On what leggings are (and are not).

<I was explaining to a group of student leaders what they are allowed to wear on our field trip this weekend…>
“So, as long as you’re wearing pants or a skirt and no hat or shorts, we’ll be good.”
“Can we wear leggings?”
<Long pause.>
“What?”
“Are leggings pants?”
“Yeeeeesssss…”
“No. Leggings are not pants.”
“Then what are they?”
“Leggings. Leggings are leggings. They go under skirts and dresses, or on ballerinas, but should not be worn as actual pants any other time.”
“Wow. You just like, destroyed every pair of leggings’s dream.”
“Yeah, leggings can be whatever they want to be!”
“Leggings are leggings. They are not pants. Wear pants. Or a skirt with leggings under them.”
“Rules, man. Rules.”
