New Frontier In Wasteful Spending…


Faux Foreskin still tops our list of ridiculous male accessories, but “mantyhose” definitely place in the top five. Plus, they’re hideous!

To those of you who spent money on these frivolous pieces of scrap: stop.

      I like the look. You too can be a Maori warrior (without any nasty needles).

      OK, women have been fleeing from pantyhose and now some idiot guys want to wear them? Why? Hello! Learn something from your sisters who think of pantyhose as torture devices!

      I’m worried about the queerty.com blog. It seems updated with preprogrammed crap a lot (men’s pantyhose?) and many important events/trends are overlooked. The number of comments seems to be dwindling with only a few diehard crazies still bothering to share their views. Towleroad.com on the hand seems to be flourishing with engaging, albeit sometimes outdated, postings and a large number of commentators.

      Is the Queerty.com blog being prepared for decommissioning?

      Does anyone know what’s going on?

      I don’t like the idea of towleroad.com being the only game in town.

      I’m all for breaking out of today’s fashion. For instance, it seems to me that men have very little choice when it comes to articles of clothing, while women have a lot of choice. Men get to wear shorts or pants and maybe the occasional kilt while women get to choose shorts, pants, skirts, dresses, skorts, culottes, etc.

      But pantyhose for men? This is the best we can do?

      If you’re gonna cross-dress, at least have the balls to go the whole way…

      Right. Because leggings are for girls, not for men. Just a fact. Leggings are feminine. Men shouldn’t wear any kind of leggings. It’s inconceivable that a man could ever look good in leggings, regardless of the design or the particular man’s shape, or the rest of his outfit. Oh, wait, outfits are for girls, too. Men don’t wear outfits. Men just wear clothes, and suits, and uniforms, etc. Oh, and while you’re at it, why don’t you forbid men from wearing color? Color is feminine. Men only look good in drab clothes.

      the phrase “fucking stupid” comes to mind…in regard to both the “mantyhose” and the vapid fashion victims that will surely buy them.

      There’s some comments on the mantyhose website about promoting health and preventing varicose veins and crap like that. Now, I’ve worked in a hospital before, and many patients would wear a type of support hose to help with their circulation. However, the material was VERY different from the material used in pantyhose. Let’s add to that the fact that I see more varicose veins on the legs of women, rather then men. So, I’m calling shenanigans on these folks. You wanna wear panyhose, fine. But don’t try and make it seem like you’re doing it

      Wow. How about that.
      Narrow minded men and the narrowest minds of all. Women. And they all have an opinion on what is so wrong with men wanting to try something new. Oh it’s uncomfortable, it’s only for women, you must be queer.
      I’ve been wearing for 20 years. I find them comfortable. You women will find them comfortable if you wore the right size. One size does NOT fit all. They are in bigger sizes. Even queen.
      Yes they keep me warm. I never see snow so i don’t need long johns. They even make nice casual wear. The light compression makes sitting at a desk all day more comfortable regardless of what our medical expert(?)said.
      I’m married. have been for 20m years. Both my wife and i love our pantyhose. Open your mind and realise it’s time men had the freedom to do something new just like women have done. Or are you afraid we may look better in them than you. Thought so.
