Everything girls shouldn’t do at festivals, but do anyway and ruin them
Don’t even think about wearing a flower crown
Thereotically, festival season is supposed to be the best time of the year. Festivals are supposed to be hives of debauchery, escapism, relaxation and fun, a place to listen to whatever music you like, party with your friends, wear what you like and generally just enjoy yourself. And in practice, festival season is exactly that – but like, only if you’re a guy, obviously.
Sadly women who go to festivals are under massive amounts of scrutiny for the same things that men don’t even think about. What they wear, what photos they take and how they act are immediately judged as “basic” by the good, misogynistic people of the internet. Twitter is basically the online hub of the old archaic notion that girls fundamentally don’t understand music, or really, how to have fun. That if you’re at a music festival you’re not there because you actually enjoy it, you’re there as a basic groupie lemming who hasn’t a clue what’s going on.
I know that sounds extreme, but read some of these tweets about the things women are hated for doing at festivals – ranging from being a slut to literally just existing – and tell me it’s not depressingly true.
It baffles me why girls pay to get their makeup done professionally for a festival when they're just gonna gurn it off anyway

Dress ‘like tramps’
Why do girls dress like absolute tramps just because they are going to a festival?

Have your ‘ass hanging out’
girls, if you don't plait your hair, wear black primark sunglasses and have your ass hanging out did you even go to a festival?

To all the girls at Glastonbury sitting in your tent sorting your makeup and taking selfies you can do that shit at home. Why pay £240?

I'm all for the festival look, but why am I seeing girls in bras ? ???

Put in any effort at all
Why do girls go through so much effort to look good at a festival like slap some clothes on and get fucked up man
— bronte (@bronnte) May 2, 2017
Alternatively, put in no effort and dress ‘basic’
Why do girls dress as basic as possible whenever a music festival rolls around? #GTM2017

I hate when girls stress about festival outfits then show up in the most basic shit, 0 accessories & same hair. Stressed about what?

Get on anyone’s shoulders if you’re fat
Why do the fat girls always get on people's shoulders? #Glastonbury

Get on anyone’s shoulders at all
To all the girls who have ever sat on someone's shoulders at a gig/festival: I hate you, everyone hates you

The rules of 2019 have already been decided and there’s nothing we can do about it
People are already mad
by Caroline Phinney
I feel kind of bad for 2019 because people are already mad at it and it hasn't even started. It's like when you get with someone following a breakup and you're already assuming they're cheating on and lying to you, because why would anyone ever be genuine? How can you blame us though? Even if…
Your weekly horoscopes are here, and it looks like someone is finally going to commit
Took long enough
by Codi Cheyenne
When I dip, you dip. The energies of the cosmos seriously slipped last week, and now we’re all rising back up. That means you’re going to have to shake off the dust and become alert. Venus and Saturn will also connect this week, offering us some much-needed connection to other people, as well as clarity…
Your weekly horoscope is all about how to avoid some pretty intense love drama
How to avoid getting dumped after you already bought his Christmas gift
by Codi Cheyenne
Mercury’s retrograde ends on December 6th! How are we celebrating? What better way than with a New Moon in Sagittarius the very next day! If you’re wise, you’ll use this for a fresh start to stop getting caught up in the same dramatic situations playing on repeat and move on. Use this as a chance…
