What does big girl/boy underwear have to do with anything anyway?

People are constantly saying to others "put on your big girl panties". Exactly what is that supposed to mean anyway? If you have little girl panties on what happens? Are you more mature if you're wearing big girl panties? Is there something that I am seriously missing here? =)

  • Well, I was hoping for a little humor in regards to a totally messed up phrase (because I think it's nuts) but anyway... =)

  • You pretty much nailed it.
    Putting on your big girl panties means mature up, stop being such a little ninny.
    That's what it means to me anyways... :]

  • Just make sure you're not wearing your little boy undies because that would just be creepy

  • It's similar to:

    Grow up.
    Stop being a baby.
    Stop whining.
    Stop complaining.
    Time to get mature.

    etc, etc.

  • I don't understand why this is such a hard concept to grasp. It's not like any of us are wearing underoo's at this age.

  • It's not a hard concept to grasp. It's just an EXTREMELY CORNY statement. Thanks for your comment though (anon 9:19)!
