Partners stealing other partners' clothing — particularly oversized, snuggly hoodies with remnants of their perfume/cologne scent — has been a longstanding problem plaguing our nation. In September, men organized together online and fought back.
#TakeHerHoodie was a chance for boyfriends to seek revenge and steal their partner's clothes this time.
Unfortunately, it seems this effort has not significantly curtailed the problem. Ramoni Overton, 19, and her boyfriend, Desmond Young, 18, have been dealing with this very issue in their otherwise perfectly solid relationship.
Over the weekend, Young gave Overton a bag of hoodies, sweatpants, and other comfy clothes he no longer wore.
Her tweet about her boyfriend's donation has gained a lot of attention online, with most people pretty inspired by it.
But there were a handful of people who voiced their concerns over the fact that the donated clothes will no longer hold the unique scent of their significant others.
Overton said boyfriend clothing donations are a trend are becoming more common among her friend circles. Bydneyy Raggs, a 19-year-old from Texas, chimed in to say that her boyfriend also had the idea to do this months prior.
Raggs told BuzzFeed News her boyfriend "got fed up" after she'd habitually take his clothes, so he donated a bin of some of her favorite items. He then went out and bought new clothes.
While this appears to be a thoughtful and creative solution to an ever-growing problem, there are still gaping cracks.
When asked if they will now officially stop taking their partner's hoodies, both Overton and Raggs responded with a resounding "nope."
"I'm always gonna steal his clothes," Overton concluded.
"Of course I'll never stop stealing his clothes!," Raggs added.
