This Man's Facebook Rant About Women's Clothing Couldn't Be More True
It's a well-known fact that women's clothing sizes are bullshit. In one high street shop, you're a 14 on top and a 10 on bottom. In another, you're the size of a double decker bus.
This particular everyday joy has always seemed like it's limited to people with a vagina, as it a lot of stupid stuff that makes no sense. Typically, men are S, M, L and so on, while women fret over having to buy a size 16 summer dress when they KNOW they were a 10 last year.
What gives? That's the question Benjamin Ashton Cooper asked himself (and then the internet) when he helped his girlfriend clear out her wardrobe.
Trying on her clothes, labelled 'XL', he found that they fitted him - a man of the 'M' variety.
‘I am not an extra large man, and, more importantly, a woman my size is NOT an extra large woman,’ he says.
‘This bullsh*t right here is why we have 8 year olds with eating disorders. This sh*t right here is why men shout “f*cking fat hog!” at even nominally curvy girls on the street', he added.
And we'd be inclined to agree.
