Forever obsessed with this god
Never settle, Ladies. Know your worth.
Freema Ageyman’s FACE, tho.
literally cannot wait for the day when society advances to the point where women are no longer obligated to wear bras in public
this was the case in the 70s for quite a while (any movie from that time will show you braless actresses), but the conservative backlash took all that away from us.
Deborah Van Valkenburgh in The Warriors, 1979
Jane Fonda in Klute, 1971
Cindy Morgan in Caddyshack, 1980
…which is a shame because my tits are my most fashionable accessory
also Jennifer Aniston tried to bring it back in the 90s and looked good doing it, but it didn’t stick.
since middle school i’ve been ashamed of having boobs but i hate wearing bras so much. especially in the summer
lets bring back the braless look. free the boobiadoos 2014, the future starts now
ya’ll tiny-titted folk can keep your braless movement… I’m not walking around with my 44H boobs unsupported
Nah I’m not feeling it. Unsupported DD’s are not what I’m about
YOU GUYS ARE MISSING THE POINT its not like. lets never wear bras ever, my main point was let’s not make bra-wearing something that a woman has to do in order to be deemed ~acceptable to be seen in public
agree. the point is “bras optional”, not “bras forbidden” or “bras required”. “bras optional” periods in recent american fashion history can be said to coincide with the status of women, and particularly the popularity of women’s movements. at the turn of the century a lot of suffragettes rejected the corset and skirt and went for bloomers and loose blouses, a trend which was ridiculed in the popular press. in the 1920s and 30s (flappers were liberated women) there were a lot of braless looks and braless fashion, then post-world wars, things got conservative again, and the famous and uncomfortable bras and girdles of the 40s-50s became de facto. in the 60s and 70s the women’s and sexual liberation movements shocked all the buttoned-down old folks with bringing back the visible nipple, and this lasted into the early 80s, when conservatism snapped back and we ended up in a whole new generation of consumeristic, de rigeur underwear.
prior to this, the 1700s in Europe boasted a lot of Visible Breasts, often in conjunction with the corsets of the day, and sometimes in a more Greco-Roman “loose” style. and this likewise was a comparatively progressive era in terms of the very earliest proto-feminist ideas.
the whole point is that we should have the option. the fact that we dont, unless we are intent on “transgressing” and being met with negative attention, reflects the societal status of women and the broad feelings of our current culture towards feminism and women’s issues.
my official prediction is that bralessness is about to come back, and early fashion adopters are already pushing that envelope, notably Rihanna and Beyonce.
Okay so imagine the villain has captured a girl the protagonist cares about and is all like “I’ll kill her unless you give me the macguffin!”
And the hero’s like “that will never happen! I love her and she loves me! Right?”
And the girl’s like “um…this isn’t the best time.”
And the protagonist screams she’s a friendzoning whore and abandons her.
And the villain’s like “fuck that guy” and teaches her how to walk in thigh-high leather boots.
I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
question of the day: what is a book you absolutely love that doesn’t get enough love? why do you love it?
Lady Knight by Tamora Pierce, the Tiffany Aching series by Terry Pratchett, and The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman which all have in common tremendously entertaining adventures with unconventional female protagonists who are doing their best to navigate how to get the job done and do the right thing at the same time. I love them because they’re fun, they’re clever, the characters are people I want to know, and when I’m done reading them I want to be a better person.
#i originally tried to fit this answer in the little answer box#but I apparently CAN’T CONTAIN MYSELF when it comes to my fav books#i just want to be a kind and clever and funny person who toils to make the world better#and has wild adventures and is awesome#me living vicariously thru fiction is me pretending that i’m just a really good person#and i don’t think kel gets enough love because if she got all she deserved#tumblr would be nothing but kel 24/7#and tiffany’s not obscure but more people should read her#idk anyone else besides my mother who’s read mrs. pollifax#pls talk to me if you’ve read mrs. pollifax#it would be very unexpected hahaha seriously discuss this book with me
