‘Hairy leg hosiery’ first appeared on the micro blogging Chinese site Sina Weibo (The Chinese version of Twitter). It was then picked up by the Shanghai trend-watcher site ChinaSMACK and has since gone viral.
Apparently these ‘hairy leg’ tights are being hailed in China as the ‘perfect summertime anti-pervert device’ and ‘essential for young girls going out’.
Even if it did discourage unwanted male attention surely the wearer is at greater risk if worn in the vicinity of an over amorous male gorilla?
This has got to be a well-orchestrated internet prank. I can’t find these for sale anywhere.
Not that I am looking to buy them.
I can grow my own in just under a month….
