What's wrong with Fishnets?


Excuse me? "Whoever the fuck I am"? I'm fucking Picklechops, and I will NOT be spoken to like that. Don't be so damn rude.

Your post comes across as rude, insulting and confrontational. And if there are three things that get my back up, its people being rude, insulting and confrontational towards me. And you really don't want to get my back up.

Just so you know, Tahlia expressed her view a hell of a lot clearer than you did. And I did not not call you personally a hypocrite, just that I thought that frame of mind was a little hypocritical, and I still do. That is merely my opinion, and you certainly aren't going to change it when you speak to me like that. So whoever the fuck YOU are, don't try and use my friends posts as ammunition to shoot your mouth off at me.

When did people suddenly think it was okay to be so fucking rude around here, seriously?

^^^^ what she said. So whoever the fuck you are that said I was a hypocrite. Fuck up.


EXCUSE ME?! Whatever happened to rational, polite debate? I completely fail to see how you writing that was constructive in any way, and I seriously suggest you check your mouth, we're nice people here and we don't tolerate people being spoken to in that way.

LouiseHeslip, good job on acting so maturely to a simple opinionated discussion.
You're new here, I don't think you should be fucking around and insulting people who haven't even said anything wrong to you.
I suggest you think twice before joining such forums if you're going to be this much of a bitch to people.
Grow up, and maybe come back in a few years when you're not acting like 6 year old taking everything so god damn personally.

Ahhhh, don't everyone jump on her yet. Give her a chance to apologise, or at least explain herself.

Anti-Feminist Behaviour?


"Holy shit son, it's going down."

But in all seriousness, Louise, this isn't one of those god aweful shit hole arse end of the internet forums where you can just say whatever you like. Here we have a nice community and it's all carefully moderated so not only are there official rules to follow but common decency is quite nice since we are all like friends and aqaintances here.

If you feel like you were insulted in anyway don't kick up such a fuss (and since you're new you ought to know you certainly don't kick up a fuss with Pickle uness you can back it up with more that a few curse words). You coud have simply stated you felt upset at her comments in a calm way and explained why.

Also, I was explaining how you coud improve your attitude, don't use my words to worsen it.

I love my forum reputation as a badass. I'm actually really lovely IRL... well... unless someone makes me REALLY angry. Then I start the scrotum splattering.

I've never gotten any bad, or rude looks when wearing fishnets, I even wore them to church a couple of times.

maybe it depends on where you are?
I know if I would've gone to school in a nice outfit and fishnets, some of the teachers would've had a fit, because they would probably buy into the whole fishnets=slut/whore and that I may have been doing it for attention.

hmm

It's not badass as such, you're just free with the tough love. Which kicks ass. Sometimes people just need to be told when to step off; niceness is fantastic but not always helpful.

I had a pair of fishnet stockings, and I loved them... but I had to chop them up for a fancy dress party because they only cost £2 from New Look, didn't fit, and I could get a better pair that would last longer.

All hail teh fishnets!

I try to be experimental with my fishnets. I'll wear them with heels and a corset. A skirt with baseball boots. Bright coloured tights with nets over them. Knee high socks over the nets. But my fave is underneath ripped, torn jeans. If someone can't handle a lil fabric I feel sorry for their partner *pictures them screaming "whore" as their partner wears shorts*

No-one's ever said anything to me specifically for wearing fishnets, but then I do live in That London. I'm from a crappy suburb and do get a few funny looks, but I get them if I wear stripy tights rather than fishnets. Also I tend to wear otherwise conservative clothes to sort of balance out my saucy leg wear!

I bought two pairs of fishnets just today :P (just in case one of them rips). Mum expressed her disapproval before I bought them, but decided it was my choice, as long as I don't wear them when I'm with her xD Dad called them ho tights, but I don't think he'll do anything about it. So they've got a pretty relaxed attitude towards them, I guess....
I know some of my friends don't like them, but they can go screw :P

Well I think fishnets are gorgious, My girlfriend has a pair of fishnett stockings, and Boy do I love them. But isn`t the whole point of fishnets to look a bit slutty?
I tried fishnets, can`t wear them cause I looked like a packed ham in them, wich really makes me envious.

hmmm a fairly good point.

i work at a fancy dress shop in my town,
and ive noticed that people that come in looking for "slutty" "slappery" outfits they always buy the fishnets.

Although saying that, i think a LOT of women who look down on others who wear them, secretly want to themselves. But are jealous of others's courage to do it themselves.
i generally do think there should be a day dedicated to wear them... my liberation senses are tingling. :D

I wore a pair of fishnet stockings with a flowery sundress and a cardigan sweater last year and was told by a guy friend of mine that I needed to change because I looked slutty. I was really hurt. I thought it was a very cute outfit. Nobody wears alternative stuff around here and it's hard to do so without being judged pretty harshly. I don't wear them anymore. I miss them, but I'm not in a position where I want to appear unprofessional.

One of my close girl friends still tries to tell me constantly "Don't dress like a slut! No short skirts or fishnets or hooker boots!" She dresses really conservatively and tells me that "You are a cute girl and we are only trying to protect you."


I can't wait to move somewhere out of the Bible belt with a more open-minded community.

Ladies, there is one reason why fishnets are taboo, and one reason only.

They're sexy as fuck.

But they cover more than bare legs

Yes, that's my point. They cover just enough to break up legs, and manage to leave so much exposed. Much in the same way a high slit in a long skirt is sexual even though "it's an ankle length skirt"

As we know, sexuality has been a taboo in society since christanity imposed it's views of modesty on the western world.

So, in conclusion:
Using the form If x=y and y=z, then x=z
fishnets = sexy and sexy = taboo, fishnets = taboo.

(I did not just use math to explain fashion and cultural norms....)

I've got quite a few pairs of fishnets, and I used to wear them all the time during the day and never got funny looks at all. Funnily enough that changes if you have toddler with you!




LOL!!!! Too true!! I never changed my style after having kids! biggrin I wear them double layered. I have a solid color under the black fishnets...the solid color matching the rest of my outfit. Love it! And I don't care what others think, they all dress the same around here anyhow! Boring!

I have a pair of spider-web fishnets. I don't wear them much, but I tend to wear them over a solid colour like purple or something.

I think I'm developing a fetish for fishnet stockings. I'm going to ask for a suspender belt this Christmas so I can get some. I doubt my Mum'll be thrilled, but hey- I'm gonna be sixteen :D

I don't really understand the disaproval...I LIVE IN THEM. I think theres an association with prostitution. hookers=sex that can be bought therfore if you wear them you are somehow a slut but that maths is wrong fishnets=sex= wearing them=sexy.

People are easily influenced by what they see in the movies,and a good majority of the movies portray those in fishnets as whores.It's just the ignorance of the general public.Anyone with half an IQ wouldn't make these assumptions,of course.When the clock of the world runs like this we must block the cogs banana peels and throw all into distortion.XD
