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.
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.
I bought myself two pairs of men's shoes today and GUESS WHAT they have arch support quality I've NEVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE.— Bree Mae (@TheBreeMae) August 2, 2017
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.
Incredible strand of tweets right here. Clothing is sexist now. What a time https://t.co/hK5kRtuiJ8— Ryan (@imryanphllpsbro) August 2, 2017
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.
My dude, clothing IS sexist and has been for centuries, my bro, broseph, guy who's never had to worry about whether his pants have pockets. pic.twitter.com/K78CmIP6As— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
The saltiness of this conversation will season your meals for the rest of the week.
Man, bro, sweetums, I'm not sure you've ever had to deal with clothes meant to present you like a delicacy rather than warm/cool/cover you.— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
Titus Flavius Brosephus, you might not realize that the entire world has bent itself to empower you, to make you safe, & to leave others out— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
Have you, brocarbonate of soda, paid a second of attention even to the way clothes are marketed to you vs. to women?— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
Is brocarbonate of soda the best insult of all time?
You can wear any pants you want and be assured of keeping necessities upon your person. Do you know not everyone gets to, Duke of Brobon?— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
And why are they saying it, Prince Charming? And is it uncomfortable to hear? Why is it uncomfortable to hear, Jacques Dudesteau?— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
The exchange doesn’t stop here. Pachachek goes on to coin the term DUDENHEIM MUSEUM.
Maybe you think it's just feminist whining. Did it occur to you there's a reason feminists are mad, Dudenheim Museum?— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
This is called "privilege", Brolossus of Rhodes. Privilege is basically all the things you've never had to worry about.— Jared Pechacek (@vandroidhelsing) August 2, 2017
And as Michelle says:

Sexists, think again before you are bro’d into the stratosphere.
