Fashion hates womenPosted: February 12, 2012
The biggest thing in women’s fashion these days is male model Andrej Pejic.
He’s getting more work than La Moss.
I guess that this is because the fashion industry really hates women. And now, they’re not afraid to show it.
Why use a woman with all her lovely lady bits when you can advertise your fancy swimsuit by hanging it on the hip-less, angle-poise frame of a slender man?
Makes perfect sense in one respect – hey, I’m writing about it – but I don’t understand why the fashion industry insists on pretending they’re doing it for us.
Because they’re not.
Look, he’s a very pretty man. (Almost as pretty as David Sylvian, who would no doubt be strutting around in McQueen if he was in his youth today) But he’s a man.
He has the body of man, an Adam’s apple and well, he’s a man.
The fashion industry makes a very loud song and dance about using plus size models (though have you noticed that when one of their token ‘fatties’ gets press, they instantly lose weight? *coughs Crystal Wren Sophie Dahl coughs*
But that’s lip service isn’t it. They hate hourglass figures, breasts, hips and arses.
Hate is a strong word but how do you explain their constant abuse of the female form?
And don’t tell me that it’s ‘art’. It’s not. It’s insulting.
I find it sickening.
Though not enough that I might throw up my lunch.
