15. Do you address anything political in the way you dress?

I dress with self-possession; that is a radical act.

I have a couple t-shirts with slogans, I guess. Feminist ones and liberal ideas.

I leave most of my body uncovered in a Muslim country.

Futch. Not femme, not butch. Kind of a bro look but without the salmon shorts.

Not particularly, although I do feel very strongly about letting women wear whatever they want to, and not sexualizing their bodies.

On the Fourth of July, I can get away with wearing red, white, and blue at the same time.

Well, the way I dress is not straight. In Europe right-wing people tend to dress more straightly than left-wing people. So I guess I look slightly leftish, although I am not covered in self-knitted woolen cloaks. In fact, politically I am somewhere in the middle. Except that I believe - correct: that I know - that CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE GREATEST THREAT MANKIND HAS EVER FACED.

no.

I like to paint on/distress my own clothes and I have a lot of ideas for political stances/statements to put on a t-shirt but I never do them.

no

Yes I used to live in Islamic country which the official dress was uniform.

I do my own thing. What on earth does politics have to do with the way I dress?

No.

i don't like exposing my body; i am pretty modest. it's uncomfortable to me to be revealing because i do not want to be sexualized at all. i think it is a survival strategy. i want to downplay my body because it is very frightening to have people objectify me or see me as a sexual being.

Probably. I do dress to please myself, which can get pretty outlandish some days. And I do cosplay, which has it's political aspects to it.

I do know how to dress to fit in. And I always feel like I'm in drag when I do.

no

I'm afraid there is not.

Maybe. I don't want to look too feminine, or feminine at all. I want people to concentrate to how I think, not how I look.

I don't believe so.

Not that I know of?

Not really but I like and support several small Indian designers and labels - that I wear with pride and advocate where ever I am

not in the slightest

not too feminin

People tell me I remind them of Rosie the Riveter. I am not afraid to make fun of myself with silly sushi printed tops (BIG compliments on that one,) or one of my favorite sweaters that boasts in big white letters LAST PLACE. I am not afraid to look beautiful, purposeful, and done up during the day. Children like to point out my dark purple lipstick at the grocery store. Other than that, my political views are pretty clear when you talk to me. I am very opinionated.

I think it probably seems political that I don't shave or wear bras, but really I have no agenda. I just want to be comfortable (not itchy or prickly, not held in around the rib cage).

Feminismus! To be beautiful and strong. To be attractive and serious.

dont be daft getting fed up now

Not consciously and not overtly, but I suppose my recent decision to steer away from constantly wearing high heels in a law office environment is a slightly politically-charged decision. It's my way of saying there's nothing wrong with a female lawyer wearing shoes that aren't high heeled, and the fact that I am not doesn't make me any worse a lawyer than the women who are wearing high heels!

I wouldn't say my politics have any effect on my wardrobe.
