[Fashion/Opinion] "RompHims," Are You Feeling Them? [Written By Shae McCoy]

It seems like every day we are expressing our likes and dislikes for something new. Whether it’s Trump, chicken, or going on walks in the park, we all take it to social media and for a few days, we blab about our thoughts, beliefs, and other shit. I got on Facebook last night only to find that there was something new to discuss, the Romphim; allegedly a male version of the romper. I was wondering why and where this sudden reemergence and relevance of the fashion came from, but once I saw what my facebook friends were saying I instantly just wanted to sit back and be quiet. Engaging in Facebook debates nowadays is something like a sport to some, and I simply don’t have the time or energy.

When I finally got to see a few pictures of the romphims I didn’t think anything of it. I actually like them and the people I saw wearing them actually looked quite pleasing. Leave it to social media to drag something until it doesn’t exist in our minds anymore though. The first comment I saw about the romphim on my timeline was “Nah, that’s gay, men don’t wear rompers.” Hello! If you rewind the years back you will see that you have been wearing rompers. If you’ve worn overalls, dicky jumpsuits, etc.. then you have experienced the romper in some form.

I actually took my own time to google about the craze, and come to find out, Romphim is a project that was launched on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform for creativity.

I was mostly here for the memes as they bought tears of joy to my eyes, because they were hilarious and it kind of showed men how annoying it is when we get hit on for what we are wearing with corny pick-up lines.  Amongst the “gay” comments and more, I was able to find my light at the end of the tunnel. I did that just by not giving a fuck about what people were saying. Everyone is going to have an opinion, doesn’t mean I have to agree or like it.. I’m just wondering why what someone else is wearing is anyone else’s business, but the person wearing the actual garment? Are you on the same page? I feel like if we all just minded our business the world would be a better place, but hey, society.
