I have no idea who is in this picture. I saw this along with comments on Pinterest and it made me MAD. If these women WANT to dress this way, let them. If they were FORCED by men to dress this way, it’s a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY. You can’t just assume things if you don’t know the story behind the picture. 
Ultimately I’m so sick of SOME people, not ALL people blaming everything on the opposite sex. 
WOMEN: If your boobs and your butt are hanging out, NO ONE worth their salt of EITHER GENDER is going to give you the respect you are looking for. I know, because I AM A WOMAN and I have dressed BOTH WAYS. If I dress like a slut, I am treated like a slut, whether I like it or not. If I am fully clothed in a business suit, no boobs popping out, and rear end properly covered,  I’m most often called “ma’am” and treated with the respect I command without saying a word. Those are to extreme examples, but you get the point. It’s your body and you do have to acknowledge that some men are pigs no matter WHAT you wear, but the majority of the human race no matter what gender they associate with will treat you with more respect if YOU respect YOURSELF and dress accordingly. 
Now, that being said. Women should NOT have to dress like this to keep men from looking at them. SOME men are such pigs that even if you cover a woman from head to toe and only let her eyes show through, they will STILL rape them. 
My ultimate point is, if the woman in this picture who I’m guessing made these outfits CHOSE to do so because she thought they were pretty, and chose to make them THAT modest (which even I think is more than a little overboard) because she has enough respect for herself NOT to let her boobs and butt hang out and bitch that no one gives her proper respect, then she has EVERY RIGHT TO DRESS LIKE THAT. Leave her alone for God’s sake, get off your computer, and go live your life. 
Side note: I broke a long absence from tumblr to post this article. I am soooooooo sick of the lack of respect EVERYONE from EVERY opinion whether it be far left, or incredibly conservative has for anyone else’s point of view on this site. I try to take the stance of “live and let live.” Thus, I’ve taken down all my other accounts but this one, because no one needs that much negativity coming at them from people they don’t even know.

If you have been watching the news and keeping up with current events, you will see that the end is now. Media often portrays people who go around saying things like that some as some crazy old homeless guy, and it’s to desensitize people from the truth. Everything that’s…

In Praise of Premier League Eve

There are few days in football loaded with such a sense of excitement as the first weekend of a Premier League season. Like the moment School’s Out for Summer, the 380 games lie ahead of us. Each an unknown voyage of discovery within which everything feels…

Styled by Mobolaji Dawodu - A Visual Catalog.

There’s a cinematic quality to almost every Mobolaji Dawodu styled and or photographed photo. So many of the images he has styled, photographed - or both - look more like something out of a film still than 2-D fashion magazine pages. This signature of his, that is both visually classic and communicative, is part of what makes Dawodu’s work so intensely captivating. Making use of subjects that always have an air of effortless cool and mystique, Dawodu is able to draw you to his images, through the use of aesthetic qualities, leaving the viewer highly intrigued as to the narrative that inspired it. It’s no surprise that Dawodu’s foray into the world of costume design, with films such as ‘Restless City’ and ‘Mother of George’ under his belt, has been beautifully successful.

Hailed by Complex as one of the most stylish men in media, Dawodu is the style editor-at-large at the Fader but has had his work appear in such publications as Vanity Fair, i-D and Paper, and worked on projects for PUMA, Nike, Kenzo, Converse and Apple. Born in Nigeria to a Nigerian father and American mother, much of his work has been influenced and informed by his bi-coastal background.
