Scary. Feministing via Think Progress finds these abstinence-promoting sweatpants at Kmart, which are part of the retailer's Piper & Blue line. Think Progress notes the product description: "Whether she is lounging around the house, going to practice, or doing her chores. These soft athletic style crop pants will keep her comfy. Perfect for wearing with her favorite sweatshirt or tee. These athletic pants boldly proclaim just where she stands by pointing out that 'True Love Waits' in a large screen print on the front and back of these pants." What's next? "Get outta my pants" underwear?
