I disguised my large purse as a backpack. Nobody has figured it out yet.

I don't know if Fark gives awards for funniest "submitter-generated" link displays (in this case "And those shoes"), but this one has got to be up there.

I work with this guy who wears a fanny pack.  He's worn it every day for a decade.  It's still so weird to me, but nobody says anything.  Personally, I'm not interested in wearing any accessories.  A watch is a stretch for me.  I'm all about wearing as little crap as possible.

I thought we called those laptop bags these days? Or have we moved on from that? Nerd card and all.

It's truly amazing to me how strongly people feel about arbitrary, made-up things like "this particular style of bag" or "this particular style body covering" is for "girls" or "boys".

Kirk says he and his husband were waiting in line to get in the casino Friday night when the argument with security began.

Look I know I'm supposed to be enlightened and tolerant and I'm really working on it but a gay man turned away for carrying a purse is asking too much for me. It's a joke that practically writes itself so I'm going to opt out of this one before I end up with yet another temp ban.

They weren't so much concerned about the purse, but about the tricorder, phaser and tribble inside it.

It starts the minute they're born. Girl onesies are pink with butterflies and hearts. Boy onesies are blue with dinosaurs and trucks. I have a used fancy stroller in fantastic shape but the couples with boy babies don't want it because the purple trim is WRONG.

I'm so concerned and angry about what other people wear.
 
2020-08-10 11:09:05 AM  
Satchels, shoulder bags, man-purses are fine and people need to get over it.

However, I have also re-discovered the joy of cargo pants in the last couple years, something I thought was lost to me forever. They actually make hiking pants now with a normal fit so that you can wear them without looking like you just came from a Limp Bizkit concert. What a time to be alive!

Kilts don't have pockets so I carry my keys & stuff in a pouch in my sporran.
If people call me on it I retort by insisting that they STOP staring at my crotch, thankyouverymuch!

I used to carry a man-purse, for several years back in the 90's...dammit that thing was handy as hell. I called it my "adventure bag". Twas like a mobile survival kit.
I would always cause a stink if I got denied entry and women were always quick to speak up on my behalf.

These days I have minimized down to a tiny bifold as thin as a few credit cards.

I do not get the fanny pack "hate", they're just convenient and practical bags that attach to one's belt.

Jack knows what's what.  I was looking for a messenger bag (what I finally learned was the socially acceptable term for a man purse), and the one I wound up getting was the same one he used.  It's an awesome bag.

Came here to say this. Normally I would be outraged at this blatant discrimination. But I am even more outraged at these people's stupidity.

Yeah, which only goes to emphasize how made up and meaningless these "rules" actually are.

And if the absurd notion that some things are for girls and some are for boys were around, we wouldn't have the equally absurd notion of "non-binary" gender.

This. Why the Fark does it matter if a guy wants to wear a dress or carry a bag. Or if a woman wants to shave her head. This whole gender-specific shiat is ridiculous.
