The Right to Take Off His Pants
This article from the Associated Press is certainly worth a read. In part the article states, A 6-foot-tall, 250-pound letter carrier is campaigning for the right to take off his pants. Dean Peterson wants the U.S. Postal Service to add kilts as a uniform option for men. The idea was soundly defeated in July at a convention of his union, the 220,000-member National Letter Carriers' Association, so Peterson knows convincing management will be an uphill struggle, but at least he'll be comfortable in his kilt, or Male Unbifurcated Garment. "In one word, it's comfort," he said. …"Unbifurcated Garments are far more comfortable and suitable to male anatomy than trousers or shorts because they don't confine the legs or cramp the male genitals the way that trousers or shorts do," he wrote. "Please open your hearts — and inseams — for an option in mail carrier comfort!” I’m in full agreement with this wannabe kilted latter carrier. Kilts are much more comfortable. Bifurcated clothing for men is a relatively new trend. I was just thinking about this the other night when I came across the movie “Troy” on the tube. You find some really tough “he-man” type guys fighting in skirts. Why the change? I’m sure there is a reason should one want to do some historical research on male clothing trends but I wish we could reverse it. So, c'mon guys, take off those pants and don those kilts.
