Hairy tights definitely do not make the cut (wa, wa, waaaaa!)

It’s nothing new, but these hairy leg tight went viral last year in China. The idea is that by wearing these “anti-pervert tights” you will ward off unwanted attention and possible rapists.

What a load of BS. Most rapists are people the victim knows, and the lurking-in -the-bushes types are hardly going to check your leg hair.

And what, you go out all dressed up looking nice and then pop a pair of these on to ward off cat-calling? And totally ruin your look?!

Mainly, I totally disagree with the underlying message of these tights (or are they actually LEGGINGS?): that women have to dress “un-attractively” to avoid being harassed. It’s the same line of thinking that says a women deserves to be harassed/raped is she wears something attractive/sexy. Basically blames the victim for what happens to them.

Ridiculous. I love that Cosmo agrees with me *smug grin*.

As a final note, what’s wrong with hair anyway? I love the trend at the mo’ to dye armpit hair. It rocks!

  1. Bloody Nora! I wouldn’t be seen dead in these. Not so sure about the armpit hair dye either.
    And you’re right, it shouldn’t be incumbent on people to control what each person ought to control within themselves.

    1. Lol, they are pretty ugly aren’t they! Or cute and furry, depending on your eye 😉 Personally I do remove pit hair, but I’m fascinate and empowered by these lasses turning the tables on the status quo. Anything that rocks the boat! Hehe.
