Are You Too Stupid To Understand Why Men Wear Lingerie?
In spite of the fact that I've been writing these articles for a couple of years now, and in spite of the fact that if you, you know, actually read any of them, you'll get a good sense of what they are about, some people still come up with the most dense questions possible and still ask, after having read an article which explains why men wear lingerie, 'Why do men wear lingerie?' I imagine they do this with a cow like bewilderment, no doubt chewing their cud thoughtfully with the effort of trying to understand someone other than themselves.
I know who you people are. You are the people who would always put up their hands in class with stupid questions (and yes, there is such a thing as a stupid question, especially if you are substituting asking questions for actually figuring anything out for yourself,) that did nothing but take up the teacher's time. You were the ones for whom free thinking was too terrifying so you just learned everything by rote and then regurgitated it back. You are the ones so puzzled by and scared of the world that instead of celebrating the wonderful diversity in it, you have to divide everything neatly up into little boxes and you get mad at anyone or anything that defies your boxes.
So, one more time now.
Why do men wear lingerie?
They do it because they like it. Because it feels good. Because it is fun and enjoyable. They do it for the same reason that some men race cars and other men carve little wooden boats and other men read FHM, and for the same reason that some women read romance novels. They do it for the fun of escapism, to try to capture a reality that always seems just out of reach.
They do it because it brings them peace, brings them joy, and makes them happy. And there is nothing wrong with them doing it either.
If you feel like judging something, judge people who think that being paid to kill for a living is an honorable profession. Judge those who take bribes and live off the fat of the land whilst others starve. Judge people who neglect their children. Judge those who commit crimes of hatred. Don't waste your time and your energy judging men who are brave and bold enough to pursue harmless happiness. There are plenty of real things to get incensed and enraged about.
If, on the other hand, you just like to be stumped for no reason, don't be stumped on a simple question like 'Why do men wear bras?' Be stumped on a question worth answering. Why are we here? What provided the spark of life in the universe? What happens after we die? What is love? Is there a God? Can we travel through time? How do we end human suffering?
Engage your brain and open your heart and you'll find that many questions, including the question of why some men like to wear lingerie, answer themselves.
