Girlpants… Because Women Deserve REAL Pockets

ComedyOff BeatWomen's Rights 23 Comments

Girlpants is one of our favorite comics (circa April 2014) by David Willis for his Dumbing of Age webcomic series about college freshmen in a co-ed dorm at Indiana University, starring a Christian homeschooled girl and her atheist best friend.

Thanks for making us belly laugh David, and for giving our false-pocket plight a much needed voice and platform. Women deserve REAL pockets!

    That’s why real men put their hands behind the waistband.

    I had no idea women didn’t have real pockets. Why?

  • Dave Nielsen

    They don’t need real pockets, that’s what a purse is for – men don’t have those. Nuff said.

      I call BS. If I had pockets (and when I do), I dont carry a purse.

      • Dave Nielsen

        I call BS. Unless you’re a giant you couldn’t fit everything that goes in a purse in your pockets.

          When I have pockets, all I carry is my phone, wallet, backup charger, and lip balm. When I carry my purse, I add a lighter and pocket knife.

          • Dave Nielsen

            I was with you until you said backup charger.

        • C-Alice

          Wallet, phone, keys. That’s it for me.

          • Dave Nielsen

            I call BS.

          • C-Alice

            On what basis?

          • Dave Nielsen

            No woman would be able to carry so little. Are you preparing to transition?

          • C-Alice

            Uh, nope. I’m a bit of a tomboy, I guess, but I don’t think there’s a real male hiding underneath. In fact, I’m somewhat limited in what phones I can buy because I refuse to get a phone so big that it won’t fit in my pocket, and I will not learn to have a purse dangling off my shoulder just so I can carry my phone. I don’t wear makeup, so I don’t have to carry any accoutrements for fixing my face. I run a comb through my hair and tie it up – I’ve never needed the comb after that point. I don’t even know what all else women carry in their purses. I hardly use cash, so the 3 lbs. of pocket change is also unnecessary. The only other thing is the occasional supplies for *that* time of the month. If you have real pockets, that’s no trouble either.

          You should see what some guys carry around in their pockets.

    • Theo Louk

      People don’t need real feet, thats what shoes are for. This kind of argument? Seriously? You can do better…

      • Dave Nielsen

        That’s not even close to remotely equivalent. You may in fact be retarded.

        • Ashleigh

          The reason they don’t have pockets is because it’s assumed that women would rather have a “sleek” or “slendering” look to their pants than that pesky, useful pocket. It might make the pants not lie perfectly straight against our hips or thighs. Creating *gasp* a slight bump or bulge in the fabric and thusly shattering the illusion that women are not perfect. The horror. The horror.

      If men want to carry around a small bag, there are plenty of socially acceptable ways to do so.

      If women want to use pockets instead of a bag, they’re generally out of luck.

      • Dave Nielsen

        There are no socially acceptable ways for men to do that.

        • Kithanye

          There is if people would stop forcing ridiculous gender stereotypes.

          Feminism: Not just for women.

            Feminism: Not just for women.

            It’s also for emasculated “men.”

          Never heard of a backpack?

          • Dave Nielsen

            A pack…for your back?! Genius!
