There are two types of Drunk White Girls:

The ones that are super nice in the bathroom, and the ones that call me “gurl” and try to touch my hair.

quote 'This… stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don't know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.

No but actually. I wish I could throw this in the face of every high and mighty SJW who thinks that they are above aesthetics. Nope. You are making just as much of a statement about yourself in your thrifted tie dye as I am in my ASOS dress. I won’t sit here and pretend like the fashion industry doesn’t have it’s problems (helloooo classism and sketchy ass labor practices) but that thrifted t shirt you’re wearing was designed by someone. The fabric, the pattern, the color scheme, EVERYTHING. Never mind the fact that the reason why some gowns cost $20,000 is because of the extensive amount of creative and physical labor that goes into them. You may not shop at designer stores or even the gap, but you are no better than those of us who do. But by all means, continue throwing stones from your ill-constructed glass house.
