Added DiffLines:

Fashion Is Fleeting After All And Everyone Has Memorised The History Of Fashion, Right? If ''That'' Doesn't Work, Take A Look At Technology They Are Using.

* It's called SuppressedMammaries and not '''[[MemeticMutation Binders Full of Women]]''' because first, we had the trope before Romney made that comment, and second, not everyone is familiar with the use of "binder" as a costuming item and would think that name meant what was actually implied by the meme (i.e. [[AffirmativeActionGirl transparent attempts to hire token women]])...or [[CreepySouvenir something even worse]].
