Comic for Wednesday, Sep 21, 2011

I've been mentioning purses a lot lately in comic commentaries, and it has resulted in a fair amount of feedback regarding women's clothing and some of the common shortcomings thereof, namely small, or even fake, pockets.

Now, I like pockets. One of my favorite things about fall is that I inevitably have access to more convenient pockets. My flannel and sweatshirts have pockets, my jackets have pockets, pants... have the same amount of pockets, but still! The amount of random stuff I can comfortably carry upon my person drastically increases, and I appreciate that.

As such, when I heard a common problem for women were pants with ridiculously small pockets, it annoyed me. I've passed on the purchase of otherwise comfortable pants due to a lack of decent pocket space, but it's always been fairly easy for me to find pants with decently sized pockets.

Anyway, if a gender related issue annoys me, then it's going to annoy Susan even more. I'm not sure if Susan will wind up with an abundance of pockets in the actual canon, but it's tempting.
