Blurring the lines and bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase 'men's undies

Early Saturday morning water burst from my kitchen and living room ceilings. Apparently, my upstairs neighbor got a portable washing machine and was still working out the kinks on how to use it - such as turning off the machine when the kitchen sink overflows. This is the second time my flat has been flooded in a week.

Subsequently, I have been without all kinds of modern conveniences waiting for the wiring to dry out in the walls but imagine my surprise when I realized just how far out of touch I have been…first it was a Japanese company producing a line of bras for men. Now, I discover there is an American company producing nylons, stay ups and garter belts just for men. Comfilon:

Versatility in summertime! Our trademark Microfabric™ material is ideal for warmer weather. With 5 colors from which to choose, you can’t go wrong! Order them in a skin-matching color for an invisible cool barefoot or bare leg look or in a contrasting color for a sheer socks look. This silky style of male stockings provides a medium level of compression, effectively massaging and energizing your legs all day. The fabric of these men's thigh highs is soft and luxurious, providing superb comfort and great durability.

Will there ever be another generation of young women who will not cringe when someone asks – what does a Scotsman wear under his kilt?

I suppose that is just another rule to add to my dating rules series – thou shall not date men a) who have longer hair than you, b) who wear the same bra-size, or c) who wear the same sized stay-ups.

Snoopy - you'll have to barf -think of the hand our poor daughters have been dealt. You couldn't pay me enough to be a young woman again.

My eyes! My eyes!
I must be old fashioned.
There's a difference between burning bras and men in garters.
So this is what feminism brought us.
Was it worth it?

Holy cow! And good grief. And oh dear. I am so glad I'm not young any more.

Kateland, aka TZH said...

Beachnut, I don't think I would blame this one on Feminism, maybe the sexual revolution.

Namastenancy - I'm with you on this one.

Um. Ew.

I blame the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

One more reason to hate Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon.
