Christian Blogger Causing Firestorm Over Vow to Stop Wearing Leggings
A Christian blogger is causing a firestorm after vowing to stop wearing leggings or yoga pants because of the lust she thinks they stir in men.
Veronica Partridge wrote on her blog January 5 that she won't "entice" men by wearing leggings or yoga pants out in public.
"If it is difficult for my husband who loves, honors, and respects me to keep his eyes focused ahead, then how much more difficult could it be for a man that may not have the same self-control?" Partridge wrote on her blog. "Sure, if a man wants to look, they are going to look, but why entice them?"
In a response, Alexandria Petri from the Washington Post shot back at Partridge stating that it's a man's responsibility to "cool their desires."
Harris Faulkner weighed in that she wears yoga pants because she actually does yoga and took issue with the blogger.
"I would really question the woman who wrote this blog though," Faulkner said. "Because is that what her husband is telling her? I would worry a little bit more because is he faithful? He's building her up to the point where she's telling women to change their wardrobe. It sounds like he's overcompensating for something."
