They must have been really small if everybody noticed..
3- I fail to see how forgetting a shirt as a male would make you cool, but speaking of double standards, this reminds ms of a sign at a bar I once saw (and many others likely have too): Guys- No shirt, no shoes, no service. Girls, No shirt, no problem, free drinks. :P Sorry, had to share. ;P
It's funny, I assumed the shirts must have been too large (I'm thin and always have the problem of shirts being too big). But you could interpret too large of shirts as fitting, just not fitting properly. Also I wish it was clear whether OP was male or female. I'm just going to imagine that OP is a hot female who is well endowed (which is why the shirts wouldn't fit) and she wasn't wearing a bra. That would be so damn hot.
Then what was the point of your comment? To tell me something you didn't know? It was obvious that he or she left the room shirtless, I don't know why you told me that. I think it's sexist to assume OP is female. I'm a guy and I'm sure I'd be more embarrassed than most females to walk out of a dressing room shirtless and have people staring at me. Since I'm a man I'm not allowed to be embarrassed? Why couldn't a male have an FML about this?
The way you worded your post you made it seem like OP left the fitting room with a tight shirt on and without a bra. I never said a male couldn't get embarrassed of this, but naturally a female doesn't walk around without a shirt like a lot of men do. It's obviously more common for a man to do that than a woman.
Sexist? Just look at your response to this FML. Every woman reading it just went 'ugh' and rolled their eyes in unison. People are allowed to make assumptions just as males are allowed to be embarrassed by this situation, however given the circumstances, a female would more likely feel more shame in this circumstance and therefore be in a position to post this- thus the assumptions. They're not baseless.

I don't see how the wording of my post made you think that. In fact, the part about tight shirts not fitting and loose shirts not fitting properly was meant to mean that tight shirts literally won't fit on the person, whereas loose shirts fit on the person, just it is not a proper fit. So a shirt too tight to fit on someone couldn't be worn, as it doesn't even fit on. And the part about hoping she was without a bra was because if she wasn't wearing a bra her breasts would be visible (which they would not if she was wearing a shirt). I really don't see how you got what you got from what I said at all. And most women walk around half naked every day, so walking out in a bra for a top isn't that different from their everyday wear.
21-- While some states legally allow for a woman to be topless, it is not commonly practiced. In fact, while some might enjoy this, others would be very offended and possibly even call the cops. All the above fanfare would not be relevant for a topless male (duh), which is why we assume the OP was a woman--because it'd be way more embarrassing for a woman, culturally (notwithstanding personal body confidence issues, which can be had by either sex).
Please don't think I misunderstood your comment. I know what you meant about the nature of what a shirt 'fitting' entails- it's not entirely true to say your post was sexist, but it was from the lips of a mysoginist. I was making a generalization when I made my comment, and just as you don't have to justify the nature of your comment because everyone has the right to free speech, neither do I. You're a bit butthurt. Why don't you post some more responses?
I don't care what any of you say, I was and am right and you were and are wrong. None of you have made any real argument against anything I said. And I am anything but butt hurt. I am laughing at how predictable and simple-minded your responses were. It's nice to see sexism is still alive and shouted as loudly as ever. It's also nice to see that anyone who expresses a valid opinion that isn't what culture's sexist attitudes agree with gets targeted. I'm proud that I'm willing to state both my opinion and facts that I know people will disagree with due to their prejudices. The fact that you say my responses make me look more and more foolish is the equivalent of a child sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting "I can't hear you" over and over. I'm sorry if one comment about liking the idea of a large breasted woman topless makes me a "mysoginist" (sic). I'm assuming you claim I was objectifying women, because I can't see how you could claim I hate women. If you're not just trying to be argumentative and actually felt women were objectified by my statement, I'm sorry. It wasn't my intent to do so. At least my responses weren't sexist, like some of those arguing against me. Also I'd like to say that most women who identify as feminists aren't true feminists (as they don't really believe in gender equality), and most women who don't identify as feminists are true feminists (as they do believe in gender equality). This is from personal experience, but I think anyone with an open mind would see it's true.
The_true_batman, when so many people tell you you are wrong, I think it's a good idea to question yourself. It doesn't mean you are definitely wrong, but still, it could be a good clue. It's ok to be wrong about something you said, it doesn't mean that everything you do or say is wrong, it's really not a biggi. It doesn't even means that what you're thinking is wrong, maybe you just didn't expressed it the right way. Most intelligent people are probably the ones that can accept when they are wrong, others just never learn from their mistakes. But yeah, maybe you are right and they are all wrong, that happens too.
I don't understand your comment? Is it just me?
