One user questioned the gender roles in society in his tweet. She wrote that there would not be a problem if someone dressed up as a “shirtless woody.”
“sexualized” meanwhile it’s just chaps? which literally fits the western theme of being a cowgirl? it’s a toy for crying out loud. if a man dressed as a shirtless woody there would be no uproar at all
