However, apparently a random guy on Twitter doesn’t get it.
It all started with Bree Mae, an activist and educator who tweeted that, “Wearing men’s clothing is so much BETTER an experience, just physically, that I consider it self-care. I reach for it on harder days.”
That seems about right, doesn’t it ladies? Who wouldn’t want to put on some giant comfy sweatpants or their boyfriend’s oversized T-shirt on those days when you’re just not feelin’ it? And sometimes you wish you could just wear those things all the time.
Jared also understands his own personal privileges. He tweets, “This is called ‘privilege,’ Brolossus of Rhodes. Privilege is basically all the things you’ve never had to worry about. From your profile pic, you’re a white male. So am I! We get to play on the default setting, mustang, Apollo, he who walks among the corn.”
Up until the late 1600s everyone, including men, carried bags around to stow their belongings. At that point, however, the bags became part of men’s clothing and were instead sewn in for practicality. During the French Revolution, women’s clothing became tighter and there was nowhere to fit pockets, so they continued to carry bags for their possessions. The idea at the time was that men are out doing things while women don’t need the practicality because they’re too busy looking pretty!
