was a community started by me *bows* for people to snark merchandise for sale that they find to be ugly.
Now, it would seem to be self-evident that one person's idea of "ugly" is another's "OK", or even "holy wow, that's awesome". I mean, it would seem
to go without saying.
Well, not to ms_daisy_cutter
. A post snarking a comfy looking, yet ugly brown flannel shirt
has OFFENDED HER PERSONALLY!
From her entry-wide comment vomit:To quote a friend of mine...
I like how wearing comfortable clothes is described in negative terms — terms better suited to neglecting one's health, mind or inner being in some way...it's only 'feminine' in these people's minds if it hurts, restricts, poses a clear and present danger to children or small animals and you can't run, dance or even fucking well walk in it.
And:A friend sent me a link to this LJ and I was all revved up for it to be all about stupid, tacky shit on eBay...rather than some look that isn't pricey or uncomfortable enough for the princessy types.
Are we back in the 1950s or something? "Suffer for beauty"? "Beauty is pain"? Gotta look all dolled up at all times to catch you a mayyyyunnnn?
Because, you're not edgy unless you're spelling shit with a ton of y's and extra letters for no apparent reason.
And even more:I like how that looks, I'd totally wear it in that color, and anyone who has a problem with it can suck it.
Meh, fashion. Fuck that noise, I'm all about comfort.
Right, you nutbag, because the post was all about how ridiculous ms_daisy_cutter
would look in that shirt and how much we care about what ms_daisy_cutter
thinks about fashion and how we all have a problem with ms_daisy_cutter
and her super edgy icons and her super anti-fashion fashion choices because we all really give a shit about ms_daisy_cutter
! we really, really do!
