China eyes stockings that shoo away perverts

These hirsute leggings are designed to make a woman's legs as unattractive as possible. And for some women, that's apparently a good thing.

Stockings for girls that make legs look hairy (@Happy张江 via ChinaSMACK)Women in China apparently go to extreme lengths to keep oglers at bay.

Consider these new stockings that make your legs look like those of a very hairy man. A photo of the stockings was uploaded to Sina Weibo, which is the Chinese version of Twitter, and has gone viral, according to Mashable.

The caption accompanying the photo refers to "super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out."

No word on where to buy these stockings, or how much they will cost.

The post has become one of the most popular on Sina Weibo, according to the chinaSmack site. But judging from the comments, you won't see these stockings on anyone anytime soon.

"So disgusting!" one user wrote. "Tell me this isn't a female's legs," another added. And someone weighed in with a reasonable question: "If it has come to this, why not just wear pants? So unnecessary."

I don't believe this is real.  Looks like the legs of a real man were photoshopped with a woman's feet.

I think the fact that RegalMan did not post on this story proves without a doubt these do repel perverts.

If you made the choice to wear these, I'm assuming men were not flocking to you in the first place!
Just remember, they haven't outlawed razors yet. This can be reversed.

Those young girls won't have to worry about finding a husband or boyfriend either.  Well, OK, some men will screw anything.

why are women/girls so stupid? Dress as sexy as you can and then complain about the attention.

So vain, so goofy. Men has admired women since the begining. It will never end. Get over it and get over yourselves little women. All ads, all fashions, all t.v., is all about how sexy can you look, you do it all yourselves. Then you whine and sneer about the attention. Grow up ladies, men like women.

The stockings ignore probably the biggest problem that women have, they WANT attention, that's why certain features are on display to begin with, but they don't want it from normal males, just the attractive ones, check out the Tom Brady Saturday Night Live skit on sexual harassment for a good example.
