Why THIS Feminist doesn't need Feminist Underwear
I love underwear, I have lots, some matching sets, some grey knickers that sit at the back of the drawer until desperate times call for desperate measures and bras all the colours of the rainbow.
WHY DO I HAVE NICE UNDERWEAR?
Because I want to wear it, I don't wear it for anyone else other than myself and how it makes ME feel.
So reading this article in the Daily (hate) Mail, makes me want to throw up.
"Stretchy Fabric, no underwiring or padding"
This sounds like HELL to me.
There is nothing feminist about me kicking my tits as I walk because I get no support from my underwear.
Let us not even get me started on the use of the words "real women" either.
I wear MY underwear for me, if me having pert boobs that are in the correct sized bra with a matching set of knickers makes me a bad feminist, then bad luck, I'm obviously a terrible one.
My choice in lingerie doesn't make me objectified by the male gaze, my lingerie EMPOWERS me because it is mine and I am a wonderful woman.
This lingerie isn't for me, it may be for you, and that's ok, because THAT is what feminism truly is, it is about us making our own choices.
Feminist underwear? Sounds pants to me, how about you?
