FYI: The Term ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ Is an Example of the Patriarchy
by Katherine Timpf August 25, 2015
It’s sexist and ageist and fattist.
In case you don’t spend your time sitting around thinking of everyday things that could actually be secretly oppressing women, here’s one you might have missed: “boyfriend jeans.”
That’s right. The fact that fashion designers use the term “boyfriend jeans” to describe looser-fitting pants is an example of the patriarchy — at least if you ask “essayist and journalist who writes about gender” Elissa Strauss.
“Are they a death knell for female confidence and ambition? Of course not,” Strauss stated in a piece for The Week, published Tuesday.
“But each time I put them on, I stop and wonder how this subtle affront to my dignity has gone on so long,” she continued.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
