[Un]Girliness

weather: sunny

mood: struck w/
realization
Self,

Stop touting your own ungirliness. Just quietly stop it now.

Your Girliness is not as high as other females in some areas, but you're much more girly (in good and bad ways) than others in some ways. To tell people you don't or won't do girly things, then turn around and do something super girly makes you look like a fucking ass.

You're. A. Girl.

Do what you have to. Do things your own way. But accept it and shut the fuck up about not taking a traditional path. Be smart enough to take That Fruitcake™'s actions as a warning for yourself. Yes, that's exactly how stupid you look when you do it.

— Self.

Few things are more humbling than looking at someone make a fool of themselves and realizing how sometimes your actions mirror theirs.

Yes. And I'm really glad I could see it.

Any context to this? Background story? A little out of the blue... but, hope you feel better regardless.

Oh, there's a girl who is really ... how should I describe it?... very abrasive? bitchy? about "society's expectations of a woman" and how she's so not that way, won't wear a skirt, won't wear makeup, won't do this, won't do that, hate this patriarchial bullshit, yaddayaddayadda.

And she just posted a question about one of those really frilly and unnecessary things that she's denounced in the past. I've ribbed her before about previous posts where she said she did something out of the Martha Stewart magazine.

By her actions and descriptions, she's one of the homeliest women I've ever seen.

I guess I've just realized that I do the same thing. And I hate it.

Oooh. Hm.
I guess it's always unpleasant to suddenly realise that one of the people you dislike is actually ... well, in a way, a mirror.

Never really found you that way, though. At least, online (in this journal). Just so you know!

I'm not going into an anti-feminist rant. Not. Really. I won't.
