Worn during competitive sports? Pshaw. No serious athlete would ever wear a running skirt.
So what about stuntwoman Jessie Graff who became the first woman to complete Stage 1 in the American Ninja Warrior’s finals? In what appeared to be an effortless, badass feat, she wore a sparkly green skirt and bra inspired by the Green Lantern.
While most of the Internet cried “F yeah!”, some were less enthusiastic. They couldn’t get past her wardrobe: “Yeah, but her glitter green skirt is kinda ridiculous – why not just wear a regular sports bra and shorts?” Or they assumed she wore a skirt to be funny, which might be bolstered by the fact that she competed in a chicken suit – with a skirt – a few years before. But it doesn’t matter. You want to know why?
Because I don’t care. I f’ing love running skirts.
