Leggings are (in my humble opinion) a miraculous gift of stretchy goodness — one that I give great thanks for every time I'm running late and need to get dressed in approximately five seconds or less, or when I'm doing my best not to embarrass myself on the elliptical at the gym, or... you get the idea. They're comfy and they make my butt look good. Long live stretchy leg wear! The only downside, apparently, is that leggings have the potential to send you to hell. At least, that's what one Christian blogger who vowed to stop wearing leggings because of God seems to think.
Veronica Partridge is gaining attention for a recently published blog post stating her vow to refrain from wearing leggings and yoga pants out in public due to their sinful ability to encourage "lustful thoughts" in men. Because apparently a dude's wandering eye is my yoga pant-clad butt's responsibility. "Is it possible that the thin, form-fitting yoga pants or leggings could make a married (or single) man look at a woman in a way he should only look at his wife?" Veronica wondered while standing, conflicted, at the Lululemon sale rack (I assume).
And the conclusion that the wife and mom (pictured above in a Jesus-approved pair of jeans) came to, with the help of the Almighty and her husband, was a resounding YES. "[A]t that moment, I made a personal vow to myself and to my husband," Partridge wrote, "I will no longer wear thin, form-fitting yoga pants or leggings in public."
Sorry lady, but an eternity burning in hell isn't enough to pry those cozy, comfy leggings off my body and I dare you to tell me that it's my moral responsibility to control the male gaze. Now, how she would feel about these Black Milk catholic cathedral leggings, I wonder?
