Moist panties are still awesome right?
 
2013-02-16 08:31:12 AM  
It's one of those words that becomes more absurd the more one thinks about it.
 
2013-02-16 08:42:33 AM  
This article reads like that awkward moment when you ask your friends "Hey guys, don't you hate it when...?" and no one does.
 
2013-02-16 08:44:25 AM  
I don't like that word either, but I'm an adult male. When I was a child my mom called underwear (both sexes) "chonies".
 
2013-02-16 08:46:28 AM  
What the hell kind of women is the author hanging out with? I've met a whole slew of women who would slit your throat and piss down your neck hole if you said the word coont or twat but never met one gave a shirt about the word panties.

"What's wrong with her underwear?"

"They're not in my mouth"

moist panties in their crevice.

My only problem with word is my mil raised three girls and will use the word panties for all underwear for both genders.  Really annoying when your toddler son just got potty trained and runs out the bathroom in his briefs just to have grandma say 'Oh, your running around in your panties'.  Quit it woman, my sons are boys, not your granddaughters.

/she also had a thing about using the phrase 'butt burp'
//she quit that, when I started using the phrase 'face fart'

Actually, I've always found the word "underpants" to be stupid, childish, and a bit creepy.

But you don't seem me getting my panties in a bunch over it.
 
2013-02-16 09:18:51 AM  
Pantaloons sounds like perverted cartoon chraracters.

Don't everyone get your panties in ---

Dammit!

How about we rename panties to "clothes under my trousers." Or cumt for short.
 
2013-02-16 09:44:33 AM  
On blondes they are known as 'ankle warmers'...

I thought those were earmuffs.

When their ankles are behind their ears...

farkers, i am disappoint. i'm not sure what these "panties" look like.
 
2013-02-16 09:50:50 AM  
Sounds like someone has Terminal PMS.

Stop wearing them and we'll stop talking about them.
 
2013-02-16 11:42:20 AM  
I remember the day that EBay banned the sales of used panties. You cried.
 
2013-02-16 11:48:40 AM  
The panties their mothers laid out for them?
 
2013-02-16 11:48:56 AM  
This article's author seems to have her panties in a bunch.

I'm with Christina Hendricks: "Panties is a wonderful word. It's girly. It's naughty. Say it more."
 
2013-02-16 11:49:50 AM  
Hoo Hoo like typing detected.

/Author need to wash the sand from her Veeginer.

It forced us back into the unscrupulous and sometimes unsavory world of the used panties black market, is all it did.
 
2013-02-16 11:50:21 AM  
Sounds like someones knickers are in a bunch.
 
2013-02-16 11:50:30 AM  
No word makes women nuts more than "c*nt". You can call women any name in the book, but as soon a the C word come out, it's on.
 
2013-02-16 11:51:30 AM  
We hate it about as much as you guys hate the word "sorry".

I'm a Pittsburgher, man!

They're called "gutchies"
 
2013-02-16 11:54:50 AM  
Some people really need to learn the meaning of the phrase "you gotta pick your battles."

Really. Let it go.

and then when they stand on their heads they become brunettes with bad breath.

Drat, you beat me to it.

I just think the word is kind of stupid, but the Brits have been on this one for decades. Knickers it is!

Popcorn Johnny: No word makes women nuts more than "c*nt". You can call women any name in the book, but as soon a the C word come out, it's on.


I heard a comedian (Bill Burr, I think, but don't quote me on that) say that using the c-word is like taking the argument nuclear.  At that point, it's pretty much mutual assured destruction for the relationship.
 
2013-02-16 11:56:50 AM  
i've always been fond of 'grunders'.
 
2013-02-16 11:56:51 AM  
Why does the word "panties" bother so many people?


Because they're too wealthy and too pampered and don't know what real problems are like anymore so they have to invent bullshiat non-problems to fuss over like the useless parasites they are.


"Please lady, tell me more about how the word panties shouldn't be used."

I love the word knickers.

We live in a society that made being perpetually offended a positive characteristic.
 
2013-02-16 11:57:33 AM  
Bottom part is underwear, top is a bra (or camisole, or sports bra, or corset, or whatever).  There's too much variation in the bottom part to label it as the type, but not up top.  Done and done.
 
2013-02-16 11:57:45 AM  
Subbyie is correct, pointless article is pointless.
 
2013-02-16 11:57:45 AM  
I've disliked this word for the same reason. We call them Knickers in Aus/UK.

I like people like this. It lets me know that I don't ever need to take them seriously about anything. Saves a lot of time.
 
2013-02-16 11:58:19 AM  
I concur.  It's 2013, I think we can pick a better word.  I suggest something a little less cringeworthy, like twuntcovers.

Frank N Stein: We live in a society that made being perpetually offended a positive characteristic.


Stop shaming me.
 
2013-02-16 11:58:54 AM  
Someone has their knickers in a twist about people asking if she has her panties in a bunch.
 
2013-02-16 11:59:56 AM  
i think the only time the term makes my ear twitch is when it's in the singular.

a panty. a pant. a scissor. scissoring panty.

what were we talking about again?

CarrieWhite: I've disliked this word for the same reason. We call them Knickers in Aus/UK.


We could go back to the older British term, smallclothes.

/No, Robert Jordan didn't invent that.
 
2013-02-16 12:01:38 PM  
 Extremely prejudicial article that fails to acknowledge the stigma suffered by manzier wearers everywhere..
 
2013-02-16 12:03:27 PM  
I love panties.  Great word.

knickers and c*nt.  two words that will guarantee you don't get any.

panties, pu$$y, f*ck, hard...

now those words are nearly guaranteed to produce a slippery thumb.

/Watches the virgins flock to google to figure out what a slippery thumb is.
