An angry Lesbian Feminist (is there any other kind) is outraged because… among other things… feminine heterosexual women should not be allowed to dress like Diesel Dykes! (Warning: the Story is at NRO, so prepare for ads to take over your browser.)
The columnist, named Sophie Wilkinson, describes the trend of what she calls “unisex style” as a new thing, blaming the “high-street ubiquity of unisex outfitters such as American Apparel and Uniqlo and the androgynous cuts of Scandinavian shops like Cos.”
“What was once a queer-owned style has shifted to the mainstream, being appropriated by straight women to the point that it’s now impossible to infer a sexual orientation from the way a woman dresses,” Wilkinson writes in a piece titled “Butch chic: how the gender-neutral trend has ruined my wardrobe.”
According to Wilkinson, examples of this “butch chic” style include printed T-shirts, “skirts without peplums or lace,” torn vests “riot grrrl boots,” and, in general, outfits where “functionality takes precedence.”
I’m sorry… but how is that any more of a “cultural appropriation” than white feminists using “jazz hands?”
Kind of reminds me when feminists got their panties in a wad because a scientist who had just landed a friggin’ space probe on a friggin’ comet, wore a shirt they didn’t like. (Sigh) Feminists, if they aren’t talking about clothes, they’re melodramatically throwing themselves on the fainting couch because some guy traumatized their feels with his insensitive words and opinions.
