Can't we compromise and say that boxer briefs is the way to go?
In the arc of transforming into communism it is crucial to erase the family, erase the importance of children (that's why the left's most important issue is abortion) and erase the differences between the sexes. Once you completely emasculate men, who's left to fight? Men are supposed to protect women and the family, men are at their finest when rushing into burning buildings or WTCs sure to collapse. How noble, how life affirming. But men are dangerous when they're like this so it's critical for Big Brother to convince them that mantyhose are good. What's next? Tampons? Manpons, yeah, that'll do.
Your poll omits a major demographic in the undergarment world: Vaso-Wear [tm].
Don't leave home without them...
---ick---No can do. I DO NOT want to speculate on what kind of underpants our candidates are wearing.
There are two point I'd like to make here:
#1. Fashions change; at one time (such as during the Revolutionary War I believe, although I am willing to be corrected) tight stockings, worn under knee breeches, were fashionable male apparel.
#2: Many men, particularly those working outside, wear women's pantyhose/tights as a matter of routine - simply because they are a good way of keeping warm, and they are cheaper than long underwear and are less confining of movement.
Clothes do not a man make - or unmake.
I differently prefer boxer briefs to boxers, which are too lose, or brief, which are too short. Boxer briefs are definitely at happy median. And I believe fit men look great in them.
