Here’s your heroic yoga pants story of the week!
Students of Battlefield High school in Haymarket, VA protested Monday wearing yoga pants in solidarity! No they’re not all super teen yogis, but they ARE standing up against a recently enforced no “form-fitting” dress code, including yoga pants, which has brought out the stretchy bottoms brigade.
“I think it’s crazy that they’re just now trying to get on it,” said Devon Greene.
He is a senior at Battlefield and says during his four years at the school, there’s never been a dress code issue.
“These girls have been wearing yoga pants the whole year and all of a sudden they’re telling people they can’t wear yoga pants. It’s crazy,” said Greene.
So many students rebelled and even started a “Wear Yoga Pants to School” Facebook page to rally the troops and gather petition signatures.
But Battlefield Principal Amy Ethridge-Conti denies the yoga targeted crackdown, saying inappropriate clothing is handled on a case-by-case basis.
“We don’t prevent students from wearing yoga pants,” she said. “The code simply states that students can’t wear form-fitting pants,” she explained.
The fracas is still stirring amidst the student body and administrative staff, but the powers have softened and it seems that yoga pants may be safe and sacred again, for now.
Damned kids these days. Sex, drugs, rock and roll and yoga pants.
sorry if the video is funky, blame fox.
