I've a brilliant idea. How about everyone wears whatever the ******** they want to wear and stops shitting their pants worrying about what someone else is wearing, and we all collectively move on to something that actually matters?
I agree that people should not care about what one woman wears and what another woman does, etc. However, clothing is a big part of one's identity that spans more than just fashion industry trends or matching colors. People are going to judge others based on their clothing, whether there are academic discussions about it or not.
I do think that clothing does become a matter when politicians and the like "blame the victim" of rape if the person was wearing provocative clothing, for example.
Or let's take the issue of wearing head scarfs in France. Seyla Benhabib does a better job at explaining this than me, but basically there are many issues that come up when immigrant female Muslim students try to wear head scarfs in a classroom, which is supposed to be a sphere totally separate from religion and the like.
Then, as perhaps a post-colonial or an eco-feminist might argue, the problem with clothing production and the fashion industry hurts women in developing nations in textile industries. Blah blah blah blah blah, but long story short, there is a lot to be said or what can be said which can very well relate to "issues that matter".

!2 year olds are being used as hookers in the back of porn mags. But clothing is the big issues for Feminists. This is why I think they are jokes.


That sounds like a problem everyone should be giving a ******** about, not just feminists.


It is a lot but the thing I hear all the time is that they are for women's rights. How come the are the first to turn there back's on women. They flipped out on rush for what he said, never said a thing about what was said about Romney's wife. Sounds way to one sided to me. They sound more like they are just to push agendas and nothing more.

Wait, wut? Source on this please?

And this better refer to mainstream you can get on newsstands albeit covered up porn mags, not stuff you have to buy from shady men in dark alleys and will get you a prison term for having....
This is an interesting topic.
To begin with (starting with the Burqa) I believe that and its idea of oppression to be a different topic. Many other religions and cultures in general use some form of head coverings (nuns, Jews, buddhist nuns ect...) There is mroe to the Burqa than shielding them from the eyes of men and I don't believe it would be fair to label Islam as a sexist religion. Just food for thought though.

Secondly, while I don't make a big deal out of clothing I do believe that some may be geared to showing off for the eyes of men. But this is a problem that is mostly prevalent in modeling and when concerning younger people and pornographic content.
I think a woman should be free to wear what she wants without being criticized but the level of appropriatness of dress changes for both males and females as time goes on.

People think devoting a little time to talk about little things implies a complete lack of concern about bigger problems. This is why I think people are a joke.

Um...

What about the whole "I believe crazy things and call myself a feminist" thing that's been going on for a while?

Eh, skirts that run almost to hip level, shirts that let their breasts almost completely hang out and run up so high that they expose their rib-cage.

That sort of thing.


Eh, you had me till the last one. What the hell is so obscene about a belly button?
Probably more of a personal thing than anything. I don't really care if the belly-button is showing, but when it starts running up as high as the fork of your ribcage...eh.
So a slut is anything you don't like.

Brilliant. confused


I hereby vote that the new definition of "slut" be as follows: any woman or man with ears where their genitals are, and genitals where their ears go that lactates sulfuric acid from a bovine udder.

if you are not describing such a person, then you are using the word improperly.
Dang, if you'd said where noses go, Andalites would've been sluts.

would you believe I was originally going to say "noses," then thought about the possible Andalite connection, and decided Ax didn't need that s**t in addition to everything else?
