Deu 22:5 “A woman does not wear that which pertains to a man, nor does a man put on a woman’s garment, for whoever does this is an abomination to יהוה your mighty one.
This scripture is most often taken to mean that women cannot wear pants; however, it is one that automatically harkens back to this scripture: 1Cor 11:3, to which we’ll come back to later. Right now let’s see why Yah says what he says, “A woman does not wear that which pertains to a man…”
It’s common knowledge pants were invented for men. The design itself gives this away (which includes a fly, or the opening created so that men can urinate without lowering their pants.) In the Western World, women have historically worn dresses and skirt-like garments while men have worn trousers or pants. But during the late 19th century, women started to wear trousers and blouses for industrial work. During World War II women wore their husband's trousers while they took on jobs, as pants made for women had yet to be invented. This is unacceptable; a woman does not put on a man’s garment as Yah tells us in his word. Yah is not saying that women cannot wear pants made for women, but that a woman should not put on men’s clothing. (Understand that pants should not be assumed to be a form of men’s clothing only as there are pants made for women) At this time, and today as well, there are women who put on clothing made for men. Homosexual women or lesbians wear men’s clothing all the time, to include pants. This is what Yah means when he says, “A woman does not wear that which pertains to a man…” because of the spirit that is behind it. Yah is trying to tell us not to take on the role of a man, not to take over his authority spiritually. In the 1970s, trousers became especially fashionable for women and so these pants women can wear, but only those that are made for women. Yah does not accept a man wearing women’s pants as homosexuals do today. A man cannot wear any kind of pants he likes because there are clothing made specifically for both sexes. To say that women can’t wear pants implies that men can wear any kind of pants they like. And this is not so.
1Co 11:3 And I wish you to know that the head of every man is the Messiah, and thehead of woman is the man, and the head of Messiah is Yah.

Yah is simply trying to teach us our roles. Wearing only what pertains to us teaches us that homosexuality is wrong. It teaches us that to go into the order of the opposite sex is wrong. It is important to understand that a sin is the transgression of the law, (1Jhn 3:4) therefore what is not law, is not sin. For example, there is no law against drinking, so it is not a sin, but there is a law against drunkenness, and so therefore it is a sin. There is no law that says that women should not wear pants, but there is a law that speaks against homosexuality. It is important to understand this. That when Yah says not to wear men’s clothing, it means just that: Don’t practice homosexuality. This is what this scripture is telling us, but because Satan is physical and fleshly, he has us thinking in that way. He has us focusing more on whether or not to wear pants, instead of realizing that Yah simply don’t accept lesbian and gay behavior.
Still, if there is something that causes us to stumble, even if it is not a sin, then we are to cut it off:
Mat 18:8 “And if your hand or foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it
away from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or crippled, rather than
having two hands or two feet, to be thrown into the everlasting fire.
Mat 18:9 “And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away
from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two
eyes, to be thrown into the fire of Gehenna.
So if wearing pants becomes a stumbling block for a woman of Yah, from which she has tempted her temple (body) or the eyes of wondering men, she shall cut it off. Only if she does cut it off, that woman has to be sure not to proclaim it to be a sin because it has been a stumbling block for her. The feminist movement gave way to the idea that women can dress like whores. Because of this, we no longer have simple pants and jeans modestly worn of women. Now we have pants and jeans purposely made to fit every crease of every shape of the Hebrew woman’s body. In this instance, many women have found themselves wearing dresses and skirts most often to keep from seducing spirits and the roaming eyes of foul men. This is fine, as long as we do not take it upon ourselves to say that it’s wrong to wear period. Yah speaks in the spiritual, and according to the spiritual matters, a woman in men’s clothing is a homosexual. This is the main idea of Yah’s law for women not to wear men’s clothing and men not to wear women’s clothing. If I slip on my husband’s shirt to sleep in or to run to the bathroom, am I then sinning? Not at all. But if I wear this as my own clothing, if I am a lesbian, this is sinning. But because we live in a physical world, there are people who teach men according to the physical. Adding laws and taking them away based on the physical.
In closing, pants are ok for women to wear, as long as it is not worn in a whorish and disrespectful manner to Yah and to our temples.
1Pe 3:3 Your adornment should not be outward – arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on dresses –
1Pe 3:4 but the hidden Man of the heart, with the incorruptible ornament of a meek and peaceable spirit, which is of great value before Yah.
1Pe 3:5 For in this way, in former times, the set-apart women who trusted in Yah also adorned themselves, being subject to their own husbands,
1Pe 3:6 as Sarah obeyed Aḇraham, calling him master, of whom you became children, doing good, and not frightened by any fear.
