    You don’t see men carrying female handbags and wearing high heels around?

    wow, those seeker sneakers are pretty way out there...

    but the fact that they are being made means there is a market (or the company thinks there is a market) for this stuff, and all the more power to them

    The issue here is dehumanizing women by calling them female while not doing the same with men.

    I either have some exciting news or disturbing news for you.

    Exciting: When you leave school people don't kick the life out of you for what you wear.
    Disturbing: If you've left school and people are kicking the life out of you for what you wear, you're probably hanging out with the wrong people or in the wrong areas.

    I absolutely love those comic print Doc Marten-esque ones. My wife thinks the Decepticon platform boots are awesome, and laughed delightedly at the Soundwave purse. As a licensed collection goes, these are super fun and not as embarrassing as one might think.

    Those Soundwave Smackdown boots are incredible. Alas, they don't do them in my size. The Mixtape in Disguise bag is sick as well.

    Any of them can be if you're manly enough.

    Yes.

    Not at all … but add a deception logo, replace some of the spiked area with fake bullets, and they could be Megatron “inspired”

    A lot of these are just, oof. And how many people are actually likely to use any of this stuff outside of, say, conventions?

    You think the term “female” is dehumanising to women?

    This is actually not up for debate. There's a word to describe female humans, it's women. Going out of your way to use poor English when referring to women's products while not doing the same for men in the same sentence is dehumanizing.

    These are definitely not marketed toward older fat dudes like myself. Way too out there in style, too expensive, and too feminine for my tastes.

    However, I love the fact that this line exists for females looking for some Transformers style that isn't just a printed t-shirt or handbag. There was some thought and effort put into making these distinctly feminine. Of course, males who appreciate and have the ability to wear these designs can benefit as well!

    Whoever designed these have a hidden talent, let\'s just hope they keep it hidden.

    I guess I'm going to be an old fat bearded guy looking feminine rocking that Soundwave bag then. Goes well with the long haird I guess.
