Isn't it about time...

Asked by winblowzxp (488points) August 3rd, 2008

…that we men burn our jock straps in the town square and say with one voice, “We shall no longer be confined to pants”?

Do you think it’s time, winblow?

spoken by a true visionary.

No, but I do think it’s about time for you to ask actual questions.

I know I should, but I’m scared.

tinyfaery's avatar

I’m not a guy, but I vote NO!

What the hell is a jock strap? I’m butt ass naked as I type this. That makes me hungry.

@lovelocke: man, you’re freakin’ me out!

AstroChuck's avatar

It’s this long piece of leather that you beat athletes with.

goin’ commando…

It would be more than women ever did….

(Women burning their bras in protest is a myth, it was just a phrase used by the newspapers)

Lovelocke's avatar

There is footage of bra burning in the national archives…

winblowzxp's avatar

The ‘big’ incident may not have happened as it’s thought, but there were instances of bra burning in other parts of the country.

Two answers here:

1). In the early 70’s we did burn bras probably due to the phrase used in the newspaper. We thought it was radical and we were protesting. ERA, ERA! Or something…who remembers. Plus, my bra was probably a 30 AA…what kind of protest can you make with a bra that size?

2.) I am all for men without pants. In sales I am kinda of known as a ball-buster. This would make it quite a bit easier…

I looked at the question and thought the description was going to be ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’...

winblowzxp's avatar

Aren’t you glad it wasn’t?

shrubbery's avatar

Nah a little disappointed really :P

winblowzxp's avatar

Awww…you’re no fun! ;)

SuperMouse's avatar

If this is a protest against pants, shouldn’t you burn the actual pants rather than jock straps?

winblowzxp's avatar

Jock straps are cheaper. Why did women ‘burn their bras’ because they were tired of only having skirts to choose from?

cheebdragon's avatar

Why anyone would want to burn something in protest is beyond me, unless it’s a protest against the earth and the ozone layer…......

loser's avatar

Burning jockstraps would probably hurt the ozone layer…

winblowzxp's avatar

If that were the case, we’d just burn nuclear waste.

SuperMouse's avatar

But how would nuclear waste fit into a protest about men being forced to wear pants? This thread just gets more and more confusing.

jlm11f's avatar

What else do you want to wear besides pants?

winblowzxp's avatar

I want to be Scots and not get laughed at for it.

SuperMouse's avatar

So you are going to go for kilts, gotcha.

winblowzxp's avatar

You bet! Other guys still see kilts as skirts, and they point and laugh.

cheebdragon's avatar

Ohh…....you want to wear skirts….hmm, well that explains a lot.

who says you can’t wear a kilt? Jonathan Davis from Korn rocks a kilt and it works for him..

winblowzxp's avatar

Explains what?

jlm11f's avatar

your friends might laugh the first..and second…and third time, but after that they will just get used to it. so you should just start wearing them.

winblowzxp's avatar

Maybe, but wool during the Texas summer…? Hell, it was 107 yesterday, and is going to be 105 by the end of the day today.

tinyfaery's avatar

I find men in kilts quite sexy.

winblowzxp's avatar

It gets hot down there, and there’s nothing worse than having sweat run down your leg…

cheebdragon's avatar

So then you don’t want to wear a kilt in the summer….

SuperMouse's avatar

Or you could wear a kilt made out of a gauzy fabric or seersucker. There’s a statement for you.

jlm11f's avatar

here are some cotton kilts to help with the summer problem.

cheebdragon's avatar

Move to Bakersfield….problem solved!

winblowzxp's avatar

I will not live in California. Period.

tinyfaery's avatar

Well, with that attitude I’m certainly glad for that. :)

SuperMouse's avatar

As a Californian myself I would have to say, I’m not sure they’d have ya anyway! Not if you are going to start a jock strap bonfire!

tinyfaery's avatar

Yeah! You tell him supernut.

cheebdragon's avatar

if you would rather live in Texas than California, your friends have every right to be laughing at you…...

stratman37's avatar

I once wore a skirt to work in protest of the heat – I loved it! Social mores be damned.

winblowzxp's avatar

That’s the way to do it! The heat is my motivation.

SuperMouse's avatar

@win, toss the jockstrap in the trash, being sure to keep your underwear, put on a nice cotton kilt, (thanks PnL) and call it a day. You will have made your own personal statement against men constantly being held down by the Man, the ozone layer will be safe, and we will all be spared any unfortunate kilt mishaps.

winblowzxp's avatar

Sounds like fun…
