One Reply to “How I Met Your Mother: “The Nightshirt””

  1. There is a great episode of [URL=]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.
