Women's Shoulder Pads


Dear Shoulder Pads,

Thanks for making it harder for me to get a job.

When I used to go into business interviews against women, I always thought my broad shoulders presented my most distinct advantage. But once you came around, I lost my edge. Damnit.

Shoulder pads, you really level the playing field. Sometimes I see people, thinking, "I don't think that women has the testosterone she'll need to survive in this business environment," but then she puts on a blazer and those exact same people are like, "never mind."

Curved shoulders are cliche. Straight shoulders are straight up awesome.


Thank you, women's shoulder pads, thank you indeed.

Sincerely,

Fashion

  7. This is an outrage; women have no right having shoulder pads, I'm only just getting used to the idea of them having shoulders. We must take immediate action, bigger shoulder pads, made of steel, with testicles.....and guns.

  8. Dude. I think you've been watching a tad too much Project Runway.

  9. Well, why can't men wear shoulder pads as well? And give them a snazzy name? I don't mean the football kind. I mean the very same kind women wear!
