‘Give It to Your Woman, It’s Her Job.’
Sometimes old news shocks me; if you haven’t heard about this, you’ll want to sit down and read on. A pair of pants in England has very unique, bold washing instructions: “Give it to your woman, it’s her job.”
Emma Barnett was cleaning her apartment when she found the label in her boyfriend’s pants.
“If the comment had been remotely funny, I would have been the first to laugh and shrug it off, as it really wouldn’t have bothered me enough to photograph it, tweet it and then write about it,” Barnett wrote in a London newspaper.
Madhouse, the men’s store that sold these pants, said the care instructions for the product had not been proofed by their buyers, nor was it “‘instigated or ordered’ by the store.” Madhouse also stated that it was “clearly meant as a joke.”
Some people found this care label hilarious, while many others were completely offended. I might have laughed, but I probably wouldn’t buy another pair – it’s a pretty sexist comment to make, even for kicks and giggles.
