Last week in the War on Women: Yoga Pants
And, this is not a joke.
It seems there’s a Montana state Representative who wants to expand the definition of “indecent exposure” to include any “device, costume, or covering” that is too form-fitting. This includes yoga pants.
Actual quote: “Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway,” said the idiot. Sorry, said Rep. David Moore.
Rep. David Moore: Yoga Pants! But it is 1958! Harlots!
A friend of mine asked: Then, what are Moms supposed to wear?
Good question, indeed.
Under the proposed bill, a third-time offense could cost a violator $5,000 and five years in jail. For wearing yoga pants. Again, this is absolutely real.
Fortunately, the Montana House of Representatives scuttled this plan. Because it is sexist. But mostly, because it is just plain stupid.
Ladies, if I should ever run for the office of State Representative in Montana (or any other state), I assure you that I am most definitely Pro-Yoga Pants. I’m a huge fan.
[Note: As we went to press, Rep. Moore declared it was all just a joke! His pandering to a select constituency was met with more ridicule than it was worth.
So... Hahaha! He was only kidding. And, all those wasted taxpayer dollars. Plus, the government overreach stuff.... Ha.
