I hate how men are not allowed to carry a bag of any kind, without it being called a “man purse”. It’s not fair that women are the only ones aloud to carry a large amount of items conveniently. And men are left with carrying everything in the four pockets on there pants.

I don’t even know why people mistakenly call in a purse? Because its not. Here is the definition.

pursea small bag for money (2) : a receptacle (as a pocketbook) for carrying money and often other small objects

I still carry my wallet, keys, and cell phone in my pants pockets. The bag is just for anything I would like to take with me, that wouldn’t fit into them. So by definition it’s not really a purse.

So the next time you see a man (me) carrying a bag, think twice before calling it a “man purse”. Think of a more creative why to make fun of his resourcefulness, like calling it a “fag bag” or a “pussy sack”.
