China Introduces Hairy Stockings As Anti-Pervert Tactic

Getting gawked at by creepers isn’t fun for any woman, but now there’s a super weird way to possibly ward off unwanted attention. Introducing: China’s “hairy leg” stockings.

“Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out,” says a translated quotation from @HappyZhangJiang, a user of the microblogging site Sina Weibo.

Bonus: not only will you send perverts packing while amazing passersby with your follicly-superior limbs, you can always use the stockings for next Halloween’s Yeti costume.

The hairy stockings are a wacky and lighthearted spin on more serious (and sadly necessary) anti-assault devices like the anti-rape bra from India and the anti-rape condom from South Africa. It’s a depressing reality that devices like the anti-rape bra and condom are real-world necessities for some women.

The real question is, what would these stockings go with? A vintage top with Mary Janes or a sundress and gladiator sandals? The possibilities are endless, really.
