To the brave girls of Edmonton

Thank you to the 6 (at least) girls who wore thong bikinis (and 1 g-string) to the water park yesterday. Usually I see them on foreign people, it’s so good to see locals being brave and supporting the feminist cause.

I’ll wear my cute suits to the beach but go conservative at indoor places, I was half tempted to take my kids back to the change room to thong it up myself.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Pizza planet truck made my day!

Keep being supportive, we deserve to wear what we choose without all the hate. Thanks

    Wow I have to say that you praising 6 women in thongs at the waterpark and comparing it to feminist cause is so sad. I’m all for anyone wearing what they want but to compare the two is laugahable. Watch the gross comments from creepy guys coming your way. A woman who uses her mind and knowledge is furthering the cause not women almost naked parading around.

      Ummmm have you ever seen a feminist protest? They dress as vaginas and go top less. And to imply that they don’t have brains because they wore a bikini to a pool is crazy.

      What would you decide they wear well also saying they should wear what they want?

      Ayah Hamade they were at a pool get a grip, who objectified them? And who do they have to prove anything too? You?

      Remember ladies always bring a dictionary to read at the pool well wearing your “Ayah” approved bathing suit so you don’t set back your rights. And don’t worry she doesn’t even need to see it to decide if it is inappropriate or not.

    • Ayah Hamade please ignore the awful comments about you’re hijab. As Kait Priest so eloquently put, you’re comment was not misunderstood. Personally, I believe as women become more confident in attire others find immodest, it is reenforcing the idea that our bodies are BODIES and not sex objects. Sexualizing women because of exposed butt cheeks is pretty silly.

    • Ayah Hamade Ayah Hamade says:

      “Ummm” yes i have seen those ones and those ones are deemed just as backwards. Why be objectified to prove you have brains. Why not just use them sincerely. I dont think there is anything wrong with them wearing what they were wearing. You obviously didn’t understand my comment. I just found it funny that with the 100yrs of history of women fighting in the name of femisim, girls half naked in the pool furthers the femenist cause.

    • No one gets to tell another woman they are not a feminist because of what they wear. Actually you don’t get to denounce another woman’s feminist views for any reason. Just as you feel liberated in your hijab, these women feel liberated in their bikinis and it definitely not up to you to decide if they have brains or not biased on their attire.

    • sorry not everyone is as prudish about their bodies as you are? Have you considered the fact that this sort of need for “modesty” here in North America isn’t how it is everywhere else? Everyone has a body, why are you so shocked every time you see one?

      [0]
    • Ayah Hamade Ayah Hamade says:

      Kyle Burwood, Whitney Lewinsky and Carly Schlamp , you three completely misunderstood my whole comment. You are judging me because of my hijab and assume because of my religion, I must be either brainwashed or opressed. AGAIN, I don’t have a problem with what they were wearing, I personally don’t feel a woman dressed in that way furthers the feminist cause. That was the issue and my personal opinion.

      Carly, why would you assume I think north america needs modesty and that I’m shocked at seeing a body? Because I happen to wear a hijab? I was actually born and raised here so I definitely don’t need you teaching me about north american culture or traditions.

      Lol opinions are like assholes… everyone has one.

      Recently my husband and I stumbled upon one of Alberta’s only nude beaches while looking for a good fishing spot.
      There was plenty that was seen. But I never felt the need to shout out to these brave women for baring all. Because obviously they are doing it for themselves… not to prove their feminists ways.
      WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG??!!!??

    • Kait Priest Kait Priest says:

      No one misunderstood you or is judging you based on your scarf or (assumed) religion (although assuming that you weren’t born here and that you need to “learn” about North America was rude). Whitney’s point was that no one should tell you to uncover yourself, and likewise, no one should tell other women to cover up. You don’t have to chose it for yourself, but being a feminist means giving other women the space to express themselves in whatever way they want – from the niquab all the way to being nude. You don’t have to like other women’s choices, but you don’t need to shame them for it.

      I will defend your right to wear your scarf for as long as you wear it. I’ll also defend the girls wearing a thong bikini to the swimming pool for as long as they wear them. My personal modesty choices do not dictate my opinion of what other people choose for themselves. So if you feel that being naked doesn’t further the cause, then feel that way, but it’s not for you to come out and say that in an attempt to shame other women into doing what you want.

    • Ayah Hamade Ayah Hamade says:

      Kait Priest i agree with you 100% ..although i also dont think anyone has the right to tell someone what to wear or not. I personally don’t think they furthered the feminist cause. Can you explain how I may be wrong? I didn’t shame them or attack them. I just really don’t think a womens clothing or lack thereof furthers a feminist cause.

    • Kait Priest Kait Priest says:

      Ayah – being allowed the option of wearing what you please without consequence furthers the cause. Extreme modest and extreme not-modesty are two sides of the same coin.

      Women’s bodies have been policed forever. Whether it’s being told that you are wearing too little or too much. It’s me saying that you have the right to cover yourself as much as you want, and you saying that I should be able to wear as little as I want.

      By actively saying that they aren’t furthering the cause is kind of shaming them. It’s like saying that someone who doesn’t show off their body isn’t a feminist, or someone who does show it off isn’t a feminist. Fashion, modesty… it shouldn’t be part of it at all. Part of it is that women want to move away from sexually objectified. We don’t do that by covering up, we do that by demanding that people (of all genders) stop reducing us to our sexual organs. Most feminists want to move to a place where it shouldn’t matter what a person wears, that she’s treated exactly the same.

      I don’t know if I’m articulating well. I hope that helps?

    That’s a lot of grooming going on to wear a thong I applaud those people.

  14. Oh please…Who cares. Kids have bums…We all have bums.. Its not like they were running around with their bare boobs and hoo hoo’s hanging out. Everyone has the right to wear what they want. If you want to helicopter parent your children, keep them home and buy a turtle pool for your kids to play in. Seeing a thong bikini is the least of the issues out there.

  15. I wouldn’t wear a thong in public! I don’t think it’s appropriate and I sure as hell don’t want my kids seeing someone’s ass! Geezes it’s called class! You are lacking!

  20. It is an assumption that females wearing thongs support the feminist cause. For all we know, these women were wearing the suits to be sexy. Who knows.

    [0]
    • And is wanting to be sexy a woman’s prerogative as a feminist or is it further objectifying women? Who can say? I’m on a tangent here… I know. Good writing Kait!

  21. If you wear a thong why wear anything at all???? I am a feminist but barely wearing anything at all and showing off your “ass” ets perpetuates the stigma that women are only seen as sexual objects. Have some self pride and self respect. There are classier ways to show off your attractiveness than naked at a family venue. Have some consideration for people’s children.

  22. Shawna Perez Shawna Perez says:

    Since when is flashing your ass “showing support for a feminist cause”?? The only feminist cause such displays of flesh support are the “men who have small minds and only think women are worth attention and acceptance if they show as much skin as possible because the man is too immature to appreciate a woman for who she is instead of how she looks”. Grow Up, a*hole!!!

  23. Women should be able to wear whatever a man is allowed to wear.

  24. I think it’s funny that instead of focusing on making memories on a fun outing out with your kids you had to stew over what other people were wearing so you could figure out what passive aggressive taunt you could write on the internet the next day. Congratulations, you managed to make a problem out of something that doesn’t effect you. Something tells me those inconsiderate ‘harlots’ had a better time than you did.
