Not to come off as one of those “busy” bloggers who doesn’t have time to write a proper post — that I suck profoundly as a blogger has already been established — but here’s a curious little item from the University of Texas student paper with which I am going to leave you before biffing off for the day on pressing spinster auntly business.
Before you jump my shit for persisting in my cruel campaign against helpless undergraduate journalists, let me reiterate that yes, I know we all have to start somewhere, and no, I don’t expect feminists to spring fully formed from the womb. But. I can’t ignore that collegiate America so consistently publishes the creeping antifeminist delusions gurgling within the nascent citizens of tomorrow.
Anyway, here’s a weird piece in which college junior and “proponent of ordered liberty” Brianna Becker, inspired by the Latter-Day Saints slaves who’ve been riding the tide of controversy to market their turn-of-the-century Christian burkas, advises young women on the subject of sartorial modesty. Of course she invokes, as teenagers will do, this priceless gem:
Decades ago, equity feminists iconically sacrificed their undergarments through public bra burnings. This excessive act, in which women removed and reverted their restrictive clothing to ashes, was the manifestation of radical philosophy. Their theory was a degenerate form of classical feminism.
Somebody, please, tell young Brianna Becker what time it is.
