This is a question Annoying words and phrases

Marketing bollocks, buzzword bingo, or your mum saying "fudge" when she really wants to swear like a trooper. Let's ride the hockey stick curve of this top hat product, solutioneers.

not me (as they say) but my wife.
why can she not stand a perfectly reasonable descriptive term for women's underpants?
she is almost physically repelled by the word
any women out there the same?

I'm a bloke
And I refer to my sensible boxer shorts as "knickers".

Try referring to them as....
...gashbags, bush balaclavas, hairy wound hammocks, or fishpot tea cosies. She'll be begging for panties.

...it's such a nasty, mimsy little word that it makes my flesh crawl. The only time you really hear it used is in advertising and by pervy blokes explaining what they'd like to do to you, neither of which have helped the reputation of the word.

I prefer 'pants' for big pants, or 'squirrel-guard' for a thong.

I hate it because it's a stupid word.
Just say pants or knickers.

I never ever use that word! It's just... wrong.
