Career dresses barely cover your bum.

I was shopping for dresses online at Forever21 (rare, trust me) and I click on the “career” category. These are the dresses that Forever21 categorizes as career:

For what career are these appropriate?

Leggings are too casual to wear to work so how are you supposed to cover up the rest of your thigh?

In my opinion, these are nice shirts. Nice shirts you’d probably also put a sweater over for any career world. Well, not any career but, you know, the careers where your pay isn’t crumbled $1 bills.

My favorite has to be Ms. Retro Geometric Shirtdress in the bottom row, center. Not only is this dress barely skimming the bottom of her tush, but it’s a nude color. Just in case the being mostly naked isn’t enough, let’s look actually naked from a distance.

Nothing says “respect me” at the office like accidentally showing the bottom of your butt cheeks.

Women are not taught or expected to understand men in American culture

Before I potentially make anyone upset with the following, I’ll kick this discussion off by admitting that I have always been too selfish in relationships to bother with what the other person thought or wanted. I’m trying to change that.

Women are taught that we’re emotional (and that “it’s ok”), and that men aren’t. And men are taught not to be open about their emotions (big boys don’t cry and all that). So women are constantly taking up all the emotional support in a relationship and neglect their men.

It’s tough for women to understand how men operate emotionally because women just talk talk talk about it (to death) and men would rather not. It’s sets up this puzzle for women. It also makes it hard for women to recognize when their men are upset, and/or what could be upsetting them.

What’s the recovery plan?
