Queen Helen has something she wants to say about herself – and she’s using a sheer skirt to say it.
Now, we’ll grant you that we do not have a long established history of praising sheer skirts. Quite the opposite. And while we have no intention of weighing in on this question, we know some feminists might consider the idea of a pricey, panty-baring skirt declaring one’s feminism to be a whole set of problems. But it’s a time of heightened awareness, a time of more militantly stated beliefs, and a time when women in the entertainment industry in particular are wrestling with long-ignored questions about systemic misogyny and abuse. If 72-year-old Queen Helen of the Island Nation of Fuckinfantastica wants to step out in a moto and a sheer skirt declaring her bona fides? We can’t see that as anything but all kinds of kickass.
