A Controversial Topic for the Real World
Merry Christmas and Holiday Greetings to everyone! I have nothing relevant to add to my Internet advice today. In my first contribution to off topic subjects I've decided on a controversial topic: sweatpants in public. One of my friends insisted that I would never write on such an offbeat topic. Here you have a light hearted post for Christmas.
As my friend Mike put it he "wouldn't be caught dead in public" with sweatpants. He says it's an unwritten rule that you aren't allowed to wear sweats in public. Personally, I don't see the big deal. Sweat pants seem to have an unfair prejudice against them. How many people wear sweat shirts in public or hoodies? It is the same family of fabric. Why the prejudice below the belt?
Below is an interesting supporting perspective provided at Iris.com.
- They're comfortable--it's a no-brainer.
- You don't have to change out of OR back into your pajamas in the morning and evening.
- You know you don't need to put on anything with buttons or a zipper to catch the eye of that hottie at the coffee shop. (Not sure if "hottie" refers to a man or a woman. Shrug.)
- No one ever split the seam of their sweatpants bending over.
Brian Moylan at WashingtonBlade.com posted the following: "The style of dress in this country has gotten excessively casual to the point that it's even acceptable to wear sweatpants in public in places other than the gym."
There you have the information; now you decide. Merry Christmas, Mike!
