10 Reasons We Can’t Get Behind Manx




You know they’re doing spanx for men now? Well it has to stop. Here’s why:

The main advantage of being a man—aside from the leg-up on salaries, jobs, running the planet etc—is the ability to be fat/ugly/old/an asshole and still get the girl. (See Hugh Hefner, Larry King, Donald Trump, every crypt-keeper-looking rock star.)

,

It’s bad enough that women have had to sausage themselves into a constrictive, breathing-impairing “compression” tube.

,

Women crave honesty from their men. If they’re lying about not having a beer gut and an ass, then finding out the truth in the bedroom will not end well.

,

Man in a girdle? Yes, we just threw up a little in our mouths, too.

,

No relationship can survive when both sides are constantly worrying about their love handles and thighs.

,

Men should not be wearing clothes that can be described with the words “sheer,” “tissue-thin,” “clingy,” or “revealing.”

,

Because this is not sexy.

,

The model in #7 did not need spanx to look like that, and your boyfriend won’t look like him either. Sorry.

,

Yes, there is a double standard—but frankly, we’re not that jazzed about women wearing spanx either.

,

Because nothing is hotter than a guy with so much confidence that he couldn’t care less about skinny jeans.
