Hero Boyfriend Calls Out Women's Clothing Sizes for Fat-Shaming

This woman's boyfriend discovered what ladies everywhere have known all along: Women's sizing is the worst. 

We know it; you know it; and now this woman's boyfriend knows it. Women's clothing sizes are terrible. One store's medium is another store's extra large. One day you're a size 6 and the next you're a 12. And it's not because of the two donuts you ate last this morning. 

Benjamin Ashton Cooper discovered this for himself, when he tried on his girlfriend's extra-large clothes and found—much to his surprise—that they fit him. "I am not an extra large man, and, more importantly, a woman my size is NOT an extra large woman," he wrote in an R-rated Facebook post that has since gone viral. 

Shared nearly 250,000 times, Cooper's passionate post communicates a strong #EndBodyShaming message. This "right here is why we have 8 year olds with eating disorders," Cooper writes." This sh-- right here is why men shout 'f---ing fat hog!' at even nominally curvy girls on the street."

While we're less surprised by Cooper's discovery than he is, we completely agree with the message. End body shaming. It's time.

Also, don't call anyone a "f---ing fat hog," no matter what size they are. Yeesh.
