Those aren't skinny jeans, those are leggings. An unfortunate garment that shows every bulge, orifice and a few other things that don't even have names on the human body. I suspect if some people knew what these garments actually looked like they wouldn't wear them. But others do know and are perfectly fine with them. So there you go.

And I had to learn every damn one of them for an anatomy class in college. D-:

(I have since forgotten most of them. But I remember being amazed how damn near every bump on a bone and individual muscle bundle had been named.)

it must be sad to be that embarrassed of your own body.

First, fashion is very subjective thing. Second, leggings are supremely comfortable. Especially for anyone whose proportions don't perfectly match off the rack clothes.
Not everyone is as insecure or vain as you seem to be.

And who among us can turn away from a slow motion replay as they "inch" down the field?

Insulated running tights - fall weight.

Like bike tights, but no bulky pad.

Clearly walking with a baby carriage and wearing flat sneakers.

This makes it 100x worse than skinny jeans!

Benches are sometimes designed to prevent you from sleeping on them, at least not comfortably. I thought this WAS designed to be slept on (in?). No matter how drunk you are, once you fall in, you can’t fall off it!
