What is it about fishnet stockings that cause men to turn into obnoxious prats? They never seem to notice if you wear patterned tights, whether they be flowery or covered in geometic shapes, but as soon as you put on a pair of fishnet stockings, every single last one of them feels it necessary to comment...and comment in the most asenine way.
