NY Times- A young generation of women is discovering a new brand of sexy in the most unlikely of places: their grandmothers’ underwear drawers.
“Within millennial and Generation Y consumer groups, it’s considered cool to be wearing full-bottom underwear,” said Bernadette Kissane, an apparel analyst at the market intelligence firm Euromonitor. “Thongs have had their moment.”
Data provided by the research company NPD Group back her up. Sales of thongs decreased 7 percent over the last year, while sales of fuller styles — briefs, boy shorts and high-waist briefs — have grown a collective 17 percent.
“I think there’s a widespread misconception that men are into pearl thong, lace contraptions,” said Ms. Javitch of Ten Undies. “To be honest, men are into girls in T-shirts and white underwear.”
“Most women just want something basic for every day that will make them look and feel good,” she said.
Such a feminist move that you almost have to respect it. You may hate feminists for have obnoxious they are and how often they perpetuate fabrications, but you can't say they are stupid. Look at them out out there confusing all their fellow females with a bunch of numbers and math. Of course they were just going to give up and agree. Women are fantastic at letting other people tell them what is fashionable. Oh look ladies, thong sales are down 7% that must mean that saggy ass drawers are sexy! How about that ass backwards correlation? You want to know why thong sales are down? Because the feminist cult is growing. Not growing by a lot. When you take into account the increasing number of women that aren't wearing underwear at all 7% is pretty petty. However slowly, but surely the women that claim everything has sexist overtones are shaping some of the young, naive minds of our youth.
Consider the President's approval rating. Generally speaking there are people that support the President and people that don't support the President. Radical Democrats and radical Republicans. If those two sides are so staunch in their beliefs how come the approval rating changes so much on a year to year basis? It's not like the fulcrum of his campaign has changed. It's not like his fundamental aspects and ideas have been compromised. The reason the approval rating changes is because the people that don't have an opinion start to get influenced by those that they associate with. Read enough anti-Obama propaganda and you'll start to believe that he is the worst President to ever get elected. Same thing with these feminists. It's not that thong wearers are suddenly no longer wearing thongs. It's that the non-thong wearers are so outspoken about their beliefs. The male version of sexy hasn't changed. Hell, the female version of sexy hasn't changed. I know that because writing one biased article about something doesn't make it true. If that were the case women would really be out there fucking guys with Dad-bods. However, if you have a bunch of sexually inhibited feminists screaming loud enough then inevitably some people are going to listen.
Oh well, do you ladies. Just don't be surprised when men aren't chomping at the bit to buy you a beer when they can see the underwear outline in your jeans. I think I speak for us all when I say we aren't all that concerned about the underwear game being flipped on it's head. Chances are that 7% wasn't our target demographic anyway.
