so katrinabadina actually did point this out last night, but my computer had to go under a disk check so I didn’t actually respond.
I see what you’re saying, anon, I do. But I think the point of the post in question was to talk about how silly it seems for such social norms to be, well, norms. You have to realize that most of these societal norms rose out of the foundations of a patriarchal society, teaching women to hide their bodies and the like.
Now, people argue that some grow uncomfortable if these social norms were not in place, which, to me, begs the further question: what if these norms had never been in place? Would they still feel uncomfortable? Had society not been so founded on these patriarchal beliefs that evolved into the placement of such norms, would women have to be so conservative?
This is probably a much broader discussion than you or I mean it to be, but I’m just trying to explain to you why I even reblogged the post.
Does that… make sense?
