Is It Too Trashy To Wear Short Shorts In The Summer?

As someone who identifies as a girl, I must say that shorts are pretty much a lifesaver. When it’s hot out, the last thing I want to do is pull on a pair of super tight jeans or leggings and walk around in 90 degree weather, sweating like a pig. TBH, I don’t know why that’s a saying… do pigs sweat a lot? Whatever. The point is that being comfortable is VERY important when you are walking around in the summer, and things like skirts, dresses, and shorts are super helpful. But… is it trashy to wear short shorts out in public? One woman seemed to think so, and called out a teenager for doing just that.

So, Madison is pissed off at an older woman who called her trashy while she was out and about. Rightfully so! No matter what she’s wearing, it’s pretty messed up to call someone trashy. Unless she was wearing a literal trash bag, but that’s a different story. For reference, here is what she was wearing:

First of all, she looks comfy AF, which is how you want to be in the summer heat. Second of all, why did this old woman feel the need to call her out? She asked her if she was wearing shorts, which is rude. Madison wasn’t bothering this old woman, she was just minding her business, probably out and about running errands or something on a hot summer day. We’ve all been there! Honestly, this stuff is just annoying and unfair. What somebody wears isn’t anyone else’s business, and it’s time for people to understand that, right?

I do understand that it looks like she was just wearing a shirt, but the fact that she even asked Madison if she was wearing shorts is so weird. Honestly, I’m upset that this girl was called out in front of people, but I’m even more upset that it was by another woman. Being slut-shamed in general is bad enough – it stings extra hard when a female is doing it. Being a girl is hard enough as it is, and while we don’t all need to love each other, we shouldn’t be tearing each other down for no real reason.

Please, don’t comment on other people’s clothes, unless it’s to tell them how fabulous they look. It’s just not your business.Wearing shorts isn’t “what’s wrong with this generation.” That is a pretty ridiculous comment, IMO. If anything, it makes this generation different because we put comfort over style. If she’s comfortable, why should it matter? If it’s hot out, young woman and girls shouldn’t feel the need to dress up in pants and tights. It’s just not practical.
