A man has perfectly called out the clothing industry's 'sexist' sizing with one powerful Facebook post.

When helping to clear out his girlfriend's wardrobe, Benjamin Ashton Cooper from Pennsylvania, America, noticed something odd about the clothing sizes.

Despite himself wearing a men's size small to medium, and even in some cases, a youth large, his girlfriend's size XL clothes were a perfect fit.

"So I'm helping my girlfriend clean out her closet (literally, shut up), and I noticed that a lot of what she was getting rid of was of the XL size," he captioned the photos.

"That didn't look right to me, and here's why: They fit me. I don't say that to be silly or ironic. It pisses me off.

"I am not an extra large man, and, more importantly, a woman my size is not an extra large woman. This bullshit right here is why we have 8-year-olds with eating disorders.

"This shit right here is why men shout 'fucking fat hog!' at even nominally curvy girls on the street. This is why men who think sexism is a 'myth' perpetuated by liberal pussies are Full. Of. Shit.

"Fuck body shaming. ‪#‎EndBodyShaming‬."


The response to Cooper's post has been huge - with flocks of users commenting supportive messages.
