actually I am super jelly of women who can enact things like ‘exaggerated menacing girliness’ because (a) it’s cool to subvert the idea of frilly pink things as weak, and use them to unsettle people, and (b) it’s PRETTY
but if I dressed in a remotely little-girly fashion, I would just appear to genuinely be four years old (or maybe, like, 11) because there would be no contrast between my 'immature’ behaviors and the clothing. the impression would not be subversive. and I don’t need to be infantilized further. it would work out very badly.
nonetheless I might start wearing mary janes again because they are comfortable
