Should Gals Wear Protest Pants to Church?

December 14th, 2012 by Ask a Liberal Mormon

Yes! Gals should wear protest pants to church.

Sisters, show some solidarity this Sunday and go to sacrament meeting wearing protest pants! Show the patriarchal people of this church what you think of them and their woman-hating doctrines. Flaunt your defiance, ladies, loud and proud, and feel the power in feminist sisterhood!

(Please don’t wear pants for some other reason, though, like they’re comfortable or you don’t have anything better. We don’t want to dilute our unified message of individual empowerment and personal choice.)

Some of you may be worried that the sexist men and women at church will be upset with you. Don’t be! Just remind them that church isn’t about contention or argument and that they should stop being so divisive. Lovingly and in a supportive way, teach them that being angry proves they’re sexist.

Finally, please don’t go bra-less or try to bless the sacrament or volunteer at a woman’s shelter. Part of the message we’re trying to send here is that feminist women aren’t obsessed with clothes and trivia and are willing to take real risks, so its important that we focus.

OK, let’s do this, God will be so proud.

For years I’ve been told by feminists not to assume that a woman wearing pants to church is trying to make a statement. Now…

Now you know we’re making a statement, and you’re running scared. Protest pants power!

Meh. You should see what I wear to church.

My co-congregants have been remarkably tolerant, which I greatly appreciate. Of course, I’m not trying to make a statement, politically, fashion-wise, or any other -wise.

Now that the sartorial is political, I genuinely look forward to future fashion statements by this and other organizations devoted to ameliorate the peculiar miasma suffered by the oppressed victims of cultural insecurity.

Ahem, devoted to *ameliorating*, that is.

Mahana, you ugly. Get down from that high horse.

Yesterday at the beginning of Family Home Evening, I asked my 15-year-old son to quit lying on the couch and sit up with his feet on the floor. He responded with a surly “Why?” I didn’t think about it at the time, but was there some Facebook page set up enlisting youth to lie with their legs on the arms of couches at Family Home Evenings around the world last night? If there was, what was it in in support of? And was my “because I said so, you uncivilized barbarian” the correct patriarchal response?

Obviously it was to support poor people who can’t afford legs to put on the floor, you heartless man:
