Cranky Smurfette


The blue of these tights is so brilliant that I always feel a bit like a Smurf when I wear them. Since I'm in all blue, and I look pretty cranky in these pics, I am the Cranky Smurfette.






Ever think about the Smurfs? That's Barber Smurf, and Clumsy Smurf and Cobbler Smurf, and the list goes on. Everyone/smurf has an identity based around something they do, or a personality trait. Then there's the lone female Smurf - Smurfette, whose name and identity is based solely on her sex. I mean, even Papa smurf, is a father figure, a leader. I know this might sound crazy, and I don't mean to present some sort of feminist rant. However, even as a little girl, I didn't understand why Smurfette's sole defining feature is the fact she's a female? Nothing expected of her? No role to fulfill? She just had to be the girl. Not cool. Ergo, if I were a Smurf I'd be Cranky Smurfette.

Thanks for smurfing by!

  11. I really love your outfit. Those tights are killer!
    Sidenote: Smurfette doesn't have a definitive role besides being a girl because Gorgamel created her as a way to get rid of Papa Smurf and the rest of the Smurfs but it backfired.
