You may have already read Sonny Bunch’s spirited defense of a woman’s right to yoga pants, but there was one thing which should have caught your eye — and I don’t mean the long-haired blonde in the third photo down. Although I could hardly blame anyone, male or female, if she did catch your attention.
Instead I mean the real meat of Sonny’s post, which was text quoted from a Mother Jones article:
Montana Republican state Rep. David Moore has a plan to guide America out of the darkness—ban yoga pants. Moore, who is upset that group of naked bicyclists pedaled through Missoula last year, decided that what his state really needs right now is tighter regulations on trousers. His proposed bill, HB 365, would outlaw not just nudity, but also “any device, costume, or covering that gives the appearance of or simulates the genitals, pubic hair, anus region, or pubic hair region.”
If you’re a GOP lawmaker in this age of the War on Women and whatnot, and you think you need to sponsor legislation with the phrase “genitals, pubic hair, anus region, or pubic hair region” in it, and your bill doesn’t involve health care…
…then you need to kindly sit down and shut up and think for one damn minute exactly what kind of Akin-level bullshit harm you’re doing to your cause and to your party.
