A Call For Unity

It’s been kind of an intense week here at Ricochet. We’ve been fighting about fornication. We’ve been hashing it out about chivalry. We’ve been talking about what marriage is and its relationship to the state.

This has led to some disgruntlement among us. The casual conversation has been a bit more heated than normal.

We need unity. We need something we can all agree on.

  1. Maggie Leber

    Somehow meggings do not add to my gruntletude.

  2. RightinChicago

    Meggings are the fashion equivalent of a crime against humanity.

  3. ConservativeWanderer

    Here’s my answer:

  4. SunnyOptimism

    NYC cab…figures, only in NY!!  My sister-in-law works in the fashion industry and meggings are tame by comparison.

    So glad I left NYC years ago!! (coming from a born & bred New Yorker…)

  5. Barkha Herman

    I’ll be the contrarian (surprise!) 

    Meggings + Rapiers = hot!

    I do agree that guy in the picture, not so much.

  6. Thom Williams

    Just like a woman, wanting to keep all the really cool stuff to herself and her sisters.

    If there were ever an issue where bigotry and discrimination ruled the day it would be the violation of men’s right to wear women’s clothes without shame and ostracization.

    Afterall, women get to wear tight sweaters to show off their assets. Men should be able to let their man light shine and garner it’s due admiration under the form fitting and just modest enough miracle of latex fibered clothing.

    And don’t even think about disparaging my manpri pants, oppressor.

  7. Illiniguy

    At the risk of violating the CofC, I think we can safely say that this is a single-generation phenomenon, as I cannot imagine any male wearing this sort of thing being of a persuasion that will ever breed.

  8. Bjarni Olafsson

    I’m sure that some of the ladies wouldn’t mind seeing certain men in leggings (I refuse to use the other term – that perversion of the English language is as big a violation as the article of clothing itself), but I am equally certain that no one would want to see me wearing them.

    Barkha Herman: I’ll be the contraction (surprise!) 

    Meggings + Rapiers = hot!

    I do agree that guy in the picture, not so much.

    Seconded.  Stockings and leggings can be pulled off in the right outfit and the proper context, especially worn underneath knee-length trousers.

    But striped, with no pants, no socks, a and baggy sweater?  I believe the technical word for this is “ewwwww.”

  10. tabula rasa

    I gladly join the anti-megging forces.  I’m with RightinChicago on this one.

    Three exceptions:  male ballet dancers, Robin Hood and his merry men, and certified superheroes.

  11. Edward Smith

    That is a violation of the Geneva Convention.

    The Shadow Proclamation will rush a squad of these guys to make sure that guy puts on some real pants.

    I almost added these caveats, along with it being ok for superheroes and ballet dancers.

  14. The New Clear Option

    That picture brings back my antipathy for John Cusack for some reason.

  15. Hartmann von Aue

    Mrs. Hemingway, please. I just ate breakfast.

  16. FreeWifiDuringSermon

    In the words of my Hebrew non-ancestors, Feh! I call feh on meggings

  17. Trink

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAH !!! THANK YOU FOR THIS.  I REEEEALLLY NEEDED A BREAK FROM THE DOWNERS.  AHAHAHAAHAHAHAAAA!

  18. Crow

    So, it’s finally come to this…..

    Next we’ll be hearing that the manzier (“the bro”) is making a comeback:

    Ahh, I secretly yearn for a pair of grape smugglers when I saunter down and have Juan the barista create a triple mocha cinnamon, frapaccino. Delish.

  20. Johnny Dubya

    Just think what this will do for the codpiece industry.
