Summer Glau's Love Slave: radarlove: Women's vaginas are filled with mucus and occasionally yeast, smell off-putting, are naturally covered in hair (or unnaturally in stubble), gush blood a week out of the month, and look like a Predator face.


   that is such a deep subject..

Ass-jackers.  also a good name for the fabric women use to hide their filthy crotches.

I'm married and my wife and I generally have bigger things to worry about than words like "panties" or "c*nt."  In fact, we both use those words frequently.  People need to get over themselves.

Well FARK,you susprise me.I expected at least one Farker to mention how sexy and comfortable he felt wearing panties.

The Huffington Post's Zoë Triska named it "the worst word ever."

Duly noted. From now on, your panties will be called "coont covers".

We could call them pink taco wrappers, everyone likes that. What's really stupid is when twunts complain when those cheap ass rubber sandals are referred to as "thongs" and you have to point out to the dumb biatches that the thong panties were actually named after the footwear. Farktards

heap: 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?


Now that I have completed a GIS for "scissoring panties" the ads here on fark are getting more of my attention.

lunkhed: Round here it's 'kecks' or 'grundies'.

The word 'woman' infers adjunction to 'man' and is offensive The same applies to 'male' and 'female'. The correct and acceptable descriptive of gender is 'person' and 'woperson'.

No, wait...


I prefer "wench". Gives me an excuse to talk like a pirate.

Let the word go forth: from now on women will only be able to wear thongs or nothing at all. Problem solved.

I hate the words Panty and Panties.  Oh, shiat.  I'm a woman.

And a Carlin: Why do we call it A bra, and PAIR of panties?  One thing goes in panties and 2 things go in a bra.

Allen. The end.: mongbiohazard: 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."

If by "assjack" you mean put things in perspective because the idiot author of TFA seems to have lost hers, then thank you.

Way to re-enforce the stereotype that women constantly complain about unimportant things just to give themselves a reason to berate some poor dude and act indignantly superior.

No, Subtard,  women do not hate the word 'panties', nor was that even suggested in the article.  One opinion writer and her friends happen to  dislike the word 'panties' because it's a bit obnoxious to them. FFS, if you're going to try for a Fark Misogyny Thread (or whatever the hell you were going for, but I can't really see any other options), at least dig out a Republican speaking off-record about his honest opinions on MRA groups or something.

Oh God!  Can you think of a more pervy writer than Piers?  I've read a lot of his stuff (he puts out like 3 books a year) and I don't any more because he's just too damn creepy.  I'm a single 47 year-old dude and I think he's creepy.  Figure that out!

TFA:
When it comes to trends, women often set them rather than follow them

As can be witnessed by the shelves full of magazines which tell women about the trends they'll be setting the coming season.

see, coont covers would be better, because of the alliteration.

Have you forgotten where we are? Anyone taking the time to post in this thread about people needing to get over it should maybe look in the mirror, and then... get over it. Fark is just a glorified time wasting experience anyway.

Broads that complain about the word panties have too much time on their hands.  Their hubbies need get them in line and tell them to get their biatch asses back in the kitchen.
 
2013-02-16 01:08:55 PM
Panties means small pants. I don't see what the problem is. Maybe "pantlings" or "pantikins" or "panticles" as an alternative...?
    
I totally understand how they feel.  It causes me no end of grief to have my underclothes referred to with such violence-laden epithets as "boxers" and "wife beaters".


Lets solve 3 problems then and change the word boxers to panties.
1) Boxers are shaped more like pants than women's underwear so the word is more accurate
2) men don't have to deal with violence-laden epithets
3) women can relax when men start to talk about panties.

How many men complaining about this woman's biatching just recoiled at the idea of having their underwear called panties?

I have lived in the US for 20 years, but "panties" still strikes my ear as the sort of a word a heavy-breathing pervert uses during an obscene phone call.  Nasty.

This
I've lived here all my life and it has the same effect on me.
We need a non-sexual word to describe the lower half of women's underwear. One that can be used for small children as well as old and/or obese women and not make anyone cringe.

As a Hegemonic Patriarch, I was planning to stop oppressing women today, but now I see that the real problem is the use of the term "panties", so instead, I'll continue my oppression, but I'll stop using that term.

You're welcome.

Well, see, men have a good reason to cringe when hearing their underwear being referred to as "panties", because in Deliverance, the head Hillbilly told Ned Beatty "them panties, take 'em off" just before sodomizing him right in the asshole.

Heh. I think you and I may have read the same blog post on this initially. Some gal was complaining about the two words she hates most: "panties" and "moist." Wait...youfarkinkiddingme?

[maximumtrolling.jpg]

For reasons not totally clear to me, I refer to all underwear as simply "und." For example: "Here, I just finished sorting the und. Go put yours away for me." or "Let's see, I'll be gone three days so I'll need three und..." and etc.
 
2013-02-16 01:13:43 PM
Since a great many of my actions are characterized as "panty-droppers", I'm afraid I just can't support this bullshiat about not liking the word, sorry.

I just called my secretary and told her that as per feminists with too much time on their hands we will have no more panties in the office starting now, I warned her that I will be personally following up on that mandate on monday and random inspections to come.
