Weighing in on a hotly debated controversy.

Tights are not pants.

I saw a girl on the train the other day wearing a fleece jacket and a pair of tights. I couldn't help thinking, how is the girl walking around without any pants on.

If you purchase it in the lingerie department, it's not pants.

Edit: I just realized how funny this post would be for an English reader. So, in translation, tights are not trousers!

Edit #2: Awesome visual via

Ok, now picture someone riding the train in this, only the dress/tunic thing is a North Face Fleece.

yeah i think people have fogotten that fact, I fell into that trap the other day and wore a top that could double as a dress with tights but it turns out it was way too short so I had to run home and change for work. I had to realize that tights were not pants and I needed to wear something that fully covered me.

Amen to that. It's unsanitary, and no one needs to see anyone else's bum that closely in public.
