The Dumbest Article Ever Written: "Your shirt is sexist and ostracizing"

No Comments
Sometime in October 2014, the ESA (European Space Agency) Successfully landed a spacecraft, known as the Philae onto a comet in space. This would have been one of the most pivotal accomplishments in human history that would change the world as we know it, had it not been for this this one dude's shirt.

In an article written on theverge.com (by two people for some odd reason) entitled: "I don't care if you landed a spacecraft on a comet, your shirt is sexist and ostracizing", (yes, someone actually wrote that title and took it seriously,) The writers claimed that the shirt, worn by project scientist Matt Taylor, represented "three steps back for mankind," as it would undoubtedly discourage women from joining the Aerospace industry. "This is the sort of casual misogyny that stops women from entering certain scientific fields." said one of the coked-up tumblr feminists who co-rote this article. They continue by claiming that the shirt "demeans 50 percent of the world's population." Because as we all know, these two people writing this one article CLEARLY represent all women on the planet with their discontent.

I  don't care if this article is almost a year old; this is the stupidest thing I have ever read. I mean, am I the only one seeing this? Am I the only fucking person who sees the significance of this man's accomplishment here? This guy could walk in to the interview wearing leather bondage gear while jerking off onto the microphone and still landed a spacecraft on a comet for Christ sake! Why the hell are these people so hung up on a guy's shirt when he just catapulted the human species further into the final frontier!?

The reactions on twitter and Tumblr have been so biased and over the top, you would think this shirt just jumped off of this man's body and started raping every woman in the United Kingdom.


The button-down top of systematic oppression he was wearing was created by Elly Prizeman; a friend of his, (who is also a woman,) and I'm sure she is just as surprised as I am that in the presence of such an amazing feat of technological accomplishment, there were people out there so in love with their own victim complex that they would go out of their way to be offended by this completely harmless shirt.
