When I got home it also dawned on me that NO men had received one which I was watching, although outfit stocks mens clothes as well as for women. I took to Twitter in fury when I got home and was sent a ton of notifications about how out of order it was. I was furious that a company which is SO big and has so much power treats people differently. I decided to run a Twitter poll which within 15 minutes had over 70 replies. The question was do people who are pretty get treated differently and the poll so far is showing 71% for yes and 23% for sometimes. So it is obviously a problem which happens. I was reached out to by Kirsty who told me she has relieved similar discrimination at a night club where women who were skinny and pretty were let in for free and those who weren't were let in for £20. Gross right? She also told me her and Amie had written posts about this issue and they both rang so true to me, I knew I had to share them with you.
Whilst I was replying to comments on Twitter about my experience I had a tweet from Outfit pop up asking me for my email, so I sent it to them. Shortly after I received an email back, the email stated "The promotion girls are not part of the Arcadia Group, and therefore aren't representatives of Outfit. This behaviour is not something we condemn." they also offered me a gift card for a gesture of good will. Something still doesn't sit right with me? I sent an email back with my concerns and also asking what the policy was on the orignal set of gift cards as some of those people were NOT the 50th, way past it, maybe it was the 50th prettiest people to enter the store? I don't know. I feel like this an issue which has gone on for TOO LONG and I don't feel like anybody should be made to feel any less worth than anybody else due to their weight, colour, whether they wear make-up, or if they are worthy of shopping in a particular shop. I just wanted to say thanks to all of the bloggers who have reached out to me this afternoon, you've made me feel so much better about myself.
