As a woman, I understand the desire to protect oneself from aggressive and perverted advances. But I'm still not sure I'd wear what is now reportedly being sold in China. Hairy Stockings! Check out the picture and ask yourself...would you wear them?

A picture of these supposed leggings has gone viral on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, called Sina Weibo. The idea is that if a woman looks like she has legs heavily covered in thick hair, then men will be repelled.

The post on Sina Weibo by someone called HappyZhangJiang reads, "Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out."

While the picture has gone viral, it's unclear where one can purchase the leggings. But whether it's a real product or a photo shopped hoax, it's still an interesting idea!

Great discussion here on Huff Post about the picture...
