Beware Of The Murse: Man Bags Causing Back Pain For Dudes

Listen—can you hear that? It’s the sound of the proverbial gender playing field being leveled. Us ladies are no longer the only ones with back problems thanks to slinging heavy purses over our shoulders. According to the British Chiropractic Association, there has been a 21 percent increase in the number of man bags (murses?) sold in the past year—think Cristiano Ronaldo and his trusty Gucci bag. This spells major back trouble for dudes since the average guy is now carting around 13.7 pounds worth of stuff in his bag. “Man Bags are now a necessity for many men during their daily lives, but they could cause back and shoulder pain from prolonged stress,” says an association spokesperson. “We need to become more savvy in how we use them, whilst learning to read our bodies and know when we’re placing too much pressure on certain points.” Amen to that. But when men start complaining about high-heel pain, I am outtie. [Telegraph UK]
