While it’s true that girls can wear whatever they want in a music video, i hate seeing them with skimpy clothing on when the guys are wearing SUITS. That’s not equality. If the guys wear suits, the girls have to wear suits as well, but if they choose to twerk in bikinis, the boys have to wear speedos and wiggle their crotches while theyre at it.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

Perfect for murdering people.

I’m so glad we are all on the same page.

Kurdish men in Iran have launched a Facebook campaign to send a message: being a woman is nothing to be ashamed of. The "Kurd Men for Equality" campaign was started in response to a judge's ruling that forced a man convicted of domestic abuse to wear women's clothing as a form of public humiliation.

According to Global Voices, a local court in a Kurdish province of Iran ordered the man be escorted through the streets while wearing a red dress and hijab. Since then, Kurdish Iranians have organised on Facebook to speak out against the ruling, which they say is demeaning to women.
