Assumptions & The Power of Choice:Looking at Women’s Rights Through Fashion
After having a minor aesthetic identity crisis upon my return to New York, this was a thought-provoking read.
I’m constantly fascinated by individual—and cultural—expressions of self (go listen to RuPaul’s WTF interview—it’s fucking incredible!). But living in the capitalistic center of the universe, I’m suddenly hyper aware of what labels I’m wearing…what my clothes, shoes, hair, makeup, accessories, and home furnishings communicate to the people around me…the cost associated with creating the version of myself I’d like others to see.
And from where I stand, it feels depleting, disparaging, and desperate much more often than it feels creative, inspiring, or empowering. And we all silently participate. It’s unavoidable. Even if it’s subconsciously, we’re barraged with the American mantra of consumption-as-self-creation everywhere we go.
I guess I can see now, maybe for the first time, how incredibly liberating it might be to turn all that off. How choosing not to participate would wake you up. Would open you up to a whole new world of incredible things to pour your heart, soul, and consciousness into.
And when you think about it like that, the choice to wear a hijab sounds incredibly progressive. Revolutionary even.

No sweeping conclusion to spout off, I’m just pondering. Definitely worth a read!

"I’m trying to distance myself from the idea that youth is the best time of life, because a lot of my friends are really anxious about growing older. I’m studying classical drawing, which helps. It really slows things down. We can work an entire month on a single drawing. And I don’t plan on reaching my peak before the age of fifty."

And anyway, when did sexual attraction become the sole metric for physical beauty? Is a sunset “ugly” just because you don’t want to fuck it? What about a waterfall? A horse? Ireland? A song?
