Again I think terminology:


tights: very thin, one step up from nylons (sometimes textured). Meant to worn under something
Leggings: female attire. Meant to be worn under a tunic or something that covers the butt
Workout leggings: thicker, good ones can be worn with short tops
Yoga pants: fitted workout wear, normally with a wide waist band and not fitted past the knee

people arent working out at the mall or in line at the dmv.
its like a bikini: at the beach its normal; on the t its like wtf ?

Is it "something else" though? I mean, if it's silly to expect men to "avert their eyes" wouldn't that be a silly expectation everywhere? Are you saying men "avert their eyes" at the gym? But not at the grocery store?

Personally, I learned by age 12 that men are going to look, stare, and comment (etc...) no matter what I was wearing. Pregnant? Cat-calls. On the way into the doctors office with the flu? "Mm-mmm, damn..." Walking with my kids into the craft store? "Hey! Hey pretty lady!"

I learned quickly, of course, which men I wanted to avoid. And which ones are decent guys.

So to base wardrobe choices off men "averting their eyes" is utter nonsense. Maybe all men look, but the creepy ones are the ones who get caught looking. Probably the same ones who go into the "relationships" forum and complain about how they can't get dates with attractive women. Not my problem. I bet attractive nuns get hit on.

And, as this thread has illustrated, it's not just men who "look"
Clearly many, many women are actively checking out each other's butts and genitals

So why are we worried about men??

Again, the poster I was responding to was specifically complaining about women wearing "jogging bras" while out jogging. Most people are not jogging through the mall or the line at the DMV.

Why should I be worried about any person? Unless they want to buy me a new wardrobe, I'll stick to wearing what I want to wear. I'm concerned about what anyone, male OR female, thinks about my clothes.

Today was a rainy, lounge around the house day. When my SO other got home from work he asked if I wanted to go to the store with him. It was just a quick run to the store, so I didn't change. While at the store I asked if he liked my "flash dance" look ( capri yoga pants, a slightly baggy sweater and a sports bra). He jokingly told me my look was more trash panda, less flash dance. Maybe other people silently judged me for not getting all dressed up for the grocery store. Then again they were doing construction inside the store so I'm sure most people were more concerned about the loud jack hammering and less concerned about what my butt and genitals looked like in my yoga pants.

Well if you go hiking in your jock, why should you have to go home and change before you go to the grocery store in your jock, right? Maybe people shouldn't judge, and I'm sure they're jealous. Besides, it's noisy in there, no one notices a guy with burrs, tics, scratches and thorns all over, in a jock.

Your comment makes little sense.

Lycra is another name for elastane, just like Spandex. A very large percentage of fabrics now include elastane, including the denim for jeans. Most of my work blouses have it in them, even. A stat I found online is that "an estimated 80% of clothing sold in the United States contained spandex in 2010.[5]" (from Wikipedia)"
There's no difference? 100% lycra in lycra spandex which is the same as painted on, and 1 - 5% spandex in jeans with lycra included so they move with you better, are the same?
Who makes little sense?

This is the exact opposite of what we are discussing. Many women wear tights with NO clothing over them, and is this appropriate?. (again it's a question not a statement, at least from me)

Why does the word "conservative" throw SOME people into a hissy fit. To them conservative must mean right wing ultra religious, pious, judgemental, GOP, whatever. Conservative for me actually means conserve, or perhaps, restraint. It's just that way I am; thus for you to judge me because of the way I was raised actually means you are the "bad one".
