It's still none of your business.

Please quote where I said anything about people not being allowed to disagree with me. That was never said, or even implied. Let's stick to the discussion and not attack posters.

Everybody is entitled to their opinion, it comes from their own experiences with the subject at hand, no one said they were trying to enact a law, the OP seems to have had a thought to discuss just like anyone else who starts a thread...
It's a public message board, I was just asking a question. Isn't that how discussions work?

they are as comfortable as sweat-pants but way more flattering to the figure.
and they have become socially acceptable to wear in public.

That doesn't answer the question that I brought up for discussion, since after all, that's what one does on a message board. Why does it matter what other people are wearing? How does a woman wearing yoga pants instead of jeans affect your life? And why are women the ones constantly singled out for wearing athletic clothes? I see just as many men, if not more, wearing basketball shorts, track pants, sweatpants, joggers, etc...
Since you questioned why I started this discussion thread, I was merely stating that this is a message board, that's what people do. So, because you've been here longer than me, that makes you more "knowledgeable" of what discussions should be started?

I clearly stated in my OP that I was asking if wearing active gear is a trend in other places. Everyone has shared their own experience, one person shared that she doesn't see it in her area. Also, I've answered your questions on posts throughout this thread.

That's how it always works my friend. Salt n Pepa were wearing g leggings back in the late 80s.

It became popular because Madison Ave sold the middle class suburban woman on GYMs. Gyms are big business. They spent millions in ads. If you are middle class professional white collar worker or upper class housewife you are expected to be "healthy". It's all a ploy to make you spend your money on stuff you don't need. Gym membership and active wear. The MadMen are smarter than you........ I'm a man. I will never object to tight female clothes. Period. (Sean Spicer)

I too see more and more women wearing yoga pants, and most of them look quite attractive in them. But why don't they like men to notice their form fitting clothing and look?

Interesting article. It is funny when traditional cultural stuff comes to America - it gains a brand or exclusive lifestyle so someone can make money, whereas at "home" it is just normal, common and everyday.
