Today we learned that some Mormons are prudes, particularly those wrathful BYU co-eds fighting tooth and nail to keep skinny jeans illegal. Perhaps it isn't a moral thing, but actually a Freshman Fifteen thing that has them tossing their denim onto a smoldering ban fire. One commenter sets the scene for us with some BYU fanfic.
Following yesterday's report about BYU-Idaho had banned skinny jeans, officials at the Mormon university overturned the ban. But skinny-jeans-gate isn't over! Intrepid student journalists are on the case, reporting that rogue prudes within the University hierachy fought to keep skinny jeans out—possibly discriminating against the "curvy"—before they were overruled.
Updated. The first time I read this, I thought it was parody: Independent Brigham Young University publication The Student Review reports that BYU-Idaho has banned skinny jeans as part of its honor code guidelines against "form-fitting clothing." Skinny jeans: trousers of the devil? Don't tell Mitt Romney.
