❝ i don't think anyone does that tho

okay look, I’m the last person to sit here and say, “it doesn’t matter if women choose to do shit like that because it’s all about choice at the end of the day blah blah blah,” because obviously the motivation for those choices, be it shaving your legs or wearing makeup or whatever the fuck else you do in terms of your appearance, is heavily influenced by patriarchal beauty standards set in place to make women complicit in their own oppression

and yeah, I get kind of frustrated when people are like, “don’t criticize ___ because some women enjoy that/find it empowering” because that shit can derail discussions about sources of oppression

but in the last week I’ve seen a handful of posts that specifically criticized women who shave their legs as being somehow less aware of why they do it than, say, women who wear very femme makeup, as if the two aren’t in the same category of subtle oppression

so I’m not trying to detour the conversation and say “yeah but some people enjoy it!!!” - I’m saying that heavily criticizing women who shave their legs and not applying that same level of criticism to other oppressive constructs like the makeup industry is kind of fucked up

it creates this idea that certain forms of playing into your oppression are considered to be less informed than others, and that if even after criticizing your own motivations you still choose to shave your legs, it’s not seen as being as admirable or acceptable as getting dolled up or donning heels - not shaving your legs doesn’t magically make you a better person

like fucking everybody knows that shit like wearing makeup and shaving your legs is the product of an industry built on telling women that they will never be good enough, so maybe I’m just annoyed when I see the OPs of these posts assuming that they’re the only people on the planet who have given any thought to the beauty standards to which they choose to conform

as if anyone who chooses to shave their legs or wear makeup or do the countless other things they’ve been taught to do as a part of their socialization couldn’t possibly have already given that shit a lot of thought without people shitting on them about it or talking down to them (“please please please don’t blindly accept ___”)
