‘My wife, on the other hand, you know, a fully grown adult, would appreciate a few more options,’ the TikToker says.
The Gender Clothing Debate
Zach Mander, known as @zach_mander on TikTok, has ignited a discussion on gendered clothing after questioning the lack of pockets in his wife’s attire compared to the abundance in his newborn son’s clothes.
In a recent video posted on TikTok, Mander humorously addressed the issue, delivering a message to those responsible for pocket design.
Highlighting the presence of deep pockets in his son’s infant shorts, Mander playfully remarked, “Like, he’s still developing the ability to see colors, so having somewhere to keep his car keys is a pretty low priority at the moment.”
He also added that his baby, still developing basic visual perception, had no urgent need for pocket space.
Over 1.2 Million Views
He emphasized the contrasting situation for his wife, saying, “My wife on the other hand, you know, a fully grown adult, she would appreciate a few more options.”
The video has garnered 1.2 million views as of May 10, with numerous viewers resonating with Mander’s observation.
Many commenters expressed astonishment that baby boys’ clothing often had better pockets than women’s apparel.
“It’s crazy to me that they give better pockets to baby boys than full-grown women,” one person commented.
Advocating for Pockets in Women’s Garments
Another echoed the sentiment, stating, “We must transfer the pockets, please! We got stuff to hold! Babies’ hands are sticky enough to count as pockets on their own!”
The video not only resonated with viewers, but also led many to thank Mander for shedding light on gendered clothing.
Several individuals expressed their gratitude for raising awareness and advocating for pockets in women’s garments.
“Thank you!! YES!! Women would like pockets, please!” one viewer remarked.
