Why I don't give a DAMN if my clothes are "Man-repelling"
Shane Watson has written another article that makes me roll my eyes. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/life/is-your-new-seasons-wardrobe-guilty-of-man-repelling/
It starts out almost being a celebration of women, talking about how women at the pointy end of fashion are not dressing to impress the opposite sex, and then swiftly nose-dives into sadness and despair.
Even the term "Man-repellers" makes me want to barf. Lady, get a grip. If headphones don't work to repel men, let's be honest, nothing will. (but I digress)
Shane wails about how hard it is to walk the tightrope between clothes our girlfriends will admire and the ones men either appreciate or don't detest.
I suggest that Shane gets a sodding grip and stops worrying what the hell people think of her and dress purely for herself and wear what the hell makes her happy.
It is a hell of a lot more freeing than standing in front of a wardrobe each day worrying about whether Susan from accounts will find your cardigan cute or not.
Plus, Shane, if you stand around in changing rooms "chatting about what will and won't fly with the average bloke" by all means, crack on, but you don't speak for me when you say we all do it.
Me in a changing room.
"Does this fit?"
"Cool, let's go and grab lunch"
I don't give a shit whether what I am wearing is tickling a dude's pickle or not. Do I like it? I'm GODDAMN WEARING IT SHANE AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO OR WRITE THAT WILL STOP ME.
Another thing, Shane. I can assure you now, we have NOT committed to memory universal list of clothes men find challenging.
Challenging? What the fuck does she mean by challenging. Front-loading bras, THEY are challenging. LOAFERS? HOW THE HELL ARE LOAFERS CHALLENGING?
Shane has annoyed me, can you tell?
Please, read the article, am I wrong? Is Shane just being deliberately inflammatory?
How are Loafers challenging?
Please I beg you, let me know.
