Pants: innocent leg covering or tool of repression?

Before you get the wrong idea, I don't hate pants to be obscene (even though I am a big fan of obcenity in general) I just hate pants. I rather like underwear, I almost enjoy shorts. Pants piss me off. Not to be confused with pissing my pants, which only happens rarely now. I don't have a solution, just a complaint and I think that's enough

Down with pants!!! Who's with me??

While I'm all for casting off the oppressive yolk of Pants, I still think we need to keep the close relatives of pants around. These include:

Pantaloons
Tights
Kaftans
Potato Sacks
etc.

I also find pants contricting upon my legs, although they do serve me well in the winter. Could I down with my pants only in the summer or is this a permanent thing?

they allow me to change the color of my lower extremities.. which is sorta good.

However, I would not complain if we were to do away with them - as long as we do away with shirts at the same time. Wearing a shirt without pants is just plain tacky.

I enjoy pants in the winter. During the summer I hate them.

I hate sweatpants though. They should be nuked. Pile 'em all up and send them away to Alpha Centauri or something. With a timed nuclear bomb on them. Ugh they are so grungy and disgusting.

You've just got to find a pair that fit like butter.

You will know when you find them because chicks will instantly have sex with you the second you put them on.

Phaenx;

That seems slightly unworkable to me... perhaps you meant "You will know when you find them because chicks will instantly have sex with you the second you take them off"?

Anyway, I'm firmly in the "down with pants" crowd. If it's too cold for you in the winter, you're living in the wrong places. =)

Well, I like pants, but I think there ought to be other options. Imagine if it were socially aceptable for guys to wear skirts too. I'm sure it'd be pretty comfortable.

Maybe Brad Pitt's prediction that it will become fashionable because of "Troy" will come true. (Although I highly doubt it )

I think not. No, it will be left up to the little guys like you and me.
That is why I'm in favor of pants.


And chicks look hot in tight faded blue jeans.

Edit (after giving it serious thought):

There's no law forbidding you from wearing skirts or dresses. As long as you're man enough to stand up to the millions and millions of people who will mock and ridicule you incessantly, go for it!

Pants are fine, shorts are good as long as they're not too short (unless she's got the figure for it).

Why not just expand the repertoire? Let men wear skirts and dresses if they want. Heck, let everyone wear togas, especially if they're orating.

Just let everyone dress as their favourite movie character every day, it'd be like one continuous costume party. Wear a tuxedo to work day! Wear Edwardian finery to work day! Ride your motorbike dressed as a roman legionnaire! Wear that yellow suit from Kill Bill to work day! Why limit ourselves - this is meant to be an age of eclecticism.

I like pants. In fact, I only own one pair of shorts and I pretty much never wear them.

Better yet, a female with a great body looks better in some super tight jeans than just about any other form of clothing, especially if said pants are lacking back pockets.

Jeans are where it is at. I haven't worn a piece of clothing greater than jeans (with the exception of maybe the t-shirt). Destroy all pants if you want, but leave the jeans.

Though in winter we don't have much choice. Or do we? Throw a kilt on with a pair of long johns. It's a new fashion statement!

Ha, cool. I never liked wearing pants in High SChool (ie longer shorts, i guess ) cause they limited my maneuverbility (sp?) whilst playting basketball.

I have been grappling with the shirts vs pants debate. I think I'm going to start wrapping myself in pelts and rope for the winter. and in the summer leather loin cloth all the way. Maybe a vest for formal occasions. Then the love will come by the dumptruck load. Thus compromising the grip of pants on my self. If I need to change the colour of my lower extremities, there is paint, and gangrene. Just a thought

Damn straight. Damn straight. Pants can be your friends!

Although I fully support girls wearing tight pants, I would prefer not to. So down with my pants, and my pants alone!

How can you people be talking about pants at a time like this? Socks go missing on a daily basis. Bras get tangled up with shirt sleeves in the wash. Buttons pop off shirts and disappear. Hats get those nasty salt rings on them. Clothing in general is in a state of dire emergency and all we can talk about is pants?

Where is your decency?
