And it's even -more- obnoxious when the likes of Victoria's Secret
gratuitously hires a b/i/m/b/o model with a British accent to say "pahnties"
to emphasize the deprecatory obnoxious terms....
I have the same emotional revulsion to it that you have!
Cutesy-poo derisive deprecating dismissal....

Digression: I do loathe the word "panties". Horrid, horrid diminutive -
suggesting that female underclothing is somehow less *important*. It
goes along with "don't worry your pretty little head about it", pink
ballpoint pens, and mansplaining.
Condescending, dismissive, demeaning. Ugh.
