A romper for men exists, and Twitter cannot handle it

Yesterday, a thing happened.

A Washington Post bombshell dropped. President Donald Trump allegedly revealed classified intelligence to Russian government officials.

That’s a big thing, right?

Another thing happened as well: A men’s fashion brand invented a romper for men.

That’s, like… that’s not a big fucking deal. Right? I swear I’m right on this. It’s a piece of clothing that a man can purchase or not purchase, and that unless you one day run into a man wearing one and he asks your opinion on it, you can have it never directly affect your life.


Of those two things, which do you think Twitter lost more of its collective shit over?

Yeah. The man romper.


Maybe it is our inability online to give the correct amount of weight to things that don’t have an intrinsic relevance on our life that is problematic.

But also, you know, potentially the thing about the president revealing classified information. That might be A Thing too.
