Skip to comments.Panty Protest: Kazakhstan Women Outraged by Lace Underwear Ban
Posted on 02/17/2014 7:02:42 AM PST by workerbee
Women took to the streets wearing panties on their heads Sunday as they protested new laws banning lace underwear in Kazakhstan.
The legislation - which includes provisions covering the required level of moisture absorbtion in the garments - will come into force this summer in Kazakhstan as well as Russia and Belarus, according to the Moscow Times.
This sparked the so-called "Panties for the President" demonstrations in the Kazakh capital, Almaty, on Sunday.
"It irritates me the most that the authorities want to decide what I should wear," Iryna Davydenko, a bank manager who travels regularly between Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, told Al Arabiya English. "As if all other issues in the country are solved and the only outstanding issue is ladies' panties."

“Women took to the streets wearing panties on their heads Sunday...”
What kind of moisture do you girls GENERATE ?
I guess they don't go much for thongs, then, either...
Why is it Slick Willy comes immediately to mind?
And the Mohammedan police will inspect women’s undergarments? What a bunch of sick evil twits!! Oh, I forgot, they are followers of Mohammed who was an illiterate, murderous, pedophilic thug.
Sounds like a campaign that Gov Cuomo, Mayor Wilhelm (aka de Blasio) and Maryland’s Gov O’Malley can adopt for their own ‘nanny state’ diktats to protect the people from making their own choices.
I've never seen the Kardashians, but read the title that way, and was initially totally confused.
Kardashian or Kazakhstan, what difference does it make?
I apologize in advance for panty ignorance. I am not familiar with some of the intricacies of female undergarments (or females in general for that matter). I read this reason but cannot logically deduce even a ridiculous and illogical bases for such a law (religious or otherwise). They mention a moisture content. This does not compute. Moisture content of what? The panties are too dry? Women are suppose to start with wetter panties? I'm not even sure what I am picturing as "lace panties" is what is banned by the law.
I'm sure I am over thinking this, but pictures would be helpful. I'm trying to tie this into a "human rights" perspective. Is this a farcical obfuscation to institute a faction of Islamic sexism? Is that what this is?
The guy on the right looks like he has already seen them in that underwear.
Maybe Russian like to diddle themselves at work ?
Just cool it, you are in way over your head.
I think this is a soft, prop-up-Hillary piece.
It’s a vague story that links to
a 2012 article about Hildabeast saying Russia
was trying to ‘re-sovietize the region’.
Plus, it’s from NBC.
I wouldn’t give it too much attention or credence.
That is funny.
Now that might just give Obama the idea that panties should be regulated and covered under Obamacare just like birth control. It's every woman's right, right!!?? Let's see how many pairs per month would be allowed before a copay? Is there a discount for thongs? This opens up a whole new area to get the women's vote and attack the Republicans for denying women the basic human right to wear panties.
“6 percent of what?” is the crucial question here.
I mean volume, not substance.
Believe it or not, it’s an issue with wearing some synthetic fibers.
Cotton vs. polyester? Silk Vs. Lycra? Paper Vs. Plastic? Is it legal for their woman to "not where panties at all"? How do they calculate the resulting "absorption rate" of that?
In Soviet Kazakhstan, panties line you.
I would also guess there are no Victoria’s Secret stores in Kazakhstan.
Of course, it’s a silly law that takes away individual choice. I’m sure glad the US doesn’t have any of those.
I'm outraged for them.
The proposed regulation doesn't ban wearing, it bans selling. No new hygienic certificate for such pants anymore, and selling ungergarments without one is a misdemeanour punished with a fine.
The absorbtion is measured in a lab when a producer/importer provides a sample. The method, I guess, is weighting the sample before and after moisturizing it.
If Congress can dictate what toilets and light bulbs we can use why not regulate panties as well.
next thing you know, they will be compothing a patriotic thong about this ithue.
The scary thing is that if they’re throwing those numbers around, they clearly already have a bureaucracy that is dedicated to running around and measuring moisture inside womens’ panties.
I served in that bureaucracy — or at least a spontaneous college chapter — but that was before I met my wife ...
Another example of totalitarianism.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! Please exit the thread in a orderly fashion ...
hee hee Hee.
I have noticed a lack of attention to men’s undies...boxers or briefs....question.
Don't ask, don't tell!
"You made a BINGO!"
