The wife of a Norwegian football player posted a picture of her four days after birth in her underwear prompting outrage from some women including one writer who questioned whether they were the same species.
Tell me again how thin shaming doesn’t exist.
I’m not going to argue that this woman has a privileged lifestyle - she can dedicate herself to fitness knowing full well that all her necessities are well provided for. And she has great genetics - her baby bump was tiny.
However, that dumb broad that basically told Soccer Mom she has no right to show off her beautiful body because she feels ashamed of herself for not measuring up to her and pulled the idiotic “this is why young girls get eating disorders” card… yeah. Aabel needs to grow up and act like a 32 year old woman already. It seems that it’s okay to be proud of your body and be beautiful and post a hundred nude pics as long as you do not fit in the conventional standards of beauty. This is ridiculous. Should I tell people who’re more intelligent than me to not post pictures of their engineering or math or whatever degrees because I feel ashamed of not being a good student? Should I tell girls with green eyes to wear sunglasses 24/7 so I don’t feel sad I was born with dull brown eyes?
Soccer mom doesn’t need to give any motherfucking reasons to display her own body to anyone. If mom blogger doesn’t like it, she can close the tab and move on. SM wasn’t shoving the picture right under her nose and calling her names. If Aabel is so embarrassed of her own body, she should put down the McDonald’s burgers, start eating clean, training hard and working on her own insecurities. Everyone has insecurities, and most of us deal with them privately without demanding others coddle us like little babies until we stop hurting, for fuck’s sake. Can’t guarantee Aabel could look like Soccer Mom, but perhaps she’ll learn something about discipline and loving your body by taking care of it instead of having to tear down others to make yourself feel good. I know I did.
A short documentary about one of Japan’s fashion subcultures: shironuri. I love her particular style because it’s simply so beautiful, almost like a form of avant garde to me. She just creates a total fantasy with her clothing that you can’t help but look at!
I am so over hearing “But you are too skinny to be a belly dancer!”. I think this may sometimes be an attempt at a compliment but other times its followed by “You don’t have a big enough belly! Ha …
"Politeness has become so rare that people mistake it for flirtation."
In the year 2000…
Some of this isn’t too off base…. I mean, I’d wear the jumpsuit (minus the cape).
I totally wear this all of the time hahahaha
No, I did not disappear!
It has been a crazy month. My laptop decided to completely die and so my blog was put on the back- burner. But hopefully I can get back into the swing of things!
I saw this on my Facebook this morning. (If you can’t be arsed clicking, it’s a seven year old girl’s descriptions of the dresses of various Emmy award nominees. Some positive, some negative.) Now, granted, some of the descriptions are amusing, but I felt a little sad at the thought that a seven…
An interesting documentary on Haute Couture, handmade pieces of clothing.
What I have always found interesting about clothes and fashion is how people tend to look down upon it as something superficial, pointless, or vain. I suspect that this has something to do with it being considered a feminine pursuit. Our culture tends to see any hobby that was traditionally feminine as frivolous, or even worthless. People don’t bat an eye when someone spends money on a painting by Picasso or if a museum spends thousands to acquire a beautiful statue. But clothes? People become vicious, demonizing anyone who has an interest in looking a certain way. I think that there is a difference between people interested in fashion. Some people do it only impress others; some people do it simply to express themselves.
