NotARocketScientist: Having a sexual reference in a non-sexual situation is what makes the word creepy.
johnny queso: being guys we will likely sexualize any word that is used because we will automatically think about what they are covering.
WhippingBoy: I think if you find the word "panties" creepy, it says a lot about you...
BarkingUnicorn: Lochsteppe: 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.Not any more...[i1-news.softpedia-static.com image 450x513]
AcesFull: BarkingUnicorn: 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. it doesnt work well at Arby's...
WhippingBoy: Dragonflew: 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."[i160.photobucket.com image 700x493]Yes, because when a worse problem is found, all other lesser problems are automatically voided. Your anger at this trivial issue is a problem - but it does not even matter, because there is something worse. Those two starving kids? They don't matter at all, because there are three starving kids elsewhere, right?I farking hate this attitude.In a lot of cases, I agree with you. Just because you can point to someone who has it worse than you, doesn't mean your problems aren't real and important.However, this is not one of those cases.This is one of the most juvenile, asinine, over-priveleged, ridiculous things I've ever read. Please spare us your manufactured outrage, and kindly go fornicate yourself.The children are right to mock you, Ralph.
nmemkha: 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.
Elmo Jones: I thought "squirrel covers" was from Silence of the Lambs. I could be wrong, because I'm often drunk, and always tired. In any case, I'm leaving satisfied.
ArkAngel: The only film I can recall offhand hearing it in was Copycat, with Sigourney Weaver
BumpInTheNight: [i.qkme.me image 400x600]Hey, its remotely related and we know where this thread is heading any ways.
AcesFull: BarkingUnicorn: Real Women Drink Akvavit: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. it doesnt work well at Arby's...
Lernaeus: 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 sniffing "panties".
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.
Clemkadidlefark: I can't believe I agree with the author in the Bull(cough) Atlantic.I hate the word "panty". So effing juvenile sounding.
*pantasi, from Greek phantasioun, to form images, from phantasi, appearance; see fantasy.]pant adv.pant 2 (pn.1. Trousers. Often used in the plural.
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.
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.
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.
fknra: (people are way to serious, quit worrying about words and enjoy life)there is entirely too much rational disscussion going on in here.let me help you fix that[25.media.tumblr.com image 500x500][24.media.tumblr.com image 487x750][25.media.tumblr.com image 480x720]
Oh_Enough_Already: Maynotlast: The uglier the woman the more she hates the word "panties."Generally speaking this is correct, but the author is quite young and hot with a great rack barely kept in check by her lacy bra, AKA "boob panties."
NotARocketScientist: 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.
