    It's a fair point, but I don't think walking into an office in functional clothing which happens to be a bit anatomically revealing is comparable to flashing or other forms of harassment, so I'm kinda with Foggers on this. Not least because baggy shorts work over the top of anything else look way sillier than cycling shorts worn alone. If it were my call I would prohibit cycling shorts in any colour except black, but that's more of an aesthetic judgement than a moral one.

  2. Someone tried to shame the OP for caring, saying .. if I may paraphrase "no one is interested in your penis"
    So I just made a supportive remark towards the OP.

    That's true - sorry, I'd forgotten the context of the your post.

    Blimey, has the Earth's magnetic polarity reversed or something?........only 'kinda', though!

    Evening, TC!

    Fully concur with this. Been cycling for 35+ years, and have only ever purchased black shorts! :okay:

    This impression suggests you're an able-bodied straight white man...

    ...but this suggests you're blind. ;)

    I don't think "everyday normal cycling gear" means what you think it does. Many UK cyclists seem to have a rather warped idea that skintight lycra isn't sports gear. In cycling-normal places, "everyday normal cycling gear" is probably jeans and a T-shirt:
  7. I said *more* open. They can be discriminatory and still be more open and accessible than in the past.

    As to the second point. You're right, "nearly everyone" was maybe an overstatement, but "a majority of recreational cyclists" wouldn't be far off the mark.

    :laugh: while I have not personally seen Linford Christie's business, your statement reminded me of my friend who was a history teacher. He was fond of musing about Henry XIII's, erm, well proportioned codpiece on his armor and wondering if he were exaggerating...

    I once had to walk through a women's prison wearing leathers. Felt a tad self-conscious, with women leaning out of cell windows shouting lewd comments!

    Well, quite. It gave me an insight into what this sort of thing is like. Easy to laugh off when it only happens once in your life .
