Ambivalently Yours

Ambivalently yours

Self-expression, a vibrant thought along with the portrait of what is female features in the awesome blog by the anonymous British illustrator Ambivalently yours, she created in 2012, a non-place where conflicting feelings are confronted, reevaluated and emphasized by a bright sense of humour. The idea of ambivalence, which means loving and hating simultaneously, dyes with the feminism’s assertiveness or rather the will of advocating for the woman’s right to choose (though this right does not imply there is only one choice) and the refusal to choose between femininity and feminism, giving rise to another dimension: the space of undeciding( which is much far away from indecision as it arises from a clear will). It’s a delicate and fun journey into the messiness, imperfections and contradictions of femininity, which embodies a dynamism I celebrate.

DINAMISMO, FEMMININILITÀ & FEMMINISMO: LO SPAZIO DEL NON DECIDERE DI AMBIVALENTLY YOURS

Ambivalently yours

Ambivalently yours

L’ espressione di sé, un vibrante pensiero insieme al ritratto di ciò che è femminile è protagonista del fantastico blog dell’ illustratrice anonima inglese Ambivalently yours, da lei creato nel 2012, un luogo in cui sentimenti contrapposti sono messi a confronto, rivalutati ed enfatizzati da un brillante umorismo. L’ idea dell’ ambivalenza, che equivale a amare e odiare contemporaneamente, si tinge dell’ assertività del femminismo o meglio della volontà di rivendicare il diritto della donna di scegliere (benché questo diritto non implichi che esista un’ unica scelta) ed il rifiuto di scegliere tra femminilità e femminismo, dando vita a un’ altra dimensione: lo spazio del non decidere (che è ben lungi dall’ indecisione poiché esso nasce da un chiaro volere) Un delicato e divertente viaggio nella confusione, nelle imperfezioni e contraddizioni della femminilità che racchiude in sé un dinamismo che celebro.
