The author makes many good points, so I’m just going to expand upon one she missed: a woman wearing a flower isn’t going to change anything for anyone. Know why? Women are already expected to wear flowers. That’s what they’re supposed to do. It’s not revolutionary; it’s not even going to stand out. Which is why it’s so sad to see that event organizer really wants to make a difference, but then comes up with an idea that is already set up to go nowhere.
Here’s an example of an event which could actually make a difference if enough people did it: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=333321407344&v=info On May 15, men everywhere were invited to wear skirts. Because they can. And because it’s time to start fighting against the ideas that only certain people can be feminine, that being feminine is bad, that skirts are always feminine, and that being masculine is incompatible with elements of femininity. Some men were all “but I don’t look good in skirts mumblemumblemumble” and some men were all “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!” Not that everyone is obligated to join every revolution, but to the ones who join in this cause, I applaud you.
