    Unlikely assertions

    I just found the following on a web page.
    it has become commonplace to wear leggings instead of pants in almost every informal social situation.
    Even discounting the problems of translation from whatever language that's written in, I claim it is unlikely to be true.

    My personal testimony is that I have never owned a legging, much less worn a legging, not in the privacy of my own room behind locked doors, not in a retail outlet, not on public transport. Nowhere.

    Who are these dubious phantom barbarians? In which horde are they alleged to skulk?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    It's probably an american website written by someone with nothing better to worry about. leggings or tight jeans or trousers who cares. I do actually have leggings though- long jiohns for hillwalking in winter.

    My approach to style is to have no style at all.

    Longjohns under jeans is one thing, leggins as an outer garment is a whole different kettle of fish.

    Re: Unlikely assertions

    ...reading that in English rather than American my poor little mind is still wrestling with the idea of substituting leggings for underpants...

    It's an appropriate attire for women but I think I'd disown any male friend or family member if they wore them in public...along with crocs and sandals with socks

    Re: Unlikely assertions

    Snatching a sentence from the WWW without some context isn't worth worrying about.
    Was it historical?
    Was it a fetishist site ?
    What sort of social situation ?

    "UA Denies Boarding to Non-Rev Girl in Leggings, Social Media Revolts".





    Though given the generalized nature of the quote, I don't see how context adds any useful information.

    Re: Unlikely assertions

    Noting a previous post when you told us that you change spellings to suite who you are talking to.......should that not be "Generalised" ?

    I think you will find context is extremely relevant.

    Robert E Lee was Generalised. I was speaking of generalization.
