RIP Linda Brown (and her father). And Blois Hundley.Can’t stop thinking about how the Austin police initially downplayed the first bombing and publicly implied that the victim, Anthony Stephan House, might have constructed the bomb himself and it self-detonated, killing him. https://t.co/x5VxBonHTY pic.twitter.com/naOEVjWAyv— 𝙹𝚞𝚕𝚒𝚎 (@resisterhood) March 22, 2018

I have such a problem with fetishizing all things Soviet, and this piece kind-of gets to that. Beauty and fashion can be either chore or release or some combination (see the Sady Doyle piece I linked to a few weeks ago on skincare). I will say this: I've been to some extremely poor places where very poor women take enormous pride in their dress. Clothing is one way to express individuality; individuality and Sovietism are natural enemies. Also, it's flaunting privilege to look like shit and get away with it.

Eat plants, help feed people. And no, you don't need to drink milk.
