The backlash of pithy Twitter comments were swift and snarky such as:
Okay @nytimes. 1) I am sure you had your pick of thoughtful opinion pieces for this Sunday’s edition...and this was your choice? 2) Women writing op-eds about other women’s sartorial choices is bad for women 3) You can have my yoga pants when you pry them from my cold dead booty.
This is an article criticizing women for wearing yoga pants to yoga class.
And not to be outdone:
I always thought smoking, not sleeping enough and patriarchy are bad for women. Turns out I was wrong. It's yoga pants.
I'm always amazed and amused at the sort of "Brouhahas" that inflame Westerners on social media...first thing in the morning. :)
I solved this problem for myself by...not wearing pants. :)
