It is not a pant. A pant is only one part of it, hence why it is called a pair of pants. A pant is just one side, so please do not insist on finding me a pant that fits my shape as I want a pair of them sewn together. I realize this is big in the garment/fashion industry and that only bothers me more because it seems to me that it came about to make those saying it feel more refined. This may not be the case, they may have always called it a pant but it is only leaking out of the fashion/garment world recently, but that is still how I interpret it. I also just think it sounds stupid.
