That's a bit bloody sexist, M&S!

Popped in earlier to collect an order, and the collection point is next to Menswear. On my way through I noticed they had some "Stormwear" jeans - water resistant ones. "What a good idea! I'll head down to womens wear next and see what styles they do them in."

The answer? None. At all. Loads of different styles of jeans, but no Stormwear ones. Checking the app reveals they actually only make them for men. Why? Do women not get wet in the rain? Do we just stay inside when it drizzles? Or are our menfolk supposed to gallantly be on hand to shelter us under their umbrella whenever it rains?

And before anyone says "well you you could just buy the mens ones", no I can't, because they don't come in a small enough size.

Why don't women get to have dry legs??!

They don’t make pure cotton hoodies for women it appears, although they do for men. Why am l not worth pure cotton?

One thing I noticed is that women's 'basic' t-shirts are often a lot thinner, more translucent, and last nowhere as long as the men's basic t-shirts! I would buy the men's t-shirts if they weren't so damn long!
