A store across the pond is launching a new line of underpants that will, apparently, redress a decades-long injustice:
The new range, by UK-based Hom, will have a horizontal opening instead of a vertical slit accessed from the right-hand side, breaking a tradition that has lasted for 75 years.

"In our view, this is a vital step toward equality for left-handed men," said Rob Faucherand of Debenhams store.
The article goes on to mention that "left-handed men have to reach much further into their pants, performing a Z shaped maneuver through two 180 degree angles before achieving the result that right handed men perform with ease" in order to take a leak.

**If you don't want to learn something VERY personal about me, I'd seriously suggest that you quit reading this right now.**

Um, I've been wearing boxers for years now, and they have the "slit" right in the middle, as the article goes on to mention, but I don't remember the tighty whities that the article is doubtlessly talking about being especially convenient for right-handers, either. In fact, I've always suspected that the kind of underpants we're discussing were designed by a vindictive woman.
