I have to admit that I like pants. I like the warmth they provide, and I like the comfort of knowing that nobody can see the outline of my vagina.
But apparently, not everyone feels the same way. Yesterday was “No Pants Subway Ride” day in dozens of major cities around the world, and judging solely by pictures floating around the internet, everyone secretly wants to nude up on public transportation: large groups of people were photographed out in public and sans pantalon.
Organized by a group called Improv Everywhere, “No Pants Subway Ride” is fairly self explanatory — it asks participants to not wear pants on the subway, and to feign ignorance if anyone questions them (i.e. “Oh, I must have forgotten to put them on!”). It’s not the kind of stunt one would expect to really take off, but this is its 11th year, and I guess it’s tapped into some kind of primal, pantless urges in city-dwelling folk.
So how about you? Would you drop trou and ride the subway?
