Let’s Stop Hating On This Woman For Finding Leggings “Lustful”

The go-to legging “controversy” has always been the “pants or not” debate, but these days, the focus seems to have shifted to the question of whether they’re some kind of symbol of sexual deviance. The most recent weigh-in comes from a woman named Veronica Partridge, who shared a post on her personal blog earlier this month about her decision not to wear them anymore to prevent the “lustful thoughts” of random dudes. She told People, “It had been something that was on my mind for quite some time. I didn’t want to possibly cause another man, especially a married man, to look at me in a way I believe he should only look at his wife.”

Frisky Reads: After Birth By Elisa Albert

To get this out of the way from the get-go, Elisa Albert’s After Birth is going to offend a lot of sensitive people, some for the following reasons:

Feminists To Blame For Child-Molesting Priests, Says Demoted Cardinal

Cardinal Raymond Burke once held the high-ranking position of Cardinal Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura. However, last year, Pope Frank — disagreeing with his right-wing positions on things — demoted him to “patron” of the Knights of Malta, which was a major diss.

Now that he has more time on his hands, Cardinal Burke — a man known for having spent $20,000 on a bejeweled crown and $30,000 on a glamorous 20-foot long cape (pictured above) — is giving out interviews to prestigious internet sites like “The New eMANgelization” about how women went and ruined the Catholic Church with all their silly talk of liberation and whathaveyou.
