Sexist man on Twitter is expertly shut down by feminists

Dude, face it. Women’s clothes are sexist.

Just have a think about it, bro. Enter any footwear shop and see the ridiculous difference made between male and female trainers, the sheer impracticality of finding a pair of jeans that fit the actual shape of our body, and the lauded obsession over the roster of women’s clothing sizes versus the male world of small, medium and large.

We don’t want every item to be pink. We don’t want every item to fall apart. AND WE DO WANT TO TRY ON OUR CLOTHES IN KINDER MIRRORS. 

Picking out clothing can be a hellish affair

Sorry for shouting. It’s just that we’d like our clothes to have a bit more comfort and durability to them, and to be the same quality as our male counterparts, all for the same price.

This is exactly the same issue that Twitter legend Bree Mae was trying to get across when she tweeted that she had bought some male trainers.

That’s when one stellar maninterrupter, by the Twitter handle of @imryanphilpsbro, no less, decided the world needed to hear his two cents on the topic.

This is when @vandroidhelsing, aka Twitter user and feminist ally Jared Pechacek, decided to wade in to add a dose of sanity to the conversation.
