I knew department stores like Target were pretty sexist to begin with, but I never really felt just how sexist they were until today, when I tried to buy some underwear.
I’ll start by saying that I am a 24 year old female, who is 5’2” tall. I’m gay, fairly flat-chested and a total tomboy. So I’m sure that it’s not too hard to imagine that I fit into the category of women who like to dress in clothes that apparently you can only wear if you have a penis. This in itself presents a problem, as that clothing is usually much too big for me. In fact, it’s often hard to find women’s clothes that fit because I’m so small.
I don’t know what the fuck people are thinking, but apparently if you’re not wearing some kind of bedazzled, summery piece of fabric in some god-awful, blinding colour with no sleeves, you are not a real woman and therefore do not need clothes.
