The word boxers has 3 definitions.
1. A plural to the term boxer; a participant in the sport of boxing.
2. An alternative form of underwear to Y-fronts and/or briefs to which the third definition may also apply.
3. An adjective for a heterosexual girl or homosexual man, more commonly for the former, who has loose sexual inhibitions (commonly known as a slut). To refer to someone as 'boxers' is to imply they spend all their time either around the genital area of a man, or getting wet rolling around (or more likely rubbing up) alongside others like them. It is thought that this term was first used in this manner in a banterous pub conversation between a group of friends featuring such a woman.

Best underwear ever. Like government, underwear's sole purpose sould be to protect the people without taking away too much of their freedom. Boxers serve this purpose greatly. They prevent the chafin of the genitals while letiing the balls go free.

Look better on women than men? Not really. Well, I guess they do, because women are women and men are men and I'm not attratced to men, so yeah. As for them being the only type of men's underwear that look better on women than men, hell no. Of course, it would be disturbing to see a chick in boxer briefs with the crotch holder hanging out, but I'd much rather see a chick in men's briefs than boxers.
Boxers seperate the men from the boys.

A slang name given to a member of the secret kung-fu society "Heavenly Fists" during Qing (Ch'ing) China by Western folks.

They consisted of people who claimed to be impervious to bullets and pain, therefore the Empress Dowager allowed them to go on a rampage.

The British and others saw they were doing some weird "boxer" fighting movements, hence the name "Boxer".
"The Boxer Rebellion was pretty ineffective."
