Response to boston bean (Reply #23)

28. speaking for myself

 

I would like any woman better who chose to reject the cosmetic nonsense that so many women conform to: makeup, hairstyling, high heels ... All of that just reinforces harmful stereotypes -- and a whole lot of it is total crap in other ways (environmentally in particular).

I find it amusing that commentary on Clinton's appearance is so roundly condemned, but all the blather that goes on (including at DU) about how stunning and gorgeous etc. etc. etc. Michelle Obama is, usually when she appears in one of her particularly stereotypically feminine outfits (bare arms, bare shoulders, bare chest and back, flouncy skirts and girly fabrics and colours), it's bad manners to say nay.
