We are accustomed to labeling many clothing items as such. We have “mandals,” “man purses,” and now, RompHim. This isn’t limited to fashion—eyeliner is changed to “guyliner” and Marc Jacobs even coined “#MalePolish” to pertain to his manicure.
One can argue that this is inclusiveness, but it defeats the purpose when you genderize them. More so when people point out that men who like mandals or man purses look “idiotic” and “gross.” That’s inequality right there.
Inclusiveness doesn’t start when you simply produce items for both genders. It’s when you stop categorizing them to discriminate another. Everyone has a choice on what they want to wear. It also helps that there are now gender-neutral lines sold at brands like Zara and H&M. So it’s time we drop the masculine or feminine tags and just call an item for what it is—sandals, rompers, and purses.
