Objective jourrrrnalist figures all men are slowly turning gay

If you thought men in tights was a sartorial statement best left to medieval jesters, think again.

No ... thank you.

The underwear staple for women is making its way into wardrobes of the opposite sex - and the look is gaining popularity.

Yeah, look at my face.  You see me?  This is how I look when I think you're making up the facts.

If any were in doubt as to the strength of the trend, it even has its own name: Mantyhose. Italian design house Emilio Cavallini has designed a range of tights that it says are unisex and the styles are being snapped up by men, who make up two to three per cent, or 20- to 30,000 - of the company's customers.

Costing $27, the tights, made from a mix of cotton and nylon, were launched in June 2009, reports WWD.

Speaking to the fashion newspaper, the company's vice president, Francesco Cavallini said: 'When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of tights sized medium-large were being purchased by men.…So I did a search on the Internet and discovered there is a cult following for mantyhose.'

Cult or fad, the trend has gained some momentum of late, with Racked even conducting a poll as to the best name for the dubious new dressing habit. 

New dressing habit?  Or just gay men buying tights ... as per usual ... i.e. "old" dressing habit.

While it was WWD who coined the term 'mantyhose', brosiery' is a clear leader in the survey, ahead of 'guylons', 'he-tards', and 'beau-hose' - a term surely reserved for the most confident men out there. More here:

I love the creativity they use to come up with these name though.


WOW! This time it's real! This is really happening! Not like the last time...s.

March 12, 2010- "There is a groundswell of support for men's skirts this season. As everyone knows..." 

I guess that no matter how many times they try and no matter how much they tell you that "everyone's doing it" and "everyone knows" and "all the cool people have been doing it for months now", it just doesn't seem to catch on. Weird, right? Mysterious and strange.

Oh well, I don't get it. I must be dumb. *hangs head*.

It seems to me that it's an underlying Lib tenet that for equality to exist, men must become women and women must become men. Just look at volvo drivers and you'll see a disturbing trend. Women driving, men in the passenger seat. I'll also mention that they're not only aggressive drivers but also vindictive. Just try to merge in front of one or try to pass one in the left lane and you'll see what I mean. But I digress.

Let me say this for the record. It's normal and good for men to be masculine and normal and good for women to be feminine. Furthermore (and listen really really closely, ladies), WOMEN CAN BE FEMININE AND STILL BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. Stop fighting it. Ellen DeGeneres is a classic example. She can dress as butch as she likes but she's still one of the most feminine celebrities I know (she's also a genuinely nice person but that's beside the point).

All that said, "tights"? Really? Even women hate to wear pantyhose so why would men have any desire to do so? Stop this nonsense, Libs and maybe maybe we'll start taking you more seriously when you want to be taken seriously.

A skirt may not be so bad. It'll give the boys a chance to air out. Just like a Scottish kilt. Tights? I don't know about that.
