"She's either a schizophrenic or a feminist."

Feminist Hears Voices in Her Head
Julie Zeilinger (@juliezeilinger) has found a new feminist hero:
[F]eminist vlogger Kat Lazo . . . recently decided to stride confidently around her Queens, New York, neighborhood in the nude, and then post footage of the NSFW stroll online for the masses to see.
“I can say that there hasn’t been a day where I’m not consciously fighting against the voices in my head from the pressures of society’s beauty standards,” Lazo writes in a blog post explaining her decision to film the video. “It’s exhausting to constantly reject the lies that the media and sometimes even your own family feeds you. . . . I wanted to silence all the voices in my head so I could hear my own voice.”
Consulting a few online psychiatric sources, we learn that people who hear voices in their head and run around naked may be suffering from schizophrenia. Haldol or Thorazine are often prescribed to control these symptoms. But the feminist lunatics are running the asylum:
At the end of the day, Lazo . . . wants to “challenge the media, question social norms and encourage young folks, particularly young women, to think critically about the world.”
Sure. Go ahead. “Think critically about the world.” But don’t forget that the world is also thinking critically about you, and we’re pretty sure you need a daily dose of Thorazine.
Why be forced to choose, when both can be true? And that NSFW stroll? Very unexciting.

Clothes are one of the few things that distinguish man from his closest relatives in the animal world, indeed the whole animal world. Anyone would want to give up that advantage in New York in winter is clearly crazy.
