    i think the dim politics required to give a shit about a local politician attending the charity event for a world famous museum are embarrassing

    its an aesthetic complaint, it's complaining about "elites" in the shallowest sense possible

    the "socialist means anprim" stuff is so so toxic as well as objectively wrong and seeing lefties cave to its frame is sad

    Apparently the theme is In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which... idk wtf that meant so I googled it:
    This year’s Met gala is all about fashion made in the U.S.A. “I’ve been really impressed by American designers’ responses to the social and political climate, particularly around issues of body inclusivity and gender fluidity, and I’m just finding their work very, very self-reflective,” Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu Curator in charge of the Costume Institute, told Vogue. “I really do believe that American fashion is undergoing a renaissance. I think young designers in particular are at the vanguard of discussions about diversity and inclusion, as well as sustainability and transparency, much more so than their European counterparts, maybe with the exception of the English designers.”

    Maybe the dress is thematically appropriate as such?

    I could give a shit if she goes to parties with rich people I just don't see why she wore that particular dress. With that said it doesn't make me think any less of her and I still like her a ton. Just think the dress was a misstep that's all.

    I don’t really get the criticism, it’s an event to be seen, and she chose that opportunity to spread an important message

    it’s also difficult to get “every billionaire is a policy failure” on a dress compared to “tax the rich”

    Ohio passed a voter referendum on redistricting that creates a commission to try to blunt the hyper partisan gerrymandering of current districts.

    There are an elaborate set of rules requiring certain percentages of minority party support for a 10 year plan to pass, but if no one can get along, the Republicans can pass a 4 year plan on party lines.

    The Republicans opened this week with a plan designed to make Ohio even more partisan, The plan received uniform F grades from every independent group who has reviewed it.

    The ppl in here saying it was tone deaf of AOC probably have this in perspective based on their posting history. But for ppl online actually pretending this is a big deal, they must be miserable.

    And that’s something from me, because I feel quite miserable.

    Whole outcry is stupid either way. It wasn't exactly some marketing genius either as if tax the rich wasn't something people already know about/think about. Not like it's some unheard of philosophy that just needed some exposure.
