I totally agree with you there! I don’t support the ideas of slut-shaming or that people “are asking” to be harassed for wearing less clothing. I’ve been known to don some pretty exposing clothing myself. I meant more that because it is over the top and unusual people feel like they can say something, like we should “expect” to have something said to us because we’re dressed outside of the norm.
Hope that clears up what I meant to you and others. :)
Hello! This happened when I was going to the loliday meeting in my city. The other lolitas in the meeting I was attending to were very supportive and it was a great Saturday despite being harassed by some random dude in the street, but I’m still shaken and feeling awful. :( I don’t know if this is the place for posting this picture, but I want to tell everyone that it’s not their fault if people catcall them in the street. I feel really pretty, empowered and confident while I’m wearing lolita fashion and patriarchy will not tell me I can’t have this.
Thanks for reading!
Hey! This is totally an appropriate place for this since cat-calling is something that feminism deals with and you and I have both had it happen while wearing lolita. Lolita promotes a more “conservative” dress style (as in it shows less skin, not that it conforms to expectations) but for some reason people still think that is excuse enough for them to say whatever they want. It happens to me in other alternative fashion styles and I’ve heard of it happening universally to goths, lolitas, gals, mori-girls and more.
Unfortunately cat calling happens every day to some people. I’m glad you stood up for yourself and it is definitely not the fault of anyone being cat called that the person doing it is a giant douche-nozzle.
