Washing instructions: "Give It To Your Woman"

9 March 2015

There's been some furrowed brows over a sportswear company who printed some labels for football shirts, where the washing instructions were 'GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN - IT'S HER JOB'

This, of course, has seen a lot of people shrieking in disgust. Not the people who think the message is a bit off, but rather, people who say things like 'feminazis' and the like.

Salvo Sports made the shirts for Indonesian Super League side Pusamania Borneo, which as you can see, had a label that said: "Washing instructions: Give this shirt to a woman. It’s her job."

The response from people who thought it wasn't a particularly nice thing to have on a shirt, was basically 'this seems sexist' or 'bloody hell', which of course, was met with the most hysterical set of people on the internet - those who think they're not at all hysterical who like shouting at feminists (even though many of those criticising the label hadn't said if they were or weren't feminists at all).

Among all this, Salvo Sports said sorry on their Twitter account: "The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable"

"There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes"

Boom! There you go! Some lovely back-pedalling from a company saying 'no, no, no, no - we meant that women should wash the clothes because women are the best! Loving your work ladies!' Meanwhile, the internet debates about what can and can't constitute a joke and where people hysterically shout at each other, claiming to not be hysterical themselves.

"Hey! Get women to wash your clothes!" is a rubbish joke though.

    No wonder this site has gone down the shitter. Its clearly run by SJW progressives who base everything on their 'feelz'. Musn't let people have opposing views to feminism now eh?
