Men, The New Women, Alert: Ya Think They’re Wearing Meggings in the Islamic World?

By Debbie Schlussel

As longtime readers know, one of the things I most lament in Western culture is the feminization of men and the masculinization of women. Blurring the gender roles is the death of the Western world. Not one matriarchy has ever lasted. And, then, malefactors like Islam come in to fill the void when there is a lack of masculinity. And, so, in that light, I ask: Ya think they’re wearing “Meggings” (skin-tight fashion Leggings for men) in Al-Qaeda or anywhere in the Muslim world?



Not Sexy, Not Men

I’ve already written about the absurdity of “skinny jeans” for men. But this is worse. Um, I enjoy seeing the size and definition of your unit through your skintight pants as much as I enjoy seeing the same (otherwise known as an appendage of a camel’s feet) with regard to a woman’s genitals. As in, not so much. TMI, people. TMI. But apparently these meggings are “taking Manhattan by storm.” And while you might think this bizarre girlie fashion for men is just the domain of gay models and hairdressers, think again. Your daughters’ idols, like Justin Bieber, are embracing the trend and giving your kids the wrong idea about what’s masculine (and what isn’t). G-d help us.

Men’s tights, for so long the preserve of ballet dancers and runway models, are taking Manhattan by storm and could soon be seen on the street of Britain.

When trendsetters speculated what would be the defining men’s fashion movement to sweep New York this winter, few opted for the male legging.

But “Megging”, as the male legging is known, is now all the rage in sartorial circles. Celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz have all been spotted wearing leggings, while fashion stores Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom are selling tights for men.

The bad news is they are on their way to Britain: Uniqlo is already selling them on its British website, and their success in New York is seen as an indication they will also prove popular here.

They are expected to follow on from the trend for “skinny jeans” on men, which have become a staple of the British high street.

One proud “megger” is Mark Dorosz, 34, an English internet entrepreneur who lives on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

“Male tights are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans,” he said. “I’ve always had good legs and it’s nice to show them off all year round.

Yes, I know that Joe Willie Namath once wore pantyhose (and did pantyhose ads) while in the NFL. But that was to keep warm. You don’t see him wearing them today, do you? Or even when he drunkenly told ESPN’s Suzy Kolber on the air that he wanted to kiss her. Wearing meggings is far more embarrassing than that.

The Muslim world is trying to destroy us, and our “men” are wearing meggings.

As underwear – particularly thermal underwear – these things are perfectly acceptable. Always have been.

But as outerwear?

Er, what do you do for pockets? Throw a musette bag over your shoulder and call it a “murse”?

While we’re at it, why not “civilianize” ALICE gear so we can stylishly equip ourselves with ergonomic load-bearing elements that’re comfortable, functional, and look a helluva lot better than these “meggings”?

On the 28th of October 2012, two young city workers wore ill fitting female leggings to a fancy dress party in north London. These two individuals alongside another mutual friend have now tasked themselves with designing, manufacturing and selling male leggings to the fashion conscious Londoner.

Reading this blog post makes me SO GLAD I AM GAY. Gay men appreciate the male body at its most sexual. Even adult women are like squeamish little girls. I feel bad for my straight brethren who constantly have to constrain themselves to win women over. How miserable and oppressive!
