Things that bug me...

Rippy the Razor
A random thing that bugs me, brought up by nothing at all, are the checked-shirt wearing, baseball capped uniform lesbians. It drives me nuts on a bunch of levels:

First off, they fucking flock together, and there's this identical little coterie of Bobbsey Decuplets. Add to that the fact that it's so completely drab and uninteresting. I understand, vaguely, that there's some subtle protest against being too concerned with appearance or having to dress the way a woman "should" or whatever. Yeah, fine, but do you have to make your statement by being as bland and unintereting as possible? I don't care about women wearing man's clothing or vice versa (having the occasional vice of being the versa myself). But at least do it _interestingly_.

*sigh*

Of course, I'm the man that wears the loudest, most aggressive shirts I can find. The sorts of patterns that no one should wear, but manage to pull off through my incredible charm and creativity. Or so I tell myself.
  • Oh, these people upset me too! They came into the store and started stuffing Old Navy clothes with fliers saying that you dont have to dress nice to be yourself.

    What if dressing nice is being yourself? I like to think I express myself with my fashion. Why can't I be free to wear make up and skirts and low. revealing, tight shirts as a way of expression and *not* be looked down upon?

    Thanks for expressing something I've been ticked off about for months.
    • I look at it this way- how you dress is the only part of your appearance you have any control over- and I don't judge people by the brands or products they wear- I judge them based on how well they pull of whatever ensemble they are able to put together.

      Generally, I find people who shop creatively in thrift stores more attractive than most other people, so it's certainly not about price or quality. It's about personality. Doesn't matter whether it's old navy or curbshopped, it matters that you make it look good.
      • Right. I just don't understand why women think the only positive statement a woman can make about herself through fashion is to dress ugly!
  • You must show us these shirts. You must!
  • If they dress that way to try to be something they're not, then that is indeed bad. However, if that's truly who they are, and they're genuinely happy, I can't really find fault with that.

    That said, I too would be interested in seeing the shirts. ^_^
    • If who you are is uninteresting, bland and ugly, then yeah, I guess I can't fault someone that.

      It's just, when I see people in uniform, it seems to me that they're trying to be part of a group- and while some group's fashions appeal to me more than others (punk looks good, even when storebought- though the not-storebought kind looks better) I just get miffed.

      But this is from a man that can confidently say that _no one_ dresses like me.

        Yes, that's indeed miff-worthy. Though it's hard to tell in that case who is actually being him/herself and who is just being a big poseur. *shrug*

        Okay, now I really must see the shirts.
