Looking cute is not in my job description
Elin Grelsson Almestad skrev en krönika i GP häromdagen om skönhetsnormer, där hon bland annat citerade mig. Om någon läste den och undrade var det var jag bloggat detta, var det på min tumblr, på engelska. Så här skrev jag då:
Here’s the thing.
If I had any sort of job description as a person, it’d be some variation on “don’t be an asshole.”
Not being an asshole doesn’t include looking nice for you. It doesn’t mean keeping my legs hairless, doing my hair or makeup, making sure my pant size is within some sort of acceptable span, wearing cute shoes and flattering clothes, or anything else that you would prefer over whatever it is I might be doing at the moment.
I don’t try to make people uncomfortable on purpose, but if you’re uncomfortable because I’m not making an effort to be cute for you, that’s on you, not me.
