WATCH: YouTube prankster proves men will stare at ANYTHING in tight yoga pants
Ladies, we've all been there: you're walking down the street in your leggings or yoga pants, just minding your own business, when you feel someone's eyes and turn around to find a guy staring at your butt. It's creepy, degrading, and at the very least, annoying.
Well, YouTube personality Yousef Salah Erakat recently experienced that for himself when he put on a pair of tight-fitting yoga pants and gauged other male's responses. His stunt ended up tricking tons of guys who mistakenly believed him to be a woman--and their reactions when they discover the truth are pretty much priceless. You gotta watch it for yourself!

Erakat, who is known for pulling these prank-like social experiments, prefaces the video by explaining, "A friend of mine recently told me that I had no idea how hard it is being a girl, because when she wears leggings, everybody stares at her butt. So today, I'm going to find out exactly how hard it is."
He set the scene by putting on the leggings and then pretending to rummage around in his car's trunk (therefore hiding his face and head). As predicted, he experienced plenty of staring. But the best part is that every single time he caught someone looking at him, he'd pop his head up--revealing that he's a guy-- and confront the man, accusingly asking, "Were you just staring at my butt?" Ha!
Most of the guys were just embarrassed, but some were downright angry. Only ONE showed any sense of humor at all, saying, "You have a nice ass!"
The whole thing is hilarious, of course, but it also highlights some important problems we face today. Not only does it prove that women are still facing sexism and street harassment on a daily basis, it also shows that homophobia (as can be seen from one dude, who screams, "Are you trying to call me gay or something?") is, sadly, still alive and well.
