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".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cutesey words like "panties" and things like frilly lace and the color pink have been appropriated to trick potential suitors into forgetting just what disgusting germ-filled incubators women really are.

But if a small group of women want to wreck that for everyone else, whatever.
 
2013-02-16 12:07:43 PM
Panty as a singular of panties makes about as much sense as pant as a singular for pants. Or scissor as a singular for scissors.

It's not the word it's how you say it. In English we have no outlet for this, words is words. Even enunciaciation is lost. Panties are something you buy your kid. PanTIes are what your wife says when she's frisky. It isn't that the words have been infantilized, the emphasis has been dumbed down. You wouldn't put PanTIes on your kid unless you're on TLC. Panties come in with patterns, panTIes come in shapes.

coont is just an ugly-sounding word...also when someone uses it it's usually meant with extreme disrespect. It's probably a chicken and egg type thing for why it became such a bad word, but the one person who has ever called me a coont was one of the men's rights type who feels like his mother is responsible for all of his problems in life and he projects that onto every female he meets.

That's the type of man who calls a woman a coont. Most men aren't that stupid.

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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

This.  Did someone forget the word "underwear"?  As in "mens' underwear" or "womens' underwear" or "Whose underwear has been sitting on the bathroom floor for a week?" or "My grandma ripped a big hole in her underwear."

The author of the article isn't demanding that a new word be added to our language to describe her underwear, because it already exists.  She's demanding that Victoria's Secret stop using a sexual-sounding word in their advertisements.  (Presumably so she can shop for her lace thongs and high heels in an unintimidating, non-sexualized context?)  For god's sake, just go two doors down to the Dress Barn and be done with it.

Her sister is retarded.  When I said grandma ripped a big hole in her underwear, did you think "Well, I shore hope her boobs are OK"?  Neither did anyone else.

That's an excellent point. Allow me a rebuttal: Article author, why in the hell are you talking about your underclothing with someone you don't know well enough that you can just call it whatever word pops into your head first?!?

Aquapope: Dragonflew: I am only creeped out by the word when used by Piers Anthony.  *shudder*

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!


I used to read his stuff when I was a teen and never realised until later how disgusting he was. His love of fourteen-year-old's panties were all over the Xanth books, one was even named after them.  I won't even get into the willing 5-year-old in Firefly, which disgusted me. I think he's sick. Hopefully he gets it all out of his system in text, and has not harmed anyone.

Oh jesus, I just anagrammed Piers Anthony in my head.  It comes out to "HORNY PANTIES".

"Panties" is a perfectly cromulent word.

"Knickers" will do in a pinch.

"Underpants" is silly but it reminds of the underpants gnome episode of South Park so it's cool.

Only underwear word that sounds off to me is "gaunch".

Where the hell did that come from?

2013-02-16 02:30:24 PM
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.

So you are telling me that guys associate the word panties with ass rape - which is fine for women, but gives them the creeps? More likely the writer knew what a creepy word it is and used it to enhance the scene.

Why is there a need for some special word at all?
Just call them underpants and be done with it - it's not like men wear trousers and women were trousies.
That's why I originally mentioned "underpants" and not just "underwear".


Actually I just use the word underwear. Underpants is acceptable too, but panties is just creepy.

The fact that she realized the whole premise of her article was bullshiat and included a made-up story about a conversation with her sister to try to patch it over is particularly telling.  Go GIS the phrase "women's underwear" and see how many pictures come up with just a bra.  There's no ambiguity.  It's all panties.

Love the word panties. So sexual. This is the problem. There are plenty of time when a sexual reference us unwanted, such as when the person wearing them is prepubescent or over 60, or on the rag, or sick or busy or...

Having a sexual reference in a non-sexual situation is what makes the word creepy.

Ah yes, "perspective."  Perspective is so important:  without it, we can never call everyone idiots and hypocrites and dismiss their day-to-day life as insignificant, or insult them for having the temerity to write about whatever interests them.

If only this author had some "perspective," she'd realize that it's idiotic to write about pretty much anything, because someone else is dying of malaria on the opposite side of the world.  If only she had some perspective, she'd realize that the only appropriate use of written language is to sanctimoniously harp on people for not having perspective.

Depends on the context. In the throes of some really dirty, degrading sex acts it can really get the right kind of woman hot and bothered.

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

"Ho, wench!  Fetch me anotha flagon of ale 'n' come warm me knees!"  Best bellowed as you slap your hand on the table hard enough to rattle glassware.

Used to fark with familiar barmaids like that.  Other patrons would look at me like, "Does this guy have a death wish?"  If I timed it right, someone would spew beer out his nose, which was nice.

I've never understood why we pluralize what we wear below the waist; each one is a single garment. It's not like you wear one "panty" or "short" or "brief" etc. per leg, then attach them in the middle. I'm not wearing a "shirts" right now, but I am wearing pantS.

Strangely, the exception is "thong"; so "number of butt cheeks contained" determines a garment's singularity or plurality?

Also, I feel a little creepy saying the word "panties".

biatch has a clothing fetish and won't get real. She reminds me of a crazy biatch I dated who got offended that I wore briefs instead of boxers. I never even thought or cared about underwear because the women in my family kept me so well supplied with gifts every Christmas that I never had to buy my own. Underwear is underwear. But this chick called my Fruit-of-the-Loom briefs "panties." Then she bought me 10 pair of silk boxer shorts and threw out all my briefs.

So just to piss her off I went out and bought some Hanes Her Way and wore them all the time. But she foiled my cunning plan by saying she thought they were sexy and was cool with it. Go figure.

Xcott: mongbiohazard: Allen. The end.: Damn dude, way to assjack a thread.

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

Ah yes, "perspective."  Perspective is so important:  without it, we can never call everyone idiots and hypocrites and dismiss their day-to-day life as insignificant, or insult them for having the temerity to write about whatever interests them.

If only this author had some "perspective," she'd realize that it's idiotic to write about pretty much anything, because someone else is dying of malaria on the opposite side of the world.  If only she had some perspective, she'd realize that the only appropriate use of written language is to sanctimoniously harp on people for not having perspective.


Well, hopefully it was humor piece, otherwise it sounds like a lousy episode of "it grinds my gears."

The thing I've never got about these random people who are offended by the term panties is what else do you call them? My understanding is that it is the term for a certain kind of underwear. Much like boxers, briefs, boy shorts, thongs, etc, etc. If you don't like panties... well then don't wear them. There's all kinds of underwear out there, panties are just some of the most popular for most women.
 
2013-02-16 06:33:05 PM
Oh enough with the over sensitivity!! I'm almost positive if they were always called undergarments instead of 'panties' women would have them in knots because the word wasn't sexy enough. You're allowed to have an opinion but cripes, there are bigger battles to fight!!!!!

Fromageball: 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.

coont is just an ugly-sounding word...

the one person who has ever called me a coont was one of the men's rights type who feels like his mother is responsible for all of his problems in life and he projects that onto every female he meets.

Yeah, I think it's probably my least favorite word in the English language.  I can't even say it -- I have trouble spitting it out the same way I have trouble with the N-word, probably in part because it makes me feel like it might associate me with the sort of people who DO those those words.


quokka70: I grew up in Australia where the word is "knickers", as mentioned above.

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.


Huh, that's funny.  I never had any particular problem with the word, but if I had to have an opinion about it, to me it actually sounds more childish than sexual.  Maybe it's just the "ie" sound at the end of the word that does it for me -- nicknames for people or things are sometimes made by omitting a syllable or two from the end and replacing it with the "ie" sound.  It makes it sound sort of like a cutesie short term to me.
 
2013-02-16 08:43:20 PM

Atharaenea: I thought I was the only one who hated that word.  Panties are what little girls wear.  Women wear underwear.  Bras are not called underwear, they're called bras.


See, this is what I always thought.

You mean like seeing the word "panties" in a Richard Scarry book?

I think there are creepier things in Richard Scarry books, like the pedophile fox in Officer Montey of Monaco (probably the only evil character in a Richard Scarry book, he is drawn with uniquely red eyes.)  Or the simple fact that the animals routinely sit down to eat roast beef, and thus there are no cows among all the characters.  They have cats, pigs, yaks, alligators, baboons, elephants, but never any cows, unless he's illustrating a Mother Goose rhyme about a cow.  Remember that the next time you read to your kids:  just over one of those pleasant green hillsides is a prison camp where the cow characters have all been sent for processing, like something out of "V: the final battle."

Fatherhood.  Once you have to read the same book hundreds of times, you start to notice these things.  I grew up with these same books and never noticed the absence of cows---but somewhere around the 200th time I read my son Feed Big Hilda Hippo her ABCs, it finally occurred to me that this mouse is feeding a hippo a big roast (R for roast,) and this is possible because Scarry tapped one species of animal to stay behind the scenes and only really appear as food.

The critters in Richard Scarry's world will also eat turkey at Thanksgiving, and sausages of unspecified animal content, and bacon.  The pigs in particular seem to have no issue with eating bacon.  For some reason I find that a lot less creepy than the missing cows, because you know the cows have to be somewhere, because they are eaten.  And you know they're just as sentient as the other animals, because it wouldn't make sense to have sentient pigs/sheep/goats/yaks/moose/ponies but regular cows.  The only logical conclusion is that the animals of Busytown drew lots a la Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, to decide who would be the food.

It's written by a woman, so it's automatically "feminism."

If a guy writes some dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber, it's a dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber.  If a woman writes some dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber, it's an indictment of feminism---either she's disproven feminism, or she's given feminism a bad name, by doing something insufficiently important or intelligent or serious at some time t.

dreck columns about celebs are dreck columns about celebs regardless of how the author came equipped from the factory.

when a female author writes things such as "Women, it seems, would rather not shimmy into a garment whose name would also suggest they are shimmying into a pair of knee socks and saddle shoes and handed an oversized lollipop. " or "It's well-documented that women are ahead of the curve when it comes to linguistic ingenuity. When it comes to trends, women often set them rather than follow them-so if women are disgusted, then it's our responsibility to keep the conversation going "
then the dreck column takes on a decidedly gyno-centric "I AM WOMAN AND MY OPINION IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS" tone.

Xcott: MadAzza: hasty ambush: /Stuff like this is one of the reasons I do not take feminism seriously.

What the F*CK does that article have to do with feminism?

It's written by a woman, so it's automatically "feminism."

If a guy writes some dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber, it's a dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber.  If a woman writes some dreck gossip column about Justin Bieber, it's an indictment of feminism---either she's disproven feminism, or she's given feminism a bad name, by doing something insufficiently important or intelligent or serious at some time t.

Also, this only applies to journalists.  I can blast a journalist for doing something pointless and unimportant, even if I work at McDonalds and my primary contribution to humanity is unclogging the toilet that one time.


Nailed it.

No.

Thanks for playing, though. Jim has some nice parting gifts for you.

Simmer down, sugar balls. The scary lady's gone now. There, there, it'll be all right.

Where the Hell did you get that?  I didn't pick up that tone at all.   This was a light-hearted and silly article about "panties" being a grody word.  Nowhere was there a sanctimonious tone or an attack on men.

Perhaps you're hearing a tone that isn't there, based on your prior experiences with real or imagined women.

She has? Thank God. I thought I could take it, but by the end, I was cowering in the corner (as usual).
I also soiled myself repeatedly.

Dragonflew: Aquapope: Dragonflew: I am only creeped out by the word when used by Piers Anthony.  *shudder*

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!

I used to read his stuff when I was a teen and never realised until later how disgusting he was. His love of fourteen-year-old's panties were all over the Xanth books, one was even named after them.  I won't even get into the willing 5-year-old in Firefly, which disgusted me. I think he's sick. Hopefully he gets it all out of his system in text, and has not harmed anyone.

Oh jesus, I just anagrammed Piers Anthony in my head.  It comes out to "HORNY PANTIES".


Christ, I always thought that was a parody of the schlock Anthony churns out. That it's a real thing makes my brain hurt.

Yeah, Robert Heinlein.

In a letter to Isaac Asimov and referring to Heinlein's novel, The Door into Summer, John Campbell said,  "Bob can write a better story, with one hand tied behind him, than most people in the field can do with both hands. But Jesus, I wish that son of a gun would take that other hand out of his pocket."
