Horrifying 'Hairy Leg' Stockings Try to Stop Perverts -- but Who Would Wear Them? (VIDEO)

OMG 13

hairy legsA pair of INSANE Chinese stockings designed to guard against unwanted male attention and potential perverts are getting a lot of attention. The stockings are covered with black, curly hair -- the kind of hair you might see on an old, Mediterranean man rather than a young, sprightly female. They are both genius and horror show wrapped into one somewhat disturbing package.

For many women, the thought of having hair anywhere on their bodies is horrifying. I shave every day pretty much no matter what is going on, but even if I skipped a day, my legs wouldn't look like these. We are talking Big Foot here. And you know what? Sick as it is, it just might work.

Warding off gropers just got a lot more fun. See below:

Here are a couple other ideas for anti-grope accessories:

  • An "Ask Me About My Genital Herpes" t-shirt: This could be a big red t-shirt with yellow lettering announcing to the world that, yes, you have sores on your private parts and, yes, you want to talk about it. Because nothing says "hello pervert" like herpes. Right?
  • A clear plastic bag full of empty yeast infection cartons: Just casually hang out with your empty applicators and boxes. Announce to the world that, yes, you have yeast and, no, you aren't ashamed.
  • Armpit toupes: Wear a tank top and display your armpit rug PROUDLY. Yeah, that's you with a thick bush under your arms. You're not ashamed!

OK, in all seriousness, focusing all the attention on the woman and the way she is dressed is a huge part of blaming the victim. A woman should be able to wear a red dress with a slit up her thighs and not be touched by a man she doesn't want.

Even if this did stop men from groping you, it might not stop mean or lewd comments directed at you. It seems unlikely that any self-respecting woman would actually wear these when she can simply grow her own leg hair if she so chooses. But if she did, it would have nothing to do with warding off gropers. It just might be how she chooses to express herself.

Do you think these would work?

and a self respecting woman would wear a red dress with a slit up her thigh? can someone please explain to me how that is showing self respect?

In all reality, we should be able to walk around naked & not have to worry about anyone touching us that we don't want touching us.  Everyone wants to blame the women, when it's so many men who lack self-control.  You won't catch me walking around grabbing any 'cute butt' I see on a guy, no matter what they wear.  I fail to see how the choice of clothing has any bearing on the lack of self-control.  THAT is the root of this issue...

It disturbs me that it has come to this

Uhhh... can you please explain to me how that is NOT showing self respect?

how will this stop a pervert? a simple No means NO; if they are to sick to understand that nothing will stop them. A rapist wants one thing & hairy legs I am sure are not going to stop them either. Waste of money & dumb product; never will buy them or wear such a thing just stupid.

Disgusting..(however, some of my besties don't shave their pits any way)...
Beyond this, I feel it disturbing that we seem to be perpetuating the myth that all men are soon to be rapists..

men are constantly gauking at me and it makes me sick. i'm pregnant, for pete's sake! i find it offensive to myself, my daughter, and my husband. often times my daughter is with me when these jerks decide to spill their oh-so-classy pick-up lines. i'd totally rock these
