Benjamin Cooper

Last week I shared a post from Benjamin Cooper on the Girls Can’t WHAT? Facebook page. It was an incredible rant about how he was helping his girlfriend clean out her closet and he decided to try on one of her shirts labeled as an XL. Here’s what he said (the clean version): So I’m…
