Sexist jokes are seldom legitimately funny, but they do get attention, as is proven by these chinos from Madhouse, a British discount clothing chain. Their pants' labels provide detailed washing and drying instructions, and under them, in bold letters, state, “OR GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN IT’S HER JOB”. As our girlfriend Amy Poehler would say: "Really???"
Not only is this label rude, but it's unclear. What if a straight lady or a gay man wants to wear these chinos? What if a transgender person wants to wear them? What if I’m dating a drag queen and we both want to wear them? WHO will wash our chinos?
