One man has just found out something about women’s clothes that most women grapple with everyday – arbitrary size labels.
Every woman who ever goes clothes shopping probably knows ‘medium’ at one store is a ‘large’ at another. One day she’s wearing a size 8 and the next day she’s dressed in size 16. And nope, that extra piece of cake or skipping breakfast has nothing to do with it.
Benjamin Ashton Cooper was helping his girlfriend clean out her closet when he noticed something about her clothes which he says “pissed him off”.
The Pennsylvanian found some of his girlfriend’s clothing had “XL” on the labels so he decided to try them out.
“I noticed that a lot of what she was getting rid of was of the XL size,” he wrote in a Facebook post that has garnered more than 250,000 shares. “That didn’t look right to me, and here’s why: They fit me.”
Cooper noted that he has a slim build and is no way “extra large”.
“I am not an extra large man, and, more importantly, a woman my size is NOT an extra large woman,” he continues.
“This b******t right here is why we have 8-year-olds with eating disorders.”
Cooper ends his post by calling out body shaming with the hashtag #EndBodyShaming.
