Facebook has been abuzz lately because BYU-I banned skinny jeans. Even Jonathan Jones had something to say about it. When I hung out with Jonathan back stage (I know, right) a few years ago he mention Rexburg (i.e., BYU-I) is one of his favorite places to perform.
And just in case you don’t believe that I’ve hung out back stage with Jonathan Jones, here are some pics. I’m famous.
Students were encouraged to have a visit with their Heavenly Father regarding their modesty. I’m okay with the ban because the ban on skinny jeans, turns out, wasn’t really a ban, and let’s be honest: a lot of amusing things have been said and created in response to the commotion. Here are some of my favorites.
This one is from Stan.
And this one is from some random girl on Facebook.
And this one from… the testing center…? I’m not sure where it came from but it’s been distributed widely on Facebook.
On a serious note, I find it interesting that none of the new reports have indicated whether men are also being kicked out of testing centers for wearing pants that are too tight for God. Perhaps this is another manifestation of sexism at BYU? As one blogger points out, women shouldn’t be held accountable for the thoughts men have (when they see BYU-I girls wearing skinny jeans).
