Gerbe, a French pantyhose-maker, has announced its latest line of men's tights and pantyhose. Can you think of anything less sexy than hairy legs encased in sheer nude nylon? (Well yes, I can, but I try not to mention baby poop more than once a month on this blog.) It's horrible enough when women do it, but then that is our sacred right, owing to some complex equation involving tradeoffs between the existence of Daisy razors and facial hair.
However, my objection to this product is more than just aesthetic: it had been my impression that the two best things about being a man were:
- able to pee standing up
- never have to wear nylons
