Internet Fights Over Post About Women Shopping In Pajamas

Some man who thought it was his place to police women posted a complaint on the Facebook page of Tesco, a British grocery store.

His complaint? Two women dared to disturb his wellbeing by wearing pajamas to the grocery store.

In a now-deleted post, Chris Cooke wrote,

Tesco responded to his post, saying,

Which is very generous because I would have responded with something like,

Of course, the internet jumped in to comment on the man's comment, thereby wasting everyone's time.

Joel Brackenbury, another man who feels entitled to give his opinion when nobody asked for it, copied Cooke's original post, writing,

Good for you, Joel Brackenbury: You get a quarter of a point for hitting the lowest possible level of being a basically decent, non-creeper man.

I can practically feel your patriarchal guilt melting away as you bask in the liberal likes.

Other people commented with their own opinions on strangers.


Many commented on the creep factor of taking a photo of strangers, while others commented on men's outfits they find offensive, which really does not help the whole "don't police other people" mentality.

Twitter users got in on the debate, because there's nothing users love more than jumping in where they have no place to be. In fact, #pyjamas trended in the UK (where they spell "pajamas" "pyjamas").


In the end, no one won, because this is the internet — where minds are never changed but opinions are blindly screamed into the void forever.
