I Feel Like a Woman

Why do you love being you?

And I’m not sure if I’m quoting Shania Twain because I just spent ample time in Texas and from what I understand, she’s big in Texas, or if it is simply because a. Today is the one week anniversary of International Women’s Day, b. I’ve just finished reading Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, or c. Michelle Obama’s newest Vogue cover is smoking chic and I am just like, why can’t my partner-in-sex run for office?

women-superheros

If the answer to Shania Twainism is A, the “day” in International Women’s Day cannot, does not, will not deter me and I hereby grant Friday’s celebration a breadth of relevance to last all month long. Frankly, there’s no reason we shouldn’t actively commemorate being ladies (even if we’re men) 365/365, but if we’ve only got one official day to outwardly chant, “fuck yeah, vagina!” we may as well stretch it as far as a dollar at Zara goes–know what I’m saying?

If the answer is B, which it might be, (hehe), have you read it? Do you want to speak to it? Let’s do that. Then we can Lean In until we feel it in our abs.

And if the answer is C, do you think Barack makes Michelle breakfast in bed? If so, was the fiscal cliff of January actually founded upon rising protein bar prices, (see: fiscal cliff bar)? Sometimes my terrible jokes make me want to stab myself and then I remember that if I were to do that, no one could edit the jokes in question and that is a terrible legacy to leave behind.

I think I just wasted a lot of your time, though. Most importantly, I feel like a woman and as such, would like to take this opportunity to talk about that. Lest I forget, too, that tomorrow is Lips Appreciation Day and you know what that means, right? Vaginas, among other things. Ultimately, I just really want to know why you love feeling like/being a woman (or a man, if you want to go there! By all means! Please do! I’ll just preface this by noting that according to three such arbiters questioned over the weekend, the single most popular answer is, “because I can play with my balls.”)

What’s that? You want me to get the non-testicular ball rolling? Okay.

Answer 1. I love that I can cover our nipples at beaches if I want to and still sunbathe care of the bikini not to be confused with male swim trunks. Do men have nipple complexes?

1a. While on the topic of nipples, I am also really proud that mine are not otiose at all and will eventually nurture hungry babies.

1b. While on the topic of choice and nurturing hungry babies, those things grow inside of us which is pretty neat too.

Answer 2. I really like that I can make the executive decision to either wear makeup or not wear makeup, wear a dress or not wear a dress, without the constructs of conformist society scolding that choice.

Okay, your turn. Why do you love being you?

    I love being a woman for the sheer complexity and infinite possibilities. “Being a woman” means so many different things, and I am one, a couple, or all of those definitions at one point or another or all at the same time. Oh, and yes, the ability to have babies is pretty amazing as well. That definitely counts as a superpower in my book.

    Mrs. Obama’s Vogue cover looks like People magazine. And I’m still amazed that a woman as smart as her would get an ill-fitting white girl haircut. Kudos for beating it into submission, but it’s ridiculous.

    Chic is not the word.

      Bangs are a white thing?

      • http://www.vintageobserver.com/ Couteau

        With wigs and weaves, anything goes, but typical African hair doesn’t lend itself well to bangs. It needs to be straightened regularly with painful chemicals. Only those with time and deep pockets can afford the upkeep. And even with the means, there are unpleasant side effects, like bald patches. By resorting to extremes, Michelle Obama manages to do these Anglo-Dutch-Irish hairstyles, but it’s not ideal for a black beauty.

        The result is really quite pathetic, and totally lacking in individual style. Shame, because she has lovely plentiful hair and should be setting an example to other African-American women.

        • http://www.EatStylePlay.com/ Eat.Style.Play

          I’m black and natural and I’m always tickled at these conversations. If she chooses to wear her hair relaxed it’s not always linked to some Anglo-Dutch Wannabe hair. No offense but I don’t buy it and never will. Hair is hair, and since I’m pretty sure she shouldn’t be measured by her hair choice given how much she has accomplished, being natural is not ideal for everybody who has the choice. It’s not easy when you have to twist you hair everyday single day, and hope that it comes out right. Worry about your hair looking crazy once some moisture hits it. Nobody everybody has that “wash and go” style hair. I’m not being catty but
          it’s like…black women put so much energy into what it means to have natural hair. I’ve been natural 3 times, and the last thing I’ve thought of was. I’m going wear my hair like this to prove that I love being Black. A relaxer is not that extreme dear (bleaching, wearing color contacts, and going for the blonde hair) is extreme and there is nothing wrong with the people who get them. She is a BLACK woman, who has done far more than most, and will always do so and at the end of the day nobody is thinking about her hair over her feats and accomplishments in life as a lawyer, first lady, mother, and Philanthropist. Here we are talking about Womens Day and her accomplishments and accolades are
          basically meaningless because you think she is trying to be “white” because of her hair. Newsflash white people are NOT the only person with hair like so. Asians, Latinos, freaking every other race has straighter hair than blacks. So….I don’t get why folks get in a fuss over straight hair. You give other races too much power going that route. I’ve met Michelle Obama, I’ve heard her speak numerous times living in DC, and trust me the last thing anybody is thinking about is her hair.

          It’s not ideal for Black Beauty? Do you know how many types of black beauty there is? Is black beauty now of zeroed down to
          kinky hair? I mean I have cousins in Trinidad that have straight hair, they are black they are gorgeous. I have Family in Toronto with really loose hair, and I have really Kinky hair. Black is not just “kinky” black
          is black” and I think we all get caught up in some stereotypical nonsense
          of what we have to do to be the “black ideal”. Here I thought Black
          skin was enough to qualify now we have to wear our hair a certain way…what’s next? We have to wear Ankara fabrics to prove ourselves. Like what is Ideal when there are SO many possibilities and combinations of black? I mean I can wear my hair straight with no painful heat ? Does that now mean I’m doing a lot of painful procedures to get straighter stretched out hair?

          But to finish, in my line of work in DC. I come into contact with a lot of women who are the wives of Kings and Presidents in Africa. IF you think her haning bangs is “white” then you’d seriously loose your shit if you saw the women with long blond weaves, contacts, and uneven skin tones from bleaching. Women who’s sole purpose in life is to just be there and be pretty and do nothing.

          • http://www.vintageobserver.com/ Couteau

            I don’t know what’s ideal for African hair. What’s sure is that we can openly discuss someone’s style in a style blog without clouding the conversation with their life accomplishments. I was responding to Leandra’s comment on the Vogue cover and the first lady’s bangs.

            Furthermore, I never said that white girls weren’t guilty of bad hairstyles. Bleaching is a good example or extensions. Often, northern hair is too fine for extensions. It shows.

            What you seem to be saying is that “natural” African hair is just as high maintenance. That makes the bangs more acceptable, but objectively, it’s not an easy or “chic” hairstyle for Mrs. Obama’s hair.

            In any case, she is a diplomat. Her image is just as important as her words and gestures. So it’s not frivolous to discuss the first lady’s style as it would be if she were, say, a law professor. The bangs are unimportant, but she does have a tendency to outdress people -foreign dignitaries, guests and even the president- when her focus should be on building bridges. She’s fabulous, sure, but will she be remembered as a great diplomat? Also I find it slightly disturbing that she hasn’t developed friendships with American designers, given how much they have bolstered her profile.

            Peace.

          • http://www.EatStylePlay.com/ Eat.Style.Play

            Leandra’s comment had nothing to do with her hair in the sense you brought it in, and it being white though, so i don’t follow. I’m responding to you, and you’re comment at this point. Personally I thought it was worth replying to simply because you went there. I’m good on healthy discussion and by no means am i commenting to start anything but healthy conversation. Natural hair for anybody can be a pain, not just “African” hair. and regardless of my personal thoughts of how manageble mine is just a small reason of why she might not choose to be natural. You’re the one that said it wasn’t ideal, but what is ideal, and by who’s standards if it’s solely yours then I think i’m entitled to question why?

            Since you said you don’t know all of sudden you’re a bit confusing and seem to be backtracking. Black hair comes in all textures, if she chooses to wear her hair a certain way, I don’t think it’s fair to go there about the whole “she’s trying to be white” or influenced by whites. At the end of the day i mention her achievements because the article is about womens day, and it seems a bit catty to go that far in terms of her hair. Maybe the girl who me who was called “white” most of her life doesn’t like it and the women in me who is still called “white” hates to hear any thing of the sort but at the end of the day I don’t think bangs with this women are linked to self hate. Maybe we are looking at two different women but right now, she is building bridges, and she is getting things done, and right now half the people mock her for wearing the American designers that she does wear saying that she is spending tax payer dollars to look nice. I’m thinking maybe for PR purposes while the nation is going through fiscal issues that isn’t really that important, and we never know what goes on behind closed doors. But anyway, i’m done with this debate. It was entertaining for a monday to say the least.

    • greengirl

      Hey Couteau,

      What do you know about black hair? first, it’s very racist to automatically judge a women hairstyle according to her color. Some black girls have really silky hair, not straight but curly and silky as white hair, that would comes as straight as your hair can be after a quick blow dry. Look at some ethiopian or sudanese girl… A style is just a style, it should be an option for every women no matter how their natural features are. It’s like wearing make up! It’s like saying a pale girl shouldn’t wear fondation. She is wearing a classic cut, very simple and neat as a first lady, and I think she looks great. I would love for people to stop talking about color and simply call a girl a girl ugh.

    I was talking to my students this morning about the differences in buying clothes for kids (long story on how we got there), and one student mentioned that she is disappointed by the lack of options that exist for boys. Her young daughter can change her look almost daily – she can be a princess, a rocker girl, a prepster, a hipster, or a sporty girl – and all of these clothes she can have for a reasonable price. Her son, however, she feels gets to only wear jeans and tshirts, maybe a sweatshirt, unless mom shells out extra for Adidas or a suit (and not many 4 year old boys want to rock a suit every day). She worries that her children are being sent the message early on that boys have to create solid, consistent, only masculine identities, while girls can be more flexible about how they identify themselves, and how that might influence their opinions about individuality, creativity, sexuality, and the like as they get older. Yep…it was a good teaching day. :-)

    So, I guess the thing I love about being a woman is that we can be total chameleons, in how we look and behave, without too much of a fuss. When I’m at work, I’m a professional, conservative educator who inspires people. When I’m out with my husband, I’m a sexy, confident woman who loves good wine and flirting. When I’m with my nephews, I’m a strong, funny, caring woman who they run screaming to with excitement every time they see me. I don’t have to fit into any kind of “box” as a woman – I can be all of those people whenever I want to be. It’s pretty cool.

    Oh, and boobs are nice. You never realize how powerful they are until you see it first hand. Men might think they rule the world, but put them in front of a nice rack (of any size), and they’ll do whatever you want. ;-) You can’t say that about balls, now can you??

    • erika

      Its the same as for women ultimately it is not just the clothes but the accessories and how you wear them. Okay the clothes too and depending upon how you lace a shoe or roll or don’t roll a pant and fit. There are still endless possibilities with just jeans ad a tshirt

  • the (un?)social butterfly

    The ability to kind of make a baby out of two tiny little cells is really cool. But I think what I like the most about being a woman is the aesthetic freedom we are given. Our limits are so much broader, from fashion to pretty much anything else we are much more free, “allowed” if you will, to mix and match testosterone and estrogen in the dosages we please, and that’s much much cooler than having to justify oneself to your oger friends for using hand cream or to being forced into very much binary stereotypes of the heterosexual or homosexual male.

I love competing with my best friends to look good for each other, and making plans and being sassy but, also being able to be ourselves and stupid. They my tomboyfriends….

  • Sarah

    Honestly Leandra, I’m sorely disappointed. Your homage to International Women’s Day consists of a rather demeaning image of hypersexualized cartoon “women” and a personal affinity for bikinis, makeup, and dresses. Seriously, WTF?! So many inspiring and notable women paved the way through the suffrage movement, the civil rights movement, and the feminist movement and all your grateful for are trivial, superficial freedoms? How about, “I like that I am able to self-publish my writing on a daily basis without having to use a masculine sounding pen name.” Or maybe, “I like that I am supported by thousands of readers who are also women and have the freedom to self-express, completely uncensored.” Or perhaps, “I like that I am free to choose my own partner, or no partner at all. I like that I can earn my own money and spend it however I want (e.g. shoes!). I like that I can relax after work, not worry about taking care of anyone else, and waste my time reading frivolous blogs without fear of persecution.” Sure, I too love sunbathing in a bikini and having the option to wear makeup or dresses whenever I choose, but I also have a deep respect for the thousands of women before me who worked so hard and made significant sacrifices in order for me to have the aforementioned freedoms. That said, I feel that your post minimizes their great efforts and does nothing to sincerely honor women the way that International Women’s Day is intended to. Please consider this the next time you decide to write about such a meaningful holiday.

    • Masa Torbica

      This is an excellent point, and I agree so completely. I think you do a good job of making it a constructive comment rather than a totally snarky complaint, and I hope that all the readers who pause over your comment can take a moment to appreciate the truth of your observations. It’s wonderful that we CAN enjoy the frivolities, but I completely agree that it is crucial to ponder the legacies that came before us, AND the magnitude of struggles other women are facing today, all over the world…
      That said, it is refreshing to see a fashion blog encouraging readers to have this dialogue, we are on the right track to be talking like this!

    • Chloe

      Leandra is an intelligent, educated woman, and I am sure that her post by no means was written to imply that she DOESN’T enjoy those rights you listed. Yes, you are entitled to your own opinion and your opinion was expressed in a respectable manner but to critique her for not including efforts of women from the past does not seem entirely appropriate, considering she enjoys entertaining on her blog with her witty humor- not intentionally disregarding the value of such a ‘holiday’. I was not offended in any way by this post and I’m sure any woman wouldn’t even have to answer whether or not they have respect for the efforts of women who fought and continue to in order for us to have our rights. I would think that the majority of the time, it’s a given.

    • Leandra Medine

      Sarah–sorry that you are disappointed. This post certainly did not intend to minimize the efforts of all the phenomenal women who have paved a path for us and you will see that toward the middle of next week in a post that is currently in queue. My intention here was to have women speak to what they love most about themselves. Nothing else. Thank you for your feedback, though.

    • the (un?)social butterfly

      I don’t think those are reasons why I should like being a woman. Those are reasons why I like being a person in a time when civil rights equality actually mean something. Those are fundamental freedoms, and thanks to all those women who fought for them in early times, I don’t need to feel thankful for them anymore. I can take them for granted, which I do, gladly. I think it’s about time we stop honoring so much the fact that we are finally almost seen as humans by most people (not only men — women are sexist too). By this I don’t mean women or anyone should pretend there is nothing else worth fighting for in the gender arena, but no, I’m not thankful because I can be a red haired woman and not be convicted for witchcraft and burned in a stake — to keep these dated concerns as alive as you apparently do takes energy away from the issues we actually do still have to tackle.

      I think Leandra was exactly right in her approach. Yes, how are we truly different from men? Boobs? Uterus? Yeah, that’s what I like about being a woman. The capacity most of us have of at some point bearing babies and feeding them sounds to me like a very adequate reply to the case in point: why I enjoy being a WOMAN. Having the same rights as men do — that is a reply that doesn’t even make any sense if the actual question is considered, no?

    Haven’t read ‘Lean In’ yet but did read this a few days ago in WSJ. I have no way to compare one to the other, as I haven’t yet read the book. It’s a counter to Sandberg’s book and only help’s to provide a healthy discussion on the technicalities of the working women — from working women. Goes to show that while I think we celebrate each other, being female, and harboring vaginas at large, we do and can differ in our ways of doing things and our beliefs. There’s no right or wrong way but all have an underlying root in the notion that every day is International Women’s Day. Multi-faceted, really.

    @ Sarah : I take a chance here cause I’m sorely lacking in estrogen (but I did go drag one Halloween and so something of that stayed with me I suppose and I’m happy for that); but, I think you confuse being a /human being/ with being a /woman/ (lest you should imply that the topic of Medine’s initial post should be more so about undoing wrongs and perceptions done and of women more so that a simple and very playful celebration of such).

    Marie Curie is one of my personal heroes; seriously, I very near worship her memory. Why? Because it’s because of her that my mother can be cured of breast cancer; it’s because of her that my cousin can have his fractured pelvis diagnosed as such and ultimately be healed of such (xray, yo!). But I love her because she represents the greatest thing about being a human (many of your own points)…not because she did so as a woman; fuck, her gender has never once entered my mind (nor the other women I personally know who are equally fond of her).

    So yeah, I kind of like the lighted hearted, body-pride, sex-pride tone of Medine’s post, I enjoyed the (“fuck yeah!”) tone of it, her irreverent, though quite versatile use of language, and, as a big fan of Storm, Rogue, Dazzler, Jean Grey, Mystique and more…I totally think the comic book metaphor rocked; I’m pretty sure the title of this was not, “Fuck Men, Man! I Can Do That Too!” ;-)

    This isn’t meant to be an attack by any means (Sarah), simply a little rant about a kind of serious idea (being Human) and with none too little humor to boot. You truly inspired a thought in me and for that, your counterpoint is very welcome. So thanks for that.

    And no. At least not with me. Shania Twain is /not/ big in Texas. I think she sucks ass.

    I completely agree with the comments on here-I love how we have somewhat-unlimited choices of dress-we can be tomboy-ish the next day or chic glamazons the next-all depending on how we feel.

    I love so many things about being a woman, but they more so apply to just being a person (like dressing how I want, studying a subject I want, getting what job I want, etc.). What I love about being a woman is being able to drive men crazy with sex appeal. It’s more difficult for men to turn women on but I love being able to turn men on through the easiest things. It’s a small sense of control especially when men control most of society.

    Hi Leandra, as a recent follower known as” Fashionexplorer “and French on top of it, I would say that I had a good belly laugh when I read your post!. It may sound superficial but it feels good. I love being me because I own my power, meaning ,among other things, I decide to change career and do what I always wanted to do, that is to work in Fashion. No one can stop me nor stand in my way. I am free to choose who I want to be in spite of the challenges along the way, I say challenges not difficulties, not odds. Feminists fought for the privileges I own now as a woman. I treasure and cherish them. I also always look on the bright side of being a woman: make-up, I love red lipsticks and killer heels, I love cooking, reading books, exchanging ideas, growing as a human being not only as a woman….I celebrate being a living me. xo xo. I love your fun way to say in the open the word vagina..hilarious!!

    Referring to answer 2, I’m sometimes wondering if women looked and felt more like women back in the 1920’s when they could only wear dresses and skirts. However I’m glad to have the choice to decide on who I want to be by selecting what I want to wear.

    On a totally unrelated note, can you please do a post on girls? I have so many feelings and thoughts I want to express and so many things I want to hear from fellow readers. Thank you.

    As cliche’ as this sounds, I love being me because I have a world of opportunity ahead of me. My parents have spent their entire life instilling all of the values in me that I need to succeed. I am endlessly grateful for them and each and every day make decisions to move myself forward. Just recently, I began working on my MBA. I love being me and being a woman because the world is our oyster.

    Let me quote Beyonce here, “We run this fucking world, hey!”

    Please start your own magazine. Or, better yet, your own publishing company. Write the way you write, style the way you style, and don’t forget to include images of girls who look like your diverse body of readers (this one has brown skin, dreadlocks, big eyebrows, and the calves of a soccer player (QUADRUPLE WHAMMY!!!)). That way I can enjoy pieces about man repelling fashion and also celebrate myself through articles like this one. And I can post them on the physical walls of my room and make collages. After all, I already stopped reading NYLON and began turning to your blog for my daily inspiration.

    Fanks for all ya do, homie! Yer da best and I mean it

    Read about Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In in Newsweek a few weeks ago, and I’m not sure I agreed with her views 100%, although her intentions are good…anyway, love being a woman because we are soft, gentle, romantic, and we can dress up much more! Yeah weird reasons but thats what I think.

    I personally love being a woman because otherwise, I would not get to partake in shopping, makeup, and wearing bikinis! My latest bikini obsessions are these: http://www.theorchidboutique.com/blog/new-malai-bikini/
