If you tweet, you may have come across the fabulous @_millymoo. She’s a barrister and a clever ‘un too. She introduced me to a new word (coined by @ozgirlnc). MATRONISING – women telling other women that they’re not doing it right; looking down on the beautified.
I’ve got a good degree and a good job and a spray tan and acrylic nails and very high-maintenance hair. My friend runs a car dealership and has breast implants. My Twitter friend has botox and a beauty salon – her hobby’s neuroscience.
I don’t like men who sneer at women for the way they look. Equally, I take it badly when I hear women sneering at other women because they like a nice product.
Twice recently, I’ve been told I can’t be a feminist because I have a Brazilian. I can be whatever I want. Don’t matronise me.
