Chinese Make Strides Towards Gender Equality with Mall Bra-Removal Contest

Bras, bra hooks, removing bras. They’re not really so complicated, unless you have a penis, the magnetic pull of which somehow affects man’s ability to open simple clasps. Man’s ongoing inability to conquer the bra clasp was recently proven at a Chinese mall, as it has been time and time again in the backseats of cars around the world.

Earlier this month, a shopping mall in Guangzhou, China, held a contest to see who could unhook a series of women’s bras the fastest. Eight women stood on a stage wearing only a bra, boy shorts, face masks, and heels, while the male competitors frantically tried to unfasten their bras. Yes, it’s an image that makes one feel good about being a woman.

But, ladies, all is not lost. In an ironic twist, it was actually a woman, not a stubby-fingered man, who won the contest. The female competitor, who wished to remain anonymous, undid all eight bras in just 21 seconds. “I didn’t expect to win,” she said. “Maybe it was because I get so much practice in my everyday life.”
