It was an interview where she said that knickers/pants were ridiculously unnecessary garments with no possible use whatsoever.

Now I love nothing more than being able to spend a whole week without any clothes on, but if I am wearing them, then pants do massively reduce the speed with which my trousers have to go in the wash. It seemed very odd to me that she had never heard of this idea. I remember thinking, either she has an odd vagina with no juices or smelly trousers or a massive laundry basket. I have never forgotten it.

Eta: can't find it, but she seems to refer to it in the Clive Anderson Talks Back interview which is on you tube.

^ quite.
For me it's about keeping the laundry down (I wear clean pants every day, of course. I don't want to be having to wash my jeans every day instead ::)) and also about reducing chafing :-[

Do you have chaffing problems, too, Kate?

Who really cares re: the knickers/no knickers thing? By which I mean: surely it's just personal choice. What always strikes me as massively un-feminist is women (or anyone) decreeing what other women should and shouldn't do with their own bodies.

Might this be another 'flannelgate'?

#knickersgate, I feel some testifying coming on...

My name is Earl. I can't remember the last time I went native commando, but I do remember having thought that, damn, these jeans will have to go in the wash now. And I think on these occasions I might have felt a little uncomfortable, too. And maybe not as liberated as I probably should have felt.

I have never castigated, in public or otherwise, anyone else for doing/not doing this. Nor have I given the topic much thought until now. Amen.

Can I get a hallelujah?
