I really hope this is a pre-April Fool’s joke. Why doesn’t this Catholic mother, instead of decrying women who wear leggings, teach her sons to behave respectfully no matter what a women wears? This whole notion that women have to be careful at all times how they move, how they talk, what they wear, how much makeup they use… for fear of stirring the sexual prowess of men because they simply cannot help themselves. This mother of four boys, schools with ridiculous dress codes, and our society has it ass-backwards. Give more credit to men, for God’s sake, and stop this bullshit paradigm where men and boys can’t function unless women are draped under tents.
Maryann White, who identified herself as the Catholic mother of four sons, described the wildly popular stretchy pants as “a problem that only girls can solve” in a letter to the campus paper.
