Lolita: Something to be PROUD of

You're not alone!!
I'm writing this post for many lolitas. For the lolitas that are harrassed and discriminated against. The ones that feel different from the rest of the world, who treat them like aliens just because their dresses are prettier and frillier than a barely-butt covering, bland old black dress that's so short it can double as a shirt. The things girls actually WEAR nowadays. Whatever happened to "pretty as a princess"? It seems like the trend nowadays is "pretty as a...raccoon? Skunk?"

Sorry, I don't want to sound mean, but I must tell each and every lolita that you are beautiful. What I believe to be true beauty as well; do you know why? Because you are dressing for yourself. Girls wear those...dull? Trying to be nice dresses, sleeveless and sliding off their breasts, attempting to suffocate their thighs, because apparently men think that looks sexy. Here's my question: Why care what men think? Wear whatever thing you want, if he's truly worth it, he'll come to you. Wouldn't you get the bad  boyfriends if all they care about is that you look hot? Lolitas, on the other hand, dress because they think Angelic Pretty, Innocent World, and all those other brands look elegant, kawaii, amazing, and perfect for them. Not him. This counts for fairy kei, the new style mori girl, visual kei, manbas and banbas-- any japanese street style. They are so unique and different, and for some reason, the rest of the world doesn't like anything out of the straight, fixed, black-and-pencil-skirt-line.

No lolita should be afraid to walk outside in a sugary carnival dress and meet the world's eyes. It is not acceptable that people should be rude enough to discriminate against you just because you have on a pink curly wig; I hope you never think that's just a way of life. Don't worry about it. Fight back with silence and smiles as you walk past. As I've said before, your lolita clothing is your armour. You prove you are strong and you can break through convention so many others follow, just by wearing that jumperskirt. I think that's one of the many reasons I love lolita and those who are lolita-- you have to be strong, to be a princess.

This is why you should take pride in how strong you are! You may not realize it, but lolitas are fighting a bloodless war. Rather than guns and bombs, the weapons are nasty looks, distasteful murmurs, rude comments, and creepy glances. But we have our own artillery! Smiles, explanantions, and just plain silence-- ignoring is the best way to go. And while there ARE a lot of rude people out there, there will always be the nice ones-- compliments, and of course your fellow lolitas. Don't give up the fight, my poofy princesses. The end is always happiness. ☆
