i need to do more here
The main reason I’m having another go with this blog is something that happened to me earlier on today, I’d like to have somewhere a bit more structured to write about things I feel passionately about and I think this may be the place to do that.
Today on my walk home there were two guys walking behind me, they looked about my age maybe a bit older(19/20 at most) and for a good 5 minutes they just shouted things at me from behind. The longer I went on ignoring them, the more persistent they became until eventually I stopped, turned around and told them to leave me alone only to be told “fuck off you stuck up sket I wasn’t even talking to you *idiotic laugh at insulting a female when there’s not a single other person on the street*”.
I was absolutely appalled, not only at what they had been shouting at me in the first place but at the fact that when I responded, I was aggressively insulted. THAT IS NOT OKAY WITH ME. I didn’t keep my head down and keep walking, allowing them to continue with the stream of objectifying harassment, I stuck up for myself and so they became aggressive. It made me think back to the other occasions where this has happened to me as well as plenty of other stories that I’ve heard/read of similar things happening to other girls and women and I ended up completely full of rage realising that too often the response is “oh well boys will be boys”. I’m sorry, i wasn’t aware that harassing women on the streets was a quality that all males are born with? Oh wait, that’s because it isn’t. It’s a disgusting product of today’s society that allows so many men to act disrespectfully and aggressively towards the girls and women in society.
It isn’t a matter of boys will be boys, neither is it a matter of “picking the wrong girl”. So many times i’ve heard things like “oh, picked the wrong one there!” in reference to a woman standing up for herself against blatant misogynist bullshit, or “one day you’ll pick the wrong girl and get yourself into some real trouble”. No. There is no “right girl” to target with this awful objectifying behaviour, and the trouble already exists in the fact that the majority of men in today’s society feel that it is both necessary and acceptable to act so badly and often aggressively towards women, through derogatory and offensive behaviour.
There will never be a right time, place, or girl, to target this way. Ever.
So I eventually decided on the beaaaautiful cannes mini dress by Hell Bunny and i must say, i felt fantastic all night. I wore a petticoat underneath and it was just such a lovely fit and I wish i could … Continue reading
i always try to get into wordpress, i’ve just struggled to find the enthusiasm for it i suppose.
For my last prom i wore a blue gingham halterneck circle dress by Dolly Dagger. I still adore it but this time around i’m looking for something a bit more bombshell. Anyone got any tips on where i can find 50s style prom dresses?
woweeeeee this is amazing!
As someone who is obsessed with the 50’s and 60’s I am always so delighted when I see modern editorials embracing my favorite eras of fashion and glamour. Thanks to tumblr I can always count on seeing the best of pinup editorials that travel at light speed and end up on my dash. I just spotted this one today and just had to feature it on my blog. This wonderful Pin-up Story was shot by Marc Philbert for Grazia France February 2013 issue. Model, Jenny Knoch, did a great job capturing the essence of the flirty 50’s in scantily clad lingerie ensembles that were styled to perfection thanks to Stephanie Brissay. The entire spread is adorable and god..what a relief, as I have seen so many modern editorials done so wrong. The makeup, the hair, and the outfits of this editorial is just perfect and so inspiring. I would love…
