Uhhhh, I gotta go mow the lawn.

Well, clearly we can see what you have to do to get to the top of this contest.

Go mow the lawn... I know what I'll be doing! There's one guy in particular whose body is amazing, strangely he's coming about 8th... I guess what appeals to a straight girl isn't the same as a gay male, which is Dan Savage's target market, so I gather... And from the look of the competition, I'd say he's off the market. Shame really.

good old Gay-Fi.
where a site venerating females in cotton panties would likely be castigated as demeaning, pedophilic and simply below the bar.

quonsar: not for nothing is MeFi a.k.a. BoyZone.

Do you even know what pedophilic means?
Your prejudices are showing...

for quonsar only...

The only guy to get a pass for wearing tightie whities would be Tom Cruise in Risky Business.

yes, i know what pedophilic is. women wearing little girls cotton panties strikes me as no less pedophilic than men wearing little boy fruit of the looms. your bias is showing.

this isn't tom cruise in risky business. this is a display for tittilative purposes. your bias is showing.

you forgot to address 'demeaning' and 'below the bar'. i suppose those terms make me a REAL bigot.

Listen, q: it's you that associates tighty-whiteys with "little boy fruit of the looms" - most pants are determined by waist size as to whether they are for boys (say, up to 28"?) or men, not colour.
1. Why do shops sell T-W's in sizes for men?
2. Lots of women I know choose to wear white panties - what does that say about them? They all shave their legs and pits, too...whereas none of the men in the pics linked or that I know (straight or gay) do.

Seriously, is it not you that has this down as more than a bit of fun? (you may have a point on the 'demeaning'/ below the bar - my mind isn't made up on flaccid pr0n like this...

hmmm...sorry...I thought you meant you liked panties. :)

member: titillated password: titillated (warning: nakedness)

I mentioned Tom Cruise because it surprised me when I found his appearance in the tight whites to be titillating, that's why I give him a pass because usually whenever I see a guy in the whites I can only think one thing: mama's boy.

jubey, i agree #8, maybe his target market are just freakos ;)

I wasn't aware that briefs = little boys. Nor was I aware that white cotton panties = little girls.

This is shocking news becuase I wear both (not at the same time).

yep, no matter how hot the guy is, those teeny tighty whiteys make me laugh and wonder if his mommy bought them for him.

hmm. there's a lot of pics with the men's eyes blocked out, or their faces out of the shot... i sure hope these guys were told in advance their pics would be online.

yea, whenever i see girls in x kind of bra i always think, "god, why the hell aren't they wearing the kind of bra i think i would like if i were a girl!" because really, i'd imagine if i were a girl, which i'm not, i would totally not want to be wearing that kind of bra! those girls that wear that clearly don't know what they're doing!

Us fascist queers are really takin' over the place, eh quonsar?

Nothing makes boys look hotter than a pair of tighty whities, preferably Hanes or Fruit of the Loom, which lend an egalitarian, blue collar sort of aura to the wearer (2xist underwear ARE NOT acceptable). I have to disagree with the guy in the number one slot; he's way to porno looking. I like the lanky regular guys that seem to be trailing the porn/Chelsea boys.

I wasn't aware that briefs = little boys.

Y'know, some kind of Boxer Rebellion took place in the late 80s, early 90s. When *I* was a kid, the only boys/men who wore boxers were ... uh, delinquent would probably be the most polite term to use. Everyone else ... tighty whities, though the less-immature-sounding-to-males-but-very-amusing-to-females term we used back then was "ballhuggers".

Of course, there's always the best of both worlds.

Geez, why can't you guys just profess a love of pancakes or something?
posted by adampsyche at 12:03 PM on July 28, 2002


I too was never informed of the Boxer Rebellion. Madison Avenue missed a few houses, it looks like.

I wear what's most comfortable for me. The preferences of people who will never see me in my underwear (and anyone who'd draw conclusions about me based on my underwear definitely falls into this category) do not really enter into my decision.

good old Gay-Fi.

What does that mean?

where a site venerating females in cotton panties would likely be castigated as demeaning, pedophilic and simply below the bar.

Who's being "demeaned" here? The boyfriends (of women and men, btw) who signed release forms allowing their pictures to appear in the contest? That makes no sense. Neither does the pedophilia charge, even if Savage initially asked for photos of only "slim, boyish, hairless" guys. As for the "below the bar" comment, well, on that I'll agree. This is the dumbest, snidest thing Savage has done in a while. The last thing he needs is encouragement for this junk.
