P is for Panties

Why is that word still being used?

It is a horrific word. Think about it.

You can't use it in a sentence without sounding like a pedophile. I promise.

Ladies, do any of you actually use that word? Because I don't know any ladies who do. In fact, all the ladies with whom I am acquainted feel the same way I do.

There are so many alternatives:
knickers
underwear
undies
pants
underpants
or get specific, i.e. thongs, boy shorts, etc.


THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE WORD PANTIES. None. At all.

  1. As a guy I do hate this word, but I can't really use pants when I mean that. When I speak to 'Mericans I try to speak 'Merican and "pants" is your word for trousers. I either say "underwear" or "underpants". Something about the word panties just irks me and doesn't sound right.

  2. I have to confess, ladies panties sounds better to me than ladies underwear.

    Ooh...that sentence does make me feel like a pedophile...I might to rethink this whole question.

  3. Panties=Ick! Definately knickers. I'm going to start using that word and see if anyone know what I''m talking about. Really loving the A to Z, Mich!

  4. I grew up with 'knickers' and I hate the word now! Panties, underwear, or specifics work just fine. Maybe I'm just a pedo.

  5. I'm a knicker person and not a pedo! Nice to meet and connect through the AtoZ challenge.

  6. Lol, I thought you'd have a complaint about another 'P' word that applies to women. That particular word is not pleasant even for me. I don't mind 'panties' so much, but I see your point. The alternatives kinda suck though. Undies...I guess?

  7. I disagree. Panties is my word of choice. I am not a fan of using "knickers" or "underwear". They are panties. But I do see where men would sound like creeps, lol

  8. I fucking hate the term panties.

    I've only ever heard it used in badly-written fanfic and by pervs.

  9. Hmm, let me think. Mine are underwear / undies. The hubby's are "Manties" just because I like to mess with him.

  10. Oh. My. God. The word "panties" has been on my shit list for at least a few decades. It sounds so dirty. I scowl at my husband when he uses it (only to annoy me, really) and then I correct him with the word "underpants". I don't care if they are frilly or cute or whatever. The word panties is gross and it makes my skin crawl. Bleck.
