I enjoy asks.
I am. I am. I am.
Miss Representation blog takes on the bs surrounding that Dove commercial and the implication that women are somehow the worst part of beauty culture.
This operates in the same way as woman-on-woman conflict or “cattiness”, for that matter. How often do you see dudes, called on their misogyny, try to deflect criticism with “well, women are shitty to each other, too”? Placing the blame on women for that competitiveness and such. Except, when you’re raised in a society that tells you from day 1 that women are icky and women suck and you quickly learn that the only way to make headway against that is to side with dudes against other women, and then the vast bulk of narratives around relationships between women depict at least *some* level of competition…what the hell else do you expect? We’re working within the rules y’all set, and then we’re to blame for following those rules?
Just like if women *aren’t* “our own worst critics” about beauty and appearance, we’re slobs, unloveable, unfuckable, useless, probably dykes, etc. Self-critical about your appearance? Vain and/or low self-esteem. Refuse to participate in culturally-mandated self-criticism around your appearance? You either don’t care enough to take care of yourself, or you’re just a stuck-up bitch, depending on how the situation plays out.
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
Must be a day that ends in -y.
