Just a thought #rant
You’d think that ASOS would be a company clever enough to not feel the need to succumb to statements such as this: 'There's never been a better reason to shave your legs than up to 60% off playsuits and dresses'.
I’m not usually one to rant on about my views, but I do think this twitter post from yesterday seems rather pointless at a time when gender stereotyping isn’t really necessary anymore and when female empowerment has proven to be an extremely popular subject over the past few years.
It just seems that sweeping comments such as these can be easily brushed off, yet i’m just curious as to who thinks these would be good statements (although now days it seems most people are aware of what reaction things will get…cough cough* Blurred lines).
I just feel that at times when we seem to be coming so far, there still seems to be a fair amount of unnecessary comments made here and there, which undermine all the efforts that have been made to stop stupid gender stereotyping.
Even if this is meant to be in tongue and cheek, I guess i’m questioning as to why this would be seen as that, and not just darn right offensive. It’s not that I am against shaving or not shaving. It’s merely the fact of WHO CARES what women or men do.
Rant over and back to work
