Stop Lying

I saw this picture on tumblr


Stop. Just. No. Look, I agree that girls don't always dress a certain way that a guy likes or to impress a guy. I'm not arguing that. Some girls don't do that at all, but to say that they dress only for themselves and other girls is a lie. I've dressed a certain way for a guy, I think a lot of other teenage girls will tell you the same thing. What's wrong with that? I don't see it. Sure, if you're overly fixated on this person and he dictates most of your decisions, that's something you should work on. But occasionally, if you want to impress this guy, what's wrong?

I get the message, and I appreciate it. I don't dress a way for someone else all the time, so it doesn't matter what they think or how they feel. I like the message for the most part, but I wish the tumblr social justice system would recognise that things aren't black and white.

Honestly, I don't know if this is all that bad, anyway. It's been a crappy day filled with angst-y Fall Out Boy songs, and this is something that bugged me.

Also, I don't really like tumblr. Tumblr doesn't even like tumblr.
