unfriendlyblackgoddess asked: I think you don't understand the concept of weaponized femininity? Like the whole point is to embrace femininity on your own terms and not cater to the male gaze. I wear a shit ton of makeup and most guys truly don't like it, but, like, I still do it because I have the agency to choose my own aesthetic not based on what men find attractive. Does that make sense? It's about women's agency taking down the systems, not the ACTUAL tools.
we can personally reclaim or wear as much makeup for ourselves and find it personally empowering if we want to. but that is about it. its not radical.
Again, hi, I’m another mod on here and I really strongly disagree with this response.
Just want our followers to know that we don’t represent one unified view, and this response does not speak for me or to me at all. I really really strongly believe that reclaiming femininity by any means necessary is really really important and super radical.

well, at least there’s this. jesus christ fyhf is so fucking terrible at being fuck yeah about so much hard femme. why the fuck does anyone ever think it’s a good idea to make a blanket statement about what’s radical for feminine people to do?
like srsly there is so much makeup and there are so many different practices of wearing makeup that exist in the world, including products and cultural practices totally outside giant corporate marketing and manufacture. there are so many people to whom femininity is denied where wearing makeup is a radical assertion of their femininity despite constant and systemic efforts to deny them legitimized femininity and/or womanhood.
