I can remember a time when women’s pants all had pockets. It was nice to have a place to put my wallet, change or my hands. Over time, designers stopped putting pockets in a lot of women’s pants. Or worse, they put fake pockets. What’s the deal with that?
I know there are these stupid ideas that all women carry everything in their purse and that ladies don’t put their hands in their pockets, but that’s just nonsense. We’re not all the same. Even though I have a purse, sometimes I don’t want to carry it, or I want to have something in a pocket for easy access. The thing about putting your hands in your pockets, well, that’s just silly.
I find it rather annoying that they stopped putting pockets into pants. I like them, and I know there are other women that do too. Who was the moron who decided we didn’t need them anymore? I’ve got to say though, that the fake pockets are much more annoying. Either they put a flap that makes it look like a pocket but isn’t, or they have a sort-of pocket, that’s maybe an inch deep and totally useless, and usually at some odd angle where if it were real your shit would be falling out of it all the time.
Men aren’t the only ones who want pockets. They’re convenient. Styles really annoy me sometimes. Someone, somewhere, decides that their way is the right way and then all the clothes that get put out follow that trend. We don’t even have a choice in it. Like boot-leg jeans. They seem to be out of style now, but I wear boots all the time and I want pants that fit over them. I despise skinny jeans. I want to be able to go to a store and get what I want, not what some drug-addled designer thinks women ought to be wearing for the next 3 months until they change their mind and screw it all over again.
Men don’t have this issue as much. Sure, men’s styles change too, but stores always sell the old stand-bys. Guys can always buy basic slacks and jeans, they can always buy plain tees and simple button-downs. They’re not at the mercy of the idiotic fashion industry the way women are. Just like they’re not at the mercy of the ever-changing arbitrary sizing changes that women have to deal with. A guy who’s a 36 can always buy his size, he doesn’t have to try on everything in the store to figure out what a 10 actually fits like this year.
The fashion industry needs a serious kick in the ass. Women need to stop being sheep to the media and start making their desires heard. Does anyone ever stop to realize that the media and fashion industry are making women be what they want, and women are just following along like good little automatons? A reality check needs to be served to most of the population. Women need to start thinking for themselves rather than falling victim to whatever the latest trend is.
