I know intersectionality is a difficult topic for some people but I think we have to bring this stuff up, we have to talk about it. If we don’t, if we just try to go with the flow of how things are, I think things will go off the rails and we’ll wind up with FA being just another white, middle-class woman’s movement. We’ve got to go about this with some deliberation, you know?
Part of that means having conversations within out community about what we want that community to be like.
So I really do want to hear y’all’s thoughts.
And I also want to talk about tights. I love We Love Colors. I pretty much live in a bunch of ridiculously bright tights from them all “winter” long – I say “winter” because, well, it’s Florida. I know I’m a cold-weather wuss.
But you know what I really really really want? I want fishnets and stripey tights from them in the same size range as the solid color tights. Because the sizes they have don’t match up right now and they’re too small and it makes me gnash my teeth.
Gnashing isn’t good for teeth!
On tumblr this morning I saw the most amazing pair of vertically striped tights with florescent sections – I want We Love Colors to make those in the same size range as their solid color tights. I would BUY THE HELL OUT OF THEM.
I want someone to remember there are fat goths out there with money to spend – give me some silly Victorian/Edwardian fashions in black with lace and pearl buttons everywhere, please.
I want some tissue-weight long-sleeved layering t-shirts like Target had *counts on fingers* four or five years ago.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
