My apologies for the delay on this posting. I was caught up in adventures of my own and I wanted to be sure that each of you might have the opportunity to test your metal with this handy diagram before venturing forward on perilous endeavors. Best of luck, dear readers

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

This is literally the stupidest comic I have ever made and I’m not even sorry
the next time anyone gives you shit for being inspired by something not conventionally considered inspirational, just remember that gandalf, one of the most wise and powerful figures in middle-earth, got his courage through bilbo baggins who liked books and handkerchiefs and didn’t know how to hold a sword
