  • what’s with the ‘for dudes’? My mother and sister would love some of these, while my husband wouldn’t have much use for them. Plus the fact that moustache pattern stuff is more popular with teenage girls than anyone else from what I’ve seen LOL
    I agree with Ali too – please don’t imply physics is just for dudes. If you’re going to be doing one ‘for girls’ too, I better see some awesome science ones. And not just a bunch of dresses and handbags.
    Please please sort suggestions by theme rather than gender stereotypes.

  • “Fabrics for dudes” and the first design is “physics illustrations”. That’s right: physics is a subject for MEN.
    I despair.
