Ladies … hate pantyhose? Refuse to wear them? Here’s your chance to state for the record why. Please take our poll at the bottom of this post.
Last year, I wrote the post Why Bears don’t wear Pantyhose, in which I rebuked the few lame excuses women typically give for not wearing pantyhose today.
The headline was my way of poking fun at myself for mistakenly using the wrong word in that post’s attached poll: Today’s Bear Legs Culture, as obviously, I meant “bare.” (By the way, the No. 1 answer by far was “Can’t die a horrible death soon enough,” but then, I am sure it was mostly men who voted.)
Still, I can’t fathom why so many women are against pantyhose. I suspect the biggest reason is just that this “bare legs” trend created in Hollywood gives them an excuse not to wear pantyhose. They’re jumping on the bandwagon. Oh, I’m sure there are those who are much more militant about it, but I think if pantyhose weren’t considered “not in vogue” today, women would be wearing, as they always have.
I was going to write a sequel to Why Bears don’t wear Pantyhose, but I decided that rather than guessing their reasons, I want to hear what they really are from real, live women today. ( Then, armed with their legitimate reasons, I’ll write Why Bears don’t wear Pantyhose II, and completely tear apart their ridiculous excuses.)
So here it is – The ultimate pantyhose poll. It gives any woman who wants to participate, the opportunity to vote on why she would choose to wear or to not wear pantyhose. I’ve offered the possible reasons, but there’s also a place to write in other answers, and I would encourage women to do that if my choices don’t reflect their true and accurate reasons.
Please Note: For this to work, it must be handled with the utmost integrity, so puh-leeeeeease . . . ladies only. Guys, please do not cast a vote. (Feel free to comment on this post, just please don’t vote on the poll.) The idea here is to gather real usable data. Hard evidence. I want to know the real reasons why women shun the wearing of pantyhose today.
