Victoria's Panty

Dear Victoria's Secret,

I hate to be pedantic but one does not wear 'a' panty any more than a pant. Panties and pants come in the unit of a pair. The panty is the part that encases one leg, historically connected at the waist in a crotchless manner. The principle is the same as in a pair, albeit indivisible, of scissors. (There is also, of course, the issue that underwear for women uses the diminutive form of "panty/ies" while even the smallest set for boy-children are under"pants".)

Like "pussy," I really can't bring myself to use this word. It just reminds me of porn.
