LET'S BE CLEAR The wearing of tights as pants is an abomination. TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS. sure in the context of sports, ballet, hair metal, and renaissance fairs, tights function as suitable leg coverings, but still they are not pants. No. These are not activities that transform tights into pants; these are historically acceptable acts of PANTLESSNESS. Tights as pants leave nothing to the imagination. Tights as pants are an affront to those of us who PREFER NOT TO KNOW the most intimate details of their neighbors' bodies. Tights as pants are the fashion equivalent of Too Much Information This gratuitous divulgence of assets repels where the tights-as-pants wearer presumably hopes to entice. We have tired of tolerating attempts to force tights into this non-native garment category, and have decided to do something about it?
