And this is what we get from the feminist movement. Seems like you either have the men hating feminists or the exhibitionist I use sex for my own empowerment feminists. No more arguing that men think of women only as sexual objects if they're going to pull these kinds of stunts... telling us not to think of you as a sexual object as you prance around in your underwear... it's not fair man!

This post would be a lot more popular if you worked in the phrase "Panty Party Pix".

er, if you want to "expose Bush", why are you buying panties? :-)

The Gate article is very telling. These are very bored, Establishment women who want to feel like they're rebelling. They're proud enough of their status in their professions that they have to work it into the conversation: "I'm a college professor..." and "when I have to go into my corporate job as a photo editor..." But they feel like they're sticking it to the man by wearing underpants with a message. Ooh, how dangerous!

Ladies, you're not being subversive. You're whores in the most literal sense-- plying a trade for money and status to further "The System" while pretending to abhor it. Before you printed a message on your panties, you let corporate America get a big spooge stain on 'em and it'll stink no matter how much you wash them in fake subversiveness.

If anyone else needs a metaphor, let me know.

And where are the panties that say, "No more Dick."

I'm surprised I haven't seen this one there:

"Fuck Bush"

"Don't let Bush pull your string"

God, the inanity and vacantness of this ...

I think ColdChef has a future in the novelty lingerie market.

We once had an Over the Line team named, "Show Men da Fur." (I didn't get it at first, either.)

Over 100 fabulous women will assemble at 2:30pm wearing protest panties and boy beaters under signature flashing trench coats.

Great, cockteases for peace.

Wouldn't that just enrage those men with phallic anxiety in Washington into ejaculating more death into world.

Then we're all fucked.

If Bush wins, are these panties then considered a wardrobe malfunctions ?

"'There is something so liberating and exciting about it, you've got to try it out," she said recently as she fidgeted, fully clothed, on the couch in her friend Tasha's Manhattan apartment. "I was teaching a class on imperialism, " she continued, "and I was delivering all this material that was kind of new and upsetting, and everyone was getting all worked up and upset, and I was getting all worked up and upset, and all of a sudden, all I wanted to do was flash my underwear! It was crazy," she said with a throaty giggle."

This woman needs to get a power tool and some D cell batteries.

Hey, how about a NSFW on this, huh? Poor dfowler just got fired all over again.

How offensive and stupid. How do these women expect respect of any sort? Here it is that most of us women-of all political persuasions-wish to be treated with respect for our political ideas, and these women act like Playboy dingbats. Actually I think a Playboy bunny would act with more dignity than that. Way to set the women's movement back, girls.

Well in one way this is what it is all about. It may be a bit idiotic in-of-itself but the ability to do this shows just how far women's liberation has come. There is a point where we have to separate out the individuals from the whole. ALL women libbers are not man haters, or exhibitionists, or... (theoretical question, could a neoNazi be a feminist?) Doesn't really bother me one way or another. Remain calm - Burn everything

I know that referring to grown women as 'girls' really moves us forward, too!

This has really (really) faint echoes of Lysistrata, except not so much. Sillier.

silly undies against neo-fundies?

It's goofy, and therefore fun, and kind of funny - but dressing it up in academic robes (hiding their bushel under a light?) is just funny in the bad way. Can't they simply be silly and sassy without pretending that it's deeply significant? I would like to see the guys' version of the same thing, though. Maybe, "Cock the Vote", or "Dem. Bones", or "I Don't Engorge for Those Who Like George"? Or how about "Whitey Tighties against Righty Whiteys"!

But, eh, what do I know? My panties say "Thursday".
