Interesting article on women wearing pants.

Terrible thing women in pants, ever try to snap an up pant leg picture. LoL
Seriously though I had to laugh at the women want to wear pants for gender equality, blah blah blah. No, because they are practical, comfortable, and safer. Now if they would put decent pockets in them...

Miss Cellania said...

The point about gender equality was that men wore clothing that was practical, comfortable, and safe. Why shouldn't women?

Similar to the Charlie Chaplin story Hugh Jackman dressed up as Wolverine and went to Comic-Con and nobody recognized him. "One guy goes, ‘Eh, not bad.' And another one said, 'Whoa. Way too tall buddy.'"
