Does anyone actually think that women wearing pants are bad?

I was watching Wife Swap, and one of the women had taught her daughters that you "aren't a lady if you wear pants".

The other wife (who was a rocker chick) asked, "So you don't think I'm a lady?"

And the little girls shook their head 'no'.

Now every time I see a woman or group of women out in public wearing skirts, I'm scared they'll think I'm a whore or something because I choose to wear pants.

  • The christian handbook says believers aren't supposed to wear them.

    Personally, I live in jeans. Anywhere I can't go in in jeans, I just don't go. But I'm definitely not much of a lady. :O)

  • Because men are hogs and perverts, women are made to suffer for it.

  • So what about those of us who have a wardrobe of pants and skirts? I think they're both great depending on the weather and what I'm doing.

    You can't go around thinking every last skirt-wearing woman only wears skirts her whole life. Nor is it healthy to be that concerned with how strangers view your wardrobe.

  • I actually have an anxiety disorder that makes me sorta paranoid of strangers :D I would be more confident in myself if I could be, of course.

    I think some of it is a religious thing. There's nothing wrong with wearing skirts because of religious convictions, or just because you prefer them.

    But this woman on Wife Swap flat out refused to wear pants. At all.
