Has anyone seen this twitter trend lately? You might think it’s all with good intentions but i highly doubt it and after spending some time reading, I came to some conclusions.
Definition of fashion: a popular or the latest style of clothing, hair, decoration, or behaviour.
Let’s take this definition which tells us that it’s non related to the human emotion but only to the body. So, regarding that… we have specialists in fashion that give you advice on how to match clothes, on the chrome, the model, the size and then we have #rockthecrop. What i’m saying is that #rockthecrop is a movement not meant to inspire or even show that you look good in crops. This is a movement meant to empower plus size women emotionally. It’s unrelated to fashion itself or even to body shaming.
What does fashion have to do emotion, ladies and gents? NOTHING.
So, we have these women thinking it’s right to bash someone and call out that they have been body shaming? Really? Just because it’s actually an old fashion tip, you have to come to bash out this guy for that one statement ( if, and only if) . Why bash him? not because you have better fashion advices but because it created an emotional frustration that you’re told not to do something. Let’s be real.. how many from #rockthecrop wear crops at least 2 times a week? I assume, not many but all of them came out today to prove they are righteous and beautifull. What does fashion have to do with the beauty of women? Basically NOTHING.
Why? Because the only beauty found in fashion is the material, superficial beauty of the combined clothes or garments themselves. So how is it that people can’t be rational enough to understand that this is a movement that is actually unrelated to the topic itself. This is the movement of frustrated women who instead of bringing out a new fashion trend, they try to change the old ones. It’s so hard to bring out new fashion trends right? So damn hard.
This is a movement that is full of emotional vibrations in a domain unrelated to it. This is not body shaming, this is not even fat shaming, this is fashion and accept it or not, it’s not a domain supposed to pamper your emotions.
If you actually watch the discussions on twitterl, at #rockthecrop you will see messages like:
I’m doing it this weekend. Fuck anybody who has the nerve to tell me what I can’t do. Bitch I’m me! Slay ladies!
