There is a new Kickstarter in the world that has, as of this writing, pulled in over $45,000 — 4.5 times its stated goal. That $45,000 could have been spent on so many things but no, it is being spent on this Kickstarter project: The RompHim. It is imperative that you do not contribute to this Kickstarter any more than already has been.
The RompHim is a romper for men because the only sure things in this world are death, taxes and that men will find a way to co-opt a thing for women but will be too nervous in their own masculinity to not change the name to something supremely stupid.
The Kickstarter campaign promises that it “may just be the start of a fashion revolution,” which sounds like a violent threat.
The romper, as you’re doubtless aware, is a one-piece t-shirt-and-shorts getup. It’s that thing your girlfriend wears to Lollapalooza. Or she did, back before she broke up with you because you donated money to the RompHim™ Kickstarter.
“Is it a romper specifically designed for men?” the site asks. “Sure, but it’s so much more.” Well, no. It’s definitely not. But it’s made so much more than it should have (and it costs so much more too, but that’s a separate issue) and it needn’t make any more. For your sanity, for your wardrobe and for the sake of civilization, do not donate another cent to this campaign.
