The Huffington Post recently published this article on trends men hate, but women love. (Pause for collective exasperated sigh from all decent human beings.)
Beginning to end, it’s full of mysogynistic fedoras. Guys who think they have the final word on what girls should wear to please their aesthetic tastes. Like I said, I’m not a “fashion” kind of person, so usually this wouldn’t even pop up on my radar, but the feminists of Tumblr catch EVERYTHING, and so this popped up on my dashboard:
Of course I took a look, and while I personally don’t like all of the trends (well actually most of them it we’re being honest), I’d never go so far as to tell others what to wear, because frankly it’s none of my damn business. The article features comments from interviewed guys, which are all basically, “I don’t like this so you shouldn’t wear it.” If aliens were to read this as part of a study on human culture, they would think that women dress only for men, and that they may like a fashion trend, but that doesn’t matter because men don’t. Welcome to the patriarchy.
Wow, lots of seriousness here. Need a dose of comedy before this post ends, so here‘s a post by a Tumblr user who asked her boyfriend for his opinion on the article and trends.
