Women Wearing Pants

The main verse I have seen used to support women not wearing pants is Deut 22:5. It seems this could be read to be only a prohibition against cross-dressing. If you believe a woman should not wear pants, what other scriptural support do you base your belief on? Since Deut 22:5 is ambiguous--i.e., open to more than one interpretation--more verses need to brought into the discussion to establish what Deut 22:5 means.

Re: Women Wearing Pants

I have always found it interesting that the definition for the word “wear”, in Deut. 22:5, is different than all the other definitions for “wear” in the OT. It is also interesting that this particular definition is used only once in the OT, only in Deut 22:5.

I have never had anyone adequately explain that to me. The definition appears to have a more intense meaning.

Re: Women Wearing Pants

I believe Deut 22:5 is more about women trying to assume the ROLE of a man, not merely wearing a man's garment.

Interesting. I have not heard this before. I hope someone can comment on this.

How do you see this primary meaning as speaking to the issue of women wearing pants today? Does it have any relevance?

While I appreciate your view, "hayah" will still have to be explained.

You don't "become" a man by wearing pants, i.e., Laura Bush for example.

Re: Women Wearing Pants

Job 38:3
Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

Job 40:7
Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

The interpretation is that these Scriptures imply that only men girded up their loins. Pants on a woman cause her to do something only men were supposed to do.
