Algo de historia del calzoncillo

¿Qué es eso de "boxer"? Se llama calzoncillo.

Sabemos por La Ilíada que los griegos asociaban el calzoncillo a la realeza. La clase alta romana lo usó, pero tras la caída del Imperio, como otras cosas, su uso cayó en el olvido y parece que en todo el mundo los hombres (y las mujeres) no se preocupaban por usar nada bajo sus ropas.

Fue en la Baja Edad Media que un monje, preocupado porque al trabajar en el campo las malas hierbas ortigantes y espinosas, las garrapatas y otros insectos hacían estragos en sus genitales, emprendió la tarea de reinventarlo.

A principios del siglo veinte en Costa Rica se confeccionaban en el hogar, de manta y con perneras. Luego de los sesentas, época que permitió mostrar más piel al aire libre, llegó para las mujeres el traje de baño de dos piezas y para ambos géneros, respectivamente, el calzón y el calzoncillo estilo tanga.
A fines de siglo se reintrodujo el clásico calzoncillo con perneras. Ahí vino el problema del anglicismo, la publicidad introdujo eso de "boxer".

¿Por qué no usar simplemente la palabra calzoncillo? Y si alguien nos pregunta qué tipo usamos, pues si queremos informarle, le aclaramos que usamos el "calzoncillo largo" o con perneras o un calzoncillo tanga. (O si se trata de alguien que nos erotiza y le resultamos atractivo, pues simplemente le invitamos a averiguarlo)

  1. Al calzoncillo lo que es del calzoncillo
    al calzón lo que es del calzón
    al sostén lo que es del sostén
    y que se quiten al grito del amor.
    Nada de boxer que a perro suena
    ni de bloomer que suena a plástico
    no sé el por qué
    ni brassiere que marca de cigarros parece
    pero ni humo echa.
