“The Nightshirt” – How I Met Your Mother

Pretty much everything that Marshall and Barney say about the nightshirt could be said about skirts too. How I Met Your Mother, Season 4, Episode 17 (2009).

  1. There is a great episode of [URL=https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1256178/]How I Met Your Mother (S4E17, 2009)[/url] where pretty much everything that Marshall and Barney say about nightshirts could be said about skirts too—from the liminal objections and mockery to the latter liberty and comfort. I searched the forum but didn’t find mention of it: [url

    In and of itself the episode is a great dose of apologetics. I wonder what it would take for someone in the entertainment industry to do the same thing with skirts but without the gender-identity context that was most recently presented on Rosanne.

    And yes, nightshirts are marvelous. I remember both my grandfather and a great uncle not giving seven shits what anyone thought. For a time they were very tough to find, but with the internet they are sufficiently available.
