Yes, of course tights are literally not pants. They may cover the legs in a similar fashion, but they cannot or should not replace pants. They’re not designed to be worn as pants, because there’s really insufficient coverage in the panty/brief area. But apparently, there are enough people out there crossing the line that someone decided to create a website specifically to call out the atrocity. Visit “Tights Are Not Pants“. Click on the main image to read their manifesto. It’s amusing. 😀
