting out male EYES if it is THAT big a damned issue.

Yeah, I've been to Stonekettle this morning and am over fed up with religious asininity ruling on women. I tell you, those religious cats are a bunch of wusses, so afraid of being led by the Dumbstick that they keep pounding on women they are looking at...

People always seem to love to have something to go on about, something to rive them from their fellows.

The fellow who founded the yoga pant brand Lululemon has made a killing over women's backsides. The NYT recently did a piece on the brilliant exploiter HERE.

The human form can be lovely, but the recent tush push (Kardashian et, al) leaves me adrift. Her cantileverous backside leaves Josepne Baker's n the dirt. It seems not so much different from the monkey's Ischial Callosities.

The film "Idiocracy" kinda says it all, tho' I'm not quite sure what It all is.
