Good lord, this thread is more of a shit show right now than the PNW roads (we've just got almost a foot of snow here for the first time in like 5 years)




But srs question: is the Lolita scene/movement similar/the same as the "Doll" movement? My gf and I watched a bunch of these videos on youtube, truly fascinating subculture

It takes "moe/kawaii" culture and turns it up to 11, bringing with it a new set of aesthetic values that deliberately puts off random dudes on the street while providing an avenue to build a kind of non-mainstream, but still distinctly feminine, identity.

It is a culture predicated on the fetishization of a time that never existed as such, bringing out its cutesy elements entirely separated of the oppressive social context that allowed the aristocracy of that time to wander around Versailles gardens playing little games and wearing elaborate frilly dresses. As Kundera aptly said kitsch is the negation of shit, here, metaphorically the symbolically and physically violent social order and concretely the actual scatological regime of dirtiness of the denizens of Versailles, happily shitting and pissing in random corners of the domain and hiding the foul odour of their unwashed bodies with heavy perfume.

When you take a partial object and project into it impulses and desires that should belong to the whole you are engaging in fetishism, it can be a woman's legs or a time period's dresses and tea time traditions.

... and that invalidates what he said how?

 

And I just want to qualify Fuuma's post that fetishization of victorian sensibilities isn't an open invite to sexual fetishization of the style itself, before anyone jumps to that conclusion.
