Town in Rhode Island is hosting a yoga pants protest

Women are planning to hold a protest parade in Rhode Island in response to a man who said he disliked yoga pants on adult women.

According to the Providence Journal, women in Barrington plan to have to the parade on Sunday to demonstrate that they can wear what they would like.

Town resident Alan Sorrentino wrote to the Barrington Times expressing his disdain of yoga pants on "mature, adult women."

Sorrentino went on to say yoga pants were stinky, tacky and ridiculous looking.

Sorrentino said yoga pants were more suitable in the yoga studio, finding it disturbing to see women in public wearing them. He suggested women wear a "nice pair of tailored slacks" or jeans instead.

“To all yoga pant wearers, I struggle with my own physicality as I age. I don't want to struggle with yours,” Sorrentino added in the letter.

In response to Sorrentino’s comments, women have called his remarks sexist.
