If there’s any piece of clothing you turn to in order to feel the most comfortable, confident, and—of course—zen, it’s your yoga pants. After all, they’re the chic stars of your wardrobe that you don when you’re proving your body’s amazing strength.

Well, one man had to go and hate on everyone’s favorite athleisure item with an angry letter to the editor of The Barrington (RI) Times: “The absolute worst thing to ever happen in women fashion is the recent development of yoga pants as daily wear outside the yoga studio,” writes Alan Sorrentino, a Rhode Island resident (and, we’re guessing, not a yogi).

“Like the mini-skirt, yoga pants can be adorable on children and young women who have the benefit of nature’s blessing of youth. However, on mature, adult women there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public. Maybe it’s the unforgiving perspective they provide, inappropriate for general consumption, TMI, or the spector [sp] of someone coping poorly with their weight or advancing age that makes yoga pants so weird in public,” he writes.

Um, excuse us? “Disturbing”? The women of Barrington were not about to be deterred from wearing their beloved leggings just because of one body-confidence hater, though.

In fact, they got all “warrior pose” about it and organized a yoga pants parade, with over 300 women strutting through town in their finest workout wear—and supporting the idea of loving yoga bodies of all shapes, sizes, and ages.

“We’re super positive about our pants, our bodies and ourselves,” writes one attendee. “It was a beautiful walk with an intense warrior sequence at the end.”

Maybe Sorrentino should take some cues from the amazingly inspiring body positivity movement happening in the fitness world and find some self-love—and a new topic to write about.

Take a look inside the parade below.
