Jennifer Lawrence says she chose to be cold as she attacks ‘ridiculous’ feminists for criticising her revealing dress

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in February 2018:

The dress was reminiscent of Liz Hurley's famous safety pin number

Our thanks to Mike P for this. Jennifer Lawrence responded to the inevitable manginas and crones (Robert Webb, Helen Lewis, Sam Smethers of the Force It Society…). An extract:

Lawrence responded to critics in an impassioned Facebook post, writing: “This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I’m going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice.

“This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It’s creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!”

Good points, well made.
