From China Changes Course (can be googled):|
"One of the more obscure things bureaucrats hope to phase out is kaidangku, the open-crotch pants worn by Chinese children that allow them to do their business wherever. Although the pants tend to draw stares from foreigners, defenders say they are comfortable, healthy and hasten the potty-training process.
Huang Wei, 31, an employee of the state TV network and mother of a 4-month-old girl, said she, her mother, grandmother and countless generations wore them, as does her daughter now.
She bristles at the effort to get rid of them, saying: "I don't see any link between kaidangku and the Olympics. It's pretty weak. I think the bureaucrats should be more concerned with spitting."
Kaidangku soon may have a new use, however. Several Chinese websites now promote the pants as romance enhancers. "Laced and convenient for you and your partner," promises one site. "Transparent, green and charming," says another."
So there you have it. Its official! One of the good things about the Beijing Olympics is crotchless panties!
