This photo is of my town, it’s in quite a poor part and when I passed it on the bus I really realised how true it is

This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…


men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.


THE NOTES ON THIS


because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.” 

BUT THISTHISTHISTHISTHIS

so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT

Forever grateful for this post for removing the shame of going into a different store and finding that the pants do not fit me even though I am WEARING the “same size” pants right that moment.

The best thing that ever happened to me and the story I most love to tell:
After skinny jeans got to be a thing, one of my guy friends asked me to go with him to buy some.  He’s already super skinny (men’s size 28 jeans) so he couldn’t find skinny jeans that didn’t look like relaxed fit on him.  He was all, “We can go to the thrift store and shop the girl pants!  I’ll find a ton, it will be fun!”  So we went.
We walk in and I got a cart, and we go to the ladies’ jeans.  This thrift store had two or three 20-ft rows of jeans.  I go, “You wear mens’ 28?” and he goes, “Yeah.  What’s that in women’s?”  I said, “You can’t wear women’s sizes.  Women is plus size.  You’re a misses.”  ”Wha?!”
I took the cart to size 8.  ”Start here.  Put all the pants you like the looks of in the cart.  Go until you get to 14.  Then we go and start trying things on.”  ”Wha?!”
"But what SIZE do I wear?!" he kept saying.  I got annoyed about halfway through the twelves, so I said, "Let’s go start trying on!"  The dressing room was 5 items at a time, so I put him in with the first 5 8’s.  One of them fit to his satisfaction.  I took four to the re-shelve rack and put one in the basket, and brought him 5 more.  None of them fit.  We went on like that for 25-30 pairs of jeans.  He was weeping.  I was getting new selections out of the 12’s and 14’s, then a 10 would fit and look great.  He put his own pants on in a huff and demanded to leave.  I told him he was a pussy because I’d been doing this since I was 11 and it barely even bothered me anymore.
"I feel fat and ugly and I don’t want to do this any more.  I don’t need pants and I don’t want pants and I hate this store."  As we walked out (he bought a pair of pants he didn’t even like particularly because they were the last ones he had tried on that were ‘decent.’), he gave me a big hug.  "I always just thought women were crazy," he whispered in my ear, "but that shit is bugshit insane.  I thought it was hard to find 28’s in the correct length.  I’m so sorry."

"This anti-vaxx movement has got a lot of things that I love: Star power, science denial, and hipster appeal, cause Penny-farthings and handlebar moustaches are cool, but nothing is more vintage than dying of Rubella."
