A pair of pants has started a debate on Twitter regarding what's funny and what's outright sexist.

Emma Barnett, the digital media editor for the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph tweeted a picture of the washing label on a new pair of pants her boyfriend bought. The label gives wearers basic cotton instructions, and the tip, "or give it to your woman, it's her job."

The company that sold the pants, Madhouse Fashion, tweeted back that it had failed to proof the care instructions, which it says were "clearly meant to be a joke," and "will be more careful in the future."

Many women aren't taking it as a joke at all, saying that the label is degrading, disgusting, and insulting.

What do you think?
