Women of China: instead of covering up your body with bags and newspapers, as Beijing police have recommended, why not just slip on a pair of these hairy leg stockings to keep the perverts at bay?
Pictures of these bushy stockings have been blowing up on Weibo, with one user describing them as “Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all girls going out,” according to ChinaSMACK. Here’s the full effect:
Netizens have mixed reactions about the garment.
“Damn, so disgusting!!!” said one user.
“Too lifelike, this is manlier than the average man…” said another.
One user pointed out that hairy leg look might also steer away wanted attention from handsome men. “This will not only prevent against perverts, it’ll definitely also result in preventing handsome guys from approaching you. When things go to the extreme, they can only go the opposite direction!!!”
“Essential for the subway?” one user asked, perhaps in reference to the recent guidelines posted by the Beijing public transport authorities and police asking women “not to wear minimal clothing” to prevent sexual harassment on subways and buses.
Are they real? Are people buying them? Do they come in other colors? Are they another one of China’sstrange hairy accessories, or a must-have item for the summer season?
You be the judge.
