My friend posted a picture on facebook of a new pair of pants she’d bought with fake pockets, with the caption “WHY, FASHION INDUSTRY. WHY? Sexist bastards, give me my pockets.”
This led to a discussion/complaining session in the comments about how pockets on women’s pants are always annoyingly tiny or nonexistent. One guy in the comments posted, “What’s wrong with guys carrying your stuff for you? Wouldn’t you rather us carry them?” I explained that no, we really would not rather have to ask a guy whenever we wanted to use our phones, buy something, etc. His response was, “It’s called a purse?” I said, “purses suck. you have to carry them around and then they get stolen,” because in my experience, purses have largely just been a huge pain.
He answered, “I believe that’s why humans created purses. Get over it. If your that frustrated with your pants not having pockets, go major in fashion, and start your own business that sells pants and shorts for women, with pockets.”
I guess pocket sexism is Our Fault, We’re Female. #MFIF
