This Guy Just Tried On His GF's Top, And Realized Everything That Is Wrong With Women's Sizing

This is mansplaining that we actually want to see more of!

A guy in Pennsylvania just took to Facebook to rant about how crazy women’s clothing sizing is (um, yes!). After helping his girlfriend clean out her closet, Benjamin Ashton Cooper noticed that a lot of her clothing was size “XL.” What’s wrong with that? Well, when Benjamin put the clothes on they totally fit–and he’s a slim dude! Here’s exactly what went down:

This guy is my hero. Not only did he probably make his girlfriend feel SO much better (if she’s as small as him, she was probably confused about having to buy XL clothing, too!) but he also called out a seriously annoying issue when it comes to women’s clothing:  If clothing that is clearly SMALL is marked XL, what are girls who actually need an L or XL supposed to do? Clearly their sizes are not available in these particular styles (or, if they are, they are also sized incorrectly. Who has time to try on a million tops to find their right size??). This isn’t about vanity–it’s about women not being forced in to this tiny little window of “normal” sizing that is so clearly just for sizes 0-4.

Ok, rant over. Go back to being awesome, Benjamin and other supportive boyfriends like him.
