ATW commentator The Troll brings to our attention a “mantyhose” thing. Someone shoot me in the head before the The Pussification of the Western Male is total.

No, I never did imagine and it’s not April Fool’s Day; a quick google shows that the abomination is real. “The underwear staple for women is making its way into wardrobes of the opposite sex – and the look is gaining popularity” reports the Daily Mail. Not in my house it’s not.

Men, have respect for yourselves. Look at your yourself now. If you’re wearing anything your old grandad wouldn’t have understood then get rid of it.

Reports are that “the mantyhose are most popular with customers from Germany, France, Scandinavia, Canada and the U.S”. It’s some small relief that stout yeomen of England are unaffected, but you can’t be too careful. If you live in a city, move out soon. It’s in such places that these things catch on.

I’m off now to pour acid in my eyes.

  1. I have never seen these in Canada, if I do I may well fall over dead from an over dose of hilarity

  2. Pete,

    If you’re that sensitive about hose then I suggest you keep out of a theatre that’s showing work by a little-known playwright: William Shakespeare 🙂

  3. The next thing will be the new fashion for men to sit when having a pee.

    Were men so psychologically undermined and insecure that they are even prepared to adopt womens’ fashion items to get a litle derisory attention.

    What pathetic days we are living in!

  4. Ernest,

    It’s only a passing fad.

    A mate of mine in Glasgow saw some chaps wearing skirts the other day. Ones with ghastly plaid patterns he said. I can’t see them catching on either, can you? 🙂

  5. Pete,

    Men, have respect for yourselves. Look at your yourself now. If you’re wearing anything your old grandad wouldn’t have understood then get rid of it.

    Honestly now, do you think you’re in any position to dish out fashion advice?! 🙂

  6. Erm … not ‘fashion’ advice, but a man never cares for being fashionable.

  7. Very substantially true.

    Keep to your own style, and don’t follow anyone. And you won’t go far wrong if your style is classic.

  8. But you clearly are following people, unless you believe that men not wearing tights is in the Bible or something!!

  9. Petr Tarasov –

    There’s following people, and then there’s observing the Rules of Man as developed by our wise forebears.

    Beginners, students, metrosexuals, socialists and other unfortunates can take a short cut to grooming and other proper things at The Art of Manliness.

  10. “the Rules of Man as developed by our wise forebears.”

    Look, what country was is that gave the world men in tights?

    You’ve got to be a man to wear tights.

  11. Colm,

    hahah.

    Pete,

    There’s a book called The Invention of Tradition, can’t remember the author. It would really upset you!

  12. It demolishes the myth that there was a perfect moment in the past that we can ‘return’ to, which admitedly is rather easy.

  13. I was right, the commie filth Eric Hobsbawm came up with that absurd fiction.

  14. Colm –

    Most people to the Left of Ron Paul are commies, even if they don’t know it.

    I was right, by the way. They’re so predictable. It takes a terror-worshipping scumbag commie like Eric Hobsbawm to edit something so absurd as “The Invention of Tradition”.

  15. It isn’t an absurd fiction – it’s just obvious common sense. There never was a perfect past anywhere at any time.

  16. I read a book by Eric Hobsbawm once. It was called ‘Interesting Times’ about the 20th Century and it wasn’t at all intelelctual or commie propaganda, just a good and well balanced historical record.

  17. He’s one of the finest historians of the last 100 years or so, that’s what I meant.

  18. Colm –

    Well duh, nothing’s perfect but a title like “The Invention of Tradition” is plainly communist agit-prop.

    In the case of Hobsbawm it’s communist agit-prop from weirdo who never saw a mass murdering tyrant he didn’t love and excuse.

    While nothing’s perfect life would undoubtedly be better if the Hobsbawms of the world were strangled at birth.

  19. Petr – will there be a monument to those murdered by Guevara near that of the ‘great man’? It’s just for fairness and balance.

  20. Colm –

    Yes, I know that.

    And just like “Uncle” Joe, to Hobsbawm humans are just chaff to shove around and snuff out as the need demands:

    On the BBC2’s Late Show in 1994, while being interviewed about the fall of the Berlin Wall, five years earlier, he defended ‘what had to be done’. Interviewer Michael Ignatieff asked: ‘What (your view) comes down to is that, had the radiant tomorrow actually been created, the loss of 15-20million people might have been justified?’

    Hobsbawm’s unhesitating answer was a single word: ‘Yes.’

    Fortunately he’s a decrepit old bastard who’ll soon be in Hell.

  21. …or Galway, like Che.

    Wasn’t it Uncle Ollie who offered the Irish that choice? 🙂

  22. Petr – will there be a monument to those murdered on Guevara’s near that of the ‘great man’? It’s just for fairness and balance.

    And yes, many Cubans are known to have been shot on Guevara’s orders

  23. ” will there be a monument to those murdered on Guevara’s near that of the ‘great man’? ”

    Basically, these things are put up to attract tourists and money to the local shops and pubs.
