Hello sweeties <3
Although in my opinion this outfit is nothing to fancy it has a special meaning for me now. I was wearing it for a visit to my grandfather shortly after Christmas. As the day was really nice and I love the town my grandpa lives in I decided to take a walk and this is where it happened. Some teenage girls decided to not only laugh at me but insult me in a rather obscene way.
Normally I would just ignore those comments but this day made me think about how people with a different look are perceived and treated by the majority of the people. Although we might be living in an openminded society some things are still net really accepted yet. For example looking different. Most people have the decency to keep their thoughts to themselves but there are also many people who have to push their believes and thoughts on others. I think this is rather sad! I don't want everyone to love Lolita or other "extreme" fashions but at least accept other peoples decisions to wear what they want. No one is forcing you to look or like it. It is probably impossible to change all the people in the world to accept people who are different but hey, I will try anyways! I think everybody should wear what he/she wants - If it makes people happy I don't have to like it. I can give my criticism about it but who am I to decide what makes other people happy?
