Hello ladies and welcome to another example of men trying to tell us what to do with our bodies for the sake of their visual enjoyment.

I’m not sure what side of the bed Alan Sorrentino woke up on when he wrote a Letter to the Editor that was published in the EastBay RI newspaper attempting to school women on appropriate attire, but rest assured when all was said and done, he was the one being taught a thing or two. His letter read:

To the editor:

The absolute worst thing to ever happen in women (sic) fashion is the recent development of yoga pants as daily wear outside the yoga studio.

Not since the mini-skirt has there been something worn by so many women who should never have it on in the first place.

From casual to formal, weddings, funerals, shopping, and even for the workplace, yoga pants are everywhere on women of all ages, usually paired with a blousy top and a pony tail hairdo. What a disaster!

Like the mini-skirt, yoga pants can be adorable on children and young women who have the benefit of nature’s blessing of youth. However, on mature, adult women there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public. Maybe it’s the unforgiving perspective they provide, inappropriate for general consumption, TMI, or the spector of someone coping poorly with their weight or advancing age that makes yoga pants so weird in public.

A nice pair of tailored slacks, jeans, or anything else would be better than those stinky, tacky, ridiculous looking yoga pants. They do nothing to compliment a women over 20 years old. In fact, the look is bad. Do yourself a favor, grow up and stop wearing them in public.

Besides, why would you want to wear something that’s seen on dozens of other women every day, everywhere? I thought women didn’t like doing that for obvious reasons. Yoga pants belong in the yoga studio. What’s next? Wearing a “Speedo” to the supermarket? Imagine if men did that. Yuck!

To all yoga pant wearers, I struggle with my own physicality as I age. I don’t want to struggle with yours. Thanks.

So in other words you’re projecting?

Honestly, I’m not sure why the editor of this newspaper even decided to publish this letter, which is more tacky than any women over the age of 20 in a pair of yoga pants, unless it was for the sake of exposing what a sexist, ageist, simpleton Mr. Sorrentino is. Not only does he attempt to shame women (FYI, I hate that overused term but it’s completely accurate here), he also presumes to know more about what drives our clothing choices than we do, i.e. “why would you want to wear something that’s seen on dozens of other women every day, everywhere? I thought women didn’t like doing that.”

It’s sad the thought never crossed Mr. Sorrentino’s mind that perhaps dozens of women leave their houses in yoga pants every day because they like that sh-t. Further, did he ever think those yoga pants that he proclaims belong only in a yoga studio are on their way to or from said location when he comes into contact with women wearing them? And regardless if the pants are or aren’t being worn in a yoga studio, they’re being worn by women who have the right to wear them wherever they want because they want to. #SorryNotSorry that when he steps outside he expects every women in his line of sight to fulfill his optical desires.

Considering the rise of athlesiurewear, ‘ol boy better get with the times or he’s going to stay mad every time he leaves the house. Meanwhile women everywhere in their comfy yoga pants will continue to be #Unbothered or prance around at Peaceful Yoga Pants Parades as the ultimate clapback to this nonsense.
