This outfit post comes with complaints.
I recently heard about Gomi and their "Worst Fashion Blogger Photos" forum. It's just a bunch of photos of normal looking girls paired with comments picking apart their posture, faces, and bodies. I was like "Geez, any one of my photos could be on here!" Like, 4 days later I got a spike in my blog traffic. Can you guess the source?
Someone had linked to a picture of me making a stupid face and started making fun of it because I have yellow teeth. Whatevs, right? I'm posting these photos of me, I won't freak out when someone mocks them. Someone even started hating on a photo of Travis. Make fun of my teeth if you want, but step off my boyfriend!
But what really bothers me about this forum (and those like it) is that it is dedicated solely to making fun of girls for how they look. I hate to throw this term around, but if there was ever an example of internalized misogyny, this is it! How is any girl supposed to have healthy self esteem if when she posts a photo of herself online, a group of her fellow women tears her apart because (and this is a real example) her foot is turned at an awkward angle? C'mon ladies. It's hard enough having to deal with the media's examples of what women should be without a whole community of other girls hating on you for not living up to it.
Everything I'm wearing is thrifted except the brooch.
I wish I had a real ugly face to finish this off with, but I didn't plan ahead!
I hope you all had a great weekend.
