Pretty Pigeon Pageant

This attractive pigeon was a contestant at the National Pigeon Show, where the National Pigeon Association proved that the creatures are more than rats with wings. I wonder how many hours she spent curling her feathers. Probably a lot. Anyhow, my point being, pigeons have every right to get glammed up and strut their stuff. It seems like a great way for a pigeon to build self-esteem while developing the grace and poise that will take her far in life. I totally support pigeon pageants as long as they are not full glitz. A pigeon with a flipper and a spray tan? That’s just taking it too far. [The Gothamist] Keep reading »

Do A Man’s Exposed Ankles Excite You?

Now that the temperature has finally begun to warm up, more men seem to be cuffing their pants. This gives them the opportunity to show off their shoes and gives the overall look a more casual feel. But cuffed pants also expose the ankles, an area of a man’s leg we usually only see if he is wearing shorts. In eras past, the sight of a woman’s ankle gave men a stir. Are you having a similar experience now that cuffed pants for men are the norm? Are you for or against men cuffing their pants? Keep reading »

Abstinence Panties Will Be Very Effective At Stopping Horny Teenagers

Forget about comprehensive sex ed. The best way to keep girls off “16 & Pregnant” is with pro-abstinence panties and T-shirts bearing slogans like “Zip It,” “Not Tonight” and “Dream On” sold on a site called What Would Your Mother Do?. According to WWYMD:

We created a line of underwear to use as conversation starters to help reinforce family morals as they relate to relationships and dating. One part Victorian, three parts frisky, these adorable undies put new meaning to saying it loud and proud.”

At last someone has realized that the first thing teen boys do after taking off a girl’s pants is read the slogan on her underwear. [What Would Your Mother Do? via Ms. Magazine] Keep reading »

Fashion Flashback: Suffragette Style

Check out this dance troupe striking a pose at a women’s suffrage ball sometime around 1910. With all the recent attacks on women’s rights, this photo makes me want to round up my most politically active girlfriends, sew ourselves some matching outfits, and choreograph a subversive dance dedicated to John Boehner.

Model Marquita Pring Prefers Curvy To Plus-Size, Thank You Very Much

“I think the term ‘plus size’ has a negative connotation. Personally, I wouldn’t even refer to a woman who’s a size 26 as ‘plus size.’ I find it interesting that if ever I do refer to myself as ‘plus size’ when describing what I do for a living people always have the same reaction. ‘WHAT!?! OH MY GOODNESS I WOULD NEVER CONSIDER YOU PLUS SIZE!!!’ And I always agree with them. I’m proud to set an example for women of all sizes as a bigger curvier model, and I’m so thankful to get letters from women of all sizes thanking me for promoting a more realistic healthy image. As for the word ‘curvy,’ I see nothing wrong with it. I don’t need to stress it as my title but I am a curvy, voluptuous, sexy woman and I think the word “curvy” relays a much more positive image. You can be a size 4 or 14 and be considered ‘curvy.’”

Boxer Jeans Are The New WTF Underwear For Men

Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.

However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »
