I wonder a little if having so much fun at Ulta this weekend, buying and loving two new eyeliners*, painting my nails, buying and loving a new hair product** this morning, coloring my hair and putting a bright purple flower in it kinda makes me a bad feminist. I don’t want to support the beauty/fashion industries, but I like being pretty and girly. A lot. Maybe it balances out because I refuse to buy beauty/”health”/fashion magazines and stopped shaving my underarms and wearing bras. #firstworldproblems
(The answer is that feminism means having the choice, free of outside pressure, to express yourself as you please.)
