Dear Tim,

This letter is about gender and fashion. The other day while watching Project Runway, I heard you chastise one of the designers for making jodhpurs. Aghast, you asked him, "what woman do you know who wants to make her thighs look bigger? To that bit of gender policing, I have to say this:

For being as big of a homo as you are, you're sure quick this season to kick off any designers who make clothes that look too queer. Please tell Heidi she's right: fashion designers are selling to a market: heterosexual, middle class women (and those who love them!). So, I thought I'd give you a little market feedback from the white, queer femme subset:

I like my thighs thick for protection, strung and humming, laid out like a superhero is (keep the tights, get rid of the unrealistically shaped breasts). And my breasts I like strapped down, just a little bit snug to my chest, ever so slightly androgynous, impish. This is the kind of wardrobe a femme's got to make herself.

Regards,
Violet
