Re: “Sexy Swimsuits Aren't the Problem

For me the bottom line is that women should be allowed to wear what we want...so why can't you find a normal one-piece bathing suit that covers everything, without paying $90 for "resort wear" in winter. If women are wearing bikinis to "feel liberated" they've been had...you're wearing a bikini because nothing else is available. You're wearing a bikini because you've been forced into one. You're wearing a bikini, and short shorts, and tight tops, because your body has been defined as a sexual object for other people to look at and any attempt to take it back for yourself, and ONLY yourself, is met with impossible clothing choices. If I don't want anyone to see my body, except me when i come home and put on my gorgeous bras and underwear, except my boyfriend when he unwraps me like a gift...forget it. Nope. Everybody has to be able to see everything about my body all the time. Otherwise how would people like the poster who wants to "show off her hard work at the gym" be able to body shame me for my size? How would she be able to feel good about herself at my expense?

Re: “Sexy Swimsuits Aren't the Problem

I found this post while searching for a bathing suit that wouldn't make my 12 year old neice look like a 30 year old prostitute. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that 5-12 year olds aren't having sex and don't have anyone to impress on the beach. Parents are more interested (rightly) in whether their daughters can actually swim in a bathing suit without it falling off, or fall on the beach in a bathing suit without ending up with a rager of a rash across their stomachs, or have fun and run around without getting stared at by creepy pedos. Please get off your high horse with your proto-feminist "i dress like a whore and this is why I should be allowed to" nonsense. A dress code is NOT A RAPE. And women who want to cover their bodies should not be forced to walk around half naked because YOU think putting clothing on your body is unacceptable for some reason. Because THAT has nothing to do with men and every woman would be sitting around her house wearing pasties and hooker heels when she's alone because it's so comfortable? Girl, please. If there were no men on the beach, we'd all be walking around in swimsuits we can actually SWIM IN. I feel hobbled by these swimsuits, and you need to stop denying the experience of women who don't want men staring at them all the time as anti-feminist. We're all women. Except maybe the people who post this type of "I'm a feminist and feminists wear little to no clothing and pay all of a man's bills and never complain about anything" stuff. I'm convinced they're men, trying to convince us that serving their needs is somehow actually feminism because doublethink, that's why.
