In recent years, a lot of people rallied to the New York Times, giving them a level of subscriptions not seen in recent years — largely to spite Donald Trump.
The problem, however, is that the New York Times has … issues, and that's not a newspaper joke. The sorts of content that they promote in their "Opinion" pieces can at times be absolutely horrifying.
Like "Why Yoga Pants Are Bad For Women," an opinion post that decries the wearing of leggings. Plenty of articles have tried to claim that leggings are "not pants" or shouldn't be worn out and about, but this goes a step further by claiming that they shouldn't even be worn while exercising.
Any sensible person knows that telling women how to dress — whether it's to not wear bikinis or to not wear a hijab — is kind of the opposite of women's liberation. The "right way" to dress is however you see fit.
This article, it seems, was not written by a sensible person.
Twitter took notice and got up in arms.
Women who take yoga or simply have legs objected to the notion that they should let someone else instruct them on what to wear.
