I really don't get this weird kind of sexism regarding clothes. I guess I will read some history about it just now.
Pants reveal the contours of the body, while giant poofy skirts reveal it. Also, pants are men's clothing, used for working, so women wearing them is usurping manish behaviors and appearance, which is against the godly position of women as subservient and docile. In fact, "gentleel" dress for ladies was supposed to show off that they did not do manly, phsyical labor like the lower classes by making it physically impossible to do so. Corsets, hoop skirts, tight little fancy shoes mean you can't bend or do anything, and only a high class idle female could get through life with that.
Had a man like that yelling on campus my freshman year of college. He told me I shouldn't wear pants, so I started yelling about him wanting me to undress in public. As I am today, I would've actually thrown those pants at him.
