The Blonde has decreed in no uncertain terms, thongs are about the most uncomfortable undies imaginable.

Notice the three men leading the women from behind in the photo.

I am glad Ms. Marcotte has finally found a field of inquiry to which she is better suited.

Lol i can't stop laughing when it said, "It's not like flies or ants are going to get in there if you don't seal it off tightly."

Maguro said...

Amanda is shocked - shocked, I tell you - that some women would rather look good than be comfortable.

Lucien said...

If only Bill Gates could put up some money for a seminal contribution to solve this problem!

Freeman Hunt said...

Same as Sim.

Patrick said...

Oh for god's sake.

Jeez, these women might actually enjoy them, god forbid.Or worse, men may find them attractive while they are exercising. Worse still, the women may enjoy that the men find them attractive!

A feminist's work is never done.

If this were a Ford ad, there would be an international apology.

"It's not like flies or ants are going to get in there if you don't seal it off tightly."

I agree - funny and, oh, so true.

What kind of sexualized hell are these poor women living in that they can't even give up porn-compliant underwear in order to keep their bodies lean and toned for future thong-wearing situations?

I got this far before remembering how I hate Marcotte far more than my religion allows me to hate anyone, and clicked away.

Fuck off, Scoldy McBossypants.

(And I've never owned a thong nor done yoga in my life. Not the point.)

Inga said...

I agree with her, don't wear any to Yoga.

A gnoth on the other hand is cultist of knowing stuff.

I have to remember Dennis the Peasant, who's take-downs of Amanda are/where legendary. She is an idiot, and deserves whatever approbation is thrown her way.

madAsHell said...

The pants were see-through?...and they didn't notice when the overpaid for them??

This isn't a recall. It's a publicity stunt.

Many women love to show that stuff off. Unfortunately, only a few can pull it off successfully, but I encourage all women to keep trying.....cuz I always look!!

I wear a thong for yoga. They are comfortable because they don't bunch up when you bend. I see women who aren't wearing thongs and their underpantspants bunch up and they end up with vpl and it looks like they have four buttcheeks. To me, that isn't comfortable and isn't conducive to athletic activity.

Amanda's problem is she can't get sex out of her mind when she thinks about women wearing thongs. She assumes women don't have the brains to think for themselves about their own comfort.

MayBee said...

MadAsHell- it isn't a publicity stunt. There are lots of brands of yoga pants that are too sheer, and lots of women wearing them. Lululemon got to be a successful brand specifically because their pants weren't too sheer, and there is a huge market for that.

a lady friend of mine described thongs as butt floss--seems to me if you don't want panty lines simply go commando

madAsHell said...

You mean....they can't bunch up anymore than they already are??

bearing said...

I'm wondering about the term "yuppie housewives." Isn't that kind of oxymoronic? Sounds like she just decided to combine two words she likes to sneer at.

MayBee said...

Enough, they aren't bunched. With proper fit and the right fabric, they are just ..there. Bigger underwear bunch because there's enough fabric to cover the cheeks all stuffed between them..

Marcotte and other militant feminists seem to presume choices other than theirs are driven by a need to appeal to men, usually expressed in the most demeaning way possible. You'd think those lecturing women not to be so judgemental about women's choices wouldn't do this. But it seems a universal rule of poltical activism that one's standards must never be applied to oneself.

I've heard several women claim thongs are more comfortable than alternatives including from my sister who formerly mocked them as butt floss. I'm pretty sure she wasn't lying as an act of flirtation, some women really do find them confortable. It's revealing that Marcotte rants about people criticizing sexual activities but feels perfectly comfotable mocking underwear selection. Do we get to mock her as a puritan sexophobe?
