Newest Feminist Crusade: Fighting for the Right of Middle-Schoolers to Wear Revealing Yoga Pants

To enact a school policy that includes guidelines on shape-hugging clothing is to support "rape culture," you see.

This is what feminism has come to: fighting for the right to wear yoga pants and leggings to middle school. This pressing civil rights issue made headlines when girls in Evanston, Ill., protested rules that they said banned the bum-hugging clothing for creating classroom distractions.

A feminist flash mob attacked Haven Middle School for shaming girls and promoting rape culture. Eliana Dockterman wrote in Time that the school's argument "is not that distant from the arguments made by those who accuse rape victims of asking to be assaulted by dressing a certain way."

Actually, it's a universe away.

Rape is a physical attack and a crime. Pubescent boys noticing girls' bottoms is neither. Still, two parents wrote to the school asserting, "We really hope that you will consider the impact of these policies and how they contribute to rape culture." A feminist writer tweeted, "#RapeCultureIsWhen we tell 13-year-old girls they can't wear leggings because it's 'distracting' to the boys."

Apparently the Gawker site Jezebel fumed that rather than banning yoga pants (by the way, they weren't banned at all, but see Powers' column for that) we should teach boys not to be "disgusting" sexist pigs.

Teach them, they mean, not find the female forming pleasing.

#ConversionTherapy, I guess. Educate the Straight away.
