While I like the overall sentiment, I also bemoan the fact that the Official Right seems to have laid down a Sarah Palin/Ann Coulter aesthetic standard for conservative women.
It is just as conformist to wear miniskirts well into middle age because Coulter has inadvertently made it THE uniform, as it is to let yourself go a la Andrea Dworkin because you think you’re making a political statement by not shaving your armpits.
Three inch heels have turned into the “bowties” of conservtive women. Look, it’s fun once in a while, but seriously? I’m just as likely to wear my leaky Chucks (yes… well into middle age…)
Women are under 24/7 pressure about their appearance from age 4 on. We “watch ourselves being watched” every waking hour.
Is it really necessary to impose a new “thing” we have to cope with?
Aren’t we supposed to be into individuality…?
