It started with this little inspirational post on tumblr, which was reblogged more than 100,000 times:
how to dress for your shape: are you human-shaped? play up your natural sex appeal by wearing whatever the fuck you want
Then it was repeated and expanded upon by a clothing company called Inner Subversion, who posted this on Facebook, which was reposted even more times:
How to dress for your shape: are you human-shaped? play up your confidence and natural sex appeal by wearing whatever the fuck you want.
Then it got picked up by the Huffington Post. Awesome. I like to think that more and more women are wearing whatever the fuck they want, without worrying about what others think. I like to think our culture is moving towards being more accepting of women who don't fit American society's narrow idea of beauty.
But that's probably not the case any more now than it was when I had that same hope back in 1991 when I first read The Beauty Myth.
At the very least, it means I have the right friends on Facebook, people who liked it enough to share it with me. That's something.
