Outrage: Russia Bans Lacy Panties! Video!
"A trade ban on lacy lingerie has Russian consumers and their neighbors with their knickers in a twist.
The ban will outlaw any underwear containing less than 6 percent cotton from being imported, made, or sold in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. And it has struck a chord in societies where La Perla and Victoria`s Secret are panty paradises compared to Soviet-era cotton underwear, which was often about as flattering and shapely as drapery."
Russia has come a long way since the Soviet Union fell apart, Russians no longer wait in line for hours to purchase staples such as bread and milk, and they no longer dress like fashion-challenged peasants.
Russian women have their panties in a twist over the ban on sexy underwear; wearing granny panties may have been par for the course in the Soviet days, but now they want to don slinky panties.
If Putin thought that the Pussy Riot girls were a pain in the a**, he ain`t seen nothing yet, millions of panties-deprived women will bring down his regime.
Last weekend 30 female protesters in Kazakhstan were arrested and thrown into police vans for wearing sexy thongs on their heads and shouting "Freedom to panties!"
Eighty percent of the sexy panties sold in Russia are imported from Europe, Russian manufacturers need to get with the program and manufacture sexy panties.
Russian women need to don their big girl panties, hit the streets, and fight for their right to wear thongs.
