It's kind of like the female equivalent of slashing yourself

To clarify for those of you not up on the terminology - "slashing yourself" in a gay sense, rather than the self harm sense.

Perhaps that's it, though, it makes men have to confront homoeroticism in a way that makes them uncomfortable - attractive women signifying as men. (While slash is, conversely, signifying attractive men as women.)

No, I think it's because it's some wacky student indie bullshit tbh.

Yeah now I see how you can read it like that, but I don't think it's a conscious effort on the part of fake-moustache-wearing girls. I really really doubt most of the girls in these photos are thinking 'look at me subverting the dominant paradigm!!' and I would guess that even fewer have any idea of what slashing is in that sense.

Ah, so it's the usual LBZC hating on other people having more fun than they are.

And yeah, of course, SS, you're right. I mean, how could a bunch of INDIE GIRLS in COLLEGE possibly be having any deep philosophical thoughts, how silly of me to even give them that kind of credit. Because, yeah, I never had a deep thought in my head when I was an indie girl at LOLcollege.

I'm not even gonna click on that. I'm actually really beginning to hate the Onion. Don't you ever get, well... bored of being slightly ironically mocking about *everything*?

Sneaky Sneaky Prog Friend (Masonic Boom), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:01 (5 years ago) Permalink

I'm hungover and it's more screaming spittle-flecked hatred for myself outwards than slight ironic mocking. And I for real don't want to get into a custard pie fight with you Kate, but the idea that the only reason somebody might dislike this is because they're threatened by upfront sexual subversion is like saying the only reason I dislike the University hockey club bellowing "God Save the Queen" in my local is because I'm threatened by their beautiful singing voices.

Sugban Stevens (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:04 (5 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, but the spittle-flecked hatred on ILX is alway so much more vipituous, especially from the LBZC, when attractive women are involved. You know?

Sneaky Sneaky Prog Friend (Masonic Boom), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

I can actually see why you might say that but I still think it's bollocks.

Sugban Stevens (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:08 (5 years ago) Permalink

Happy to be corrected if you can evidence your claim, though.

Sugban Stevens (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:08 (5 years ago) Permalink

I have never seen an indie girl wearing a comedy moustache.

Pashmina, Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:10 (5 years ago) Permalink

In fact I'm still not entirely convinced that Dom didn't just make it all up.

Pashmina, Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:11 (5 years ago) Permalink

Err, Pash, there's dozens of pictures upthread.

Sugban Stevens (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:12 (5 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, but they're pictures off the interweb, I mean you could back up just about any proposal, no matter how far-fetched, using pictures scavenged off the interweb, no?

Pashmina, Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:13 (5 years ago) Permalink

(i realise that this is a somewhat shaky argument)

Pashmina, Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:14 (5 years ago) Permalink

One of the many great aspects of living in the future.

I could give a toss about this, but rilly the evidence is there.

Should probably start a thread about cross-dressing rugby club members, for balance.

Hi Kate,

Are you associating me with LZBC? If so, why?

Also I didn't mean to imply that these women aren't capable of thought and I find it a bit surprising you'd twist my comment that way. I really just think they're having fun and I would be surprised if a majority of them thought they were being subversive. I don't actually have anything against other girls (attractive or not) wearing comedy moustaches. I think it's a bit silly but hey they're enjoying themselves and they're not hurting anyone else.

Well, quite. Me either TBH. It occurs to me that Frida was pretty hott:

..and she didn't have a "comedy" moustache, she had a real one. Other than that, whatever!

Kahlo great but not really doing it to freak out the sexist guyz I don't think.

so sick of this shit.

Adam Bruneau, Saturday, 28 February 2009 15:58 (5 years ago) Permalink

it's sexist to think a tache signifies 'male' imho.

spnknghands (special guest stars mark bronson), Saturday, 28 February 2009 17:32 (5 years ago) Permalink

I thought men were supposed to find it all "woo, hott" when women "lezzed up" - or does this not count because it's so obviously driven by female, rather then male desires?

Some many kinds of wrong here in one convenient-sized question.

Bob Six, Saturday, 28 February 2009 18:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

i think it just looks awful all in a row like this. on its own on someone's random profile, i reckon it's pretty funny.

New York Beard and Moustache Competition

On March 14 at Public Assembly, the finest facial hair-sporting denizens of Brooklyn went face to face for the distinction of winning in various categories including the "recession" beard, full beard freestyle, and women's artificial.

what happened? I'm confused. (sarahel), Monday, 16 March 2009 22:00 (5 years ago) Permalink

It'd be interesting to determine: is the problem with this that it's indie girls, or is it the "LOLmoustache!!!" concept in general? Because I find the latter extremely tedious and annoying. Like, these are the same people who will insist that various things in mainstream comedy aren't funny all by themselves, but somehow stupid beard = "hilarious" rather than "played out from being sort of barely funny three years ago." I guess this makes me part of the fun-hating crowd mentioned above, but I think there's a large gulf that separates fun-hating from afraid-of-empowered-women fun-hating.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 16 March 2009 22:15 (5 years ago) Permalink

Because let me tell you, it's really annoying to be trying to have a conversation with somebody and every five minutes their friend has to shriek about how hilarious their fake moustache is.

Seriously, how good a disguise is a drawn-on mustache?
