Must be nice to work for a district that that thinks its ok to call kids who wear leggings ridiculous. Here is a woman/parent trying to defuse a potential conflict and then to have the district spokesman be so rude and hurtful to students.
If you are a spokesman it behooves you to be polite, especially to kids, doesn't it?

Salt Lake City, Utah

There is an image going around the Internet of a woman wearing leggings and a t-shirt. Due to the pale peach color if the leggings and the way in which leggings normally fit, the only way you can tell from the back that she is wearing pants at all is by the fact that her skin color is darker than the color of the leggings.

Now, I suppose you could find a more tactful way to say ridiculous, but that won't change the fact that leggings worn improperly look ridiculous.

Showing your thong straps or boxer tops also looks ridiculous.

Sigh. Must people look for offense where none was truly intended??

The school administrator didn't call the students ridiculous, he simply said it looks ridiculous to come to school dressed as Buddy the Elf with leggings for pants.

Leggings are not the problem, the wearer is.

Amen, AZgal. If we go around calling even the slightest statement "hurtful," it diminishes the use of the word.

Let's just cover the girls and boys in hogwarts robes.

It's crazy. Skin is covered. Avert the eyes. What is next, a burqa?
