The Groovin’ The Moo festival held in Canberra over the weekend has stirred people up for all the wrong reasons.
It was because some of the girls decided to wear……whatever they wanted.
Festival attendees wore festival wear. If you’re not sure what ‘festival wear’ has looked like for the past five years, let me catch you up.
It used to be a ballerina who lost her tights but found a pair of denim shorts.
Now it’s more of a black mesh situation or just denim on denim on denim… that’s ripped.
Smush in a healthy dose of glitter and it's a surefire hit.
It's also nobody else's business.
And yet, a Canberra Times article that spoke about how female festival goers opted to wear skirts and singlets became the epicentre of a hate storm on Facebook.
The article did not shame the girls, but it did mention there were bare legs despite a maximum forecast of fifteen degrees.
The hate for the girls came hard and fast.
"You can go out and have a good time in the Cold looking nice all warmed up instead of going out looking like a gronk for goodness sakes (sic). No respect for you girls," one commenter wrote.
"Great.... A great opportunity to look like a Hooker.... Just what we want our daughters to do! Stupid," wrote another.
The following letter is for the people who so openly shared their 'concern' for the girls at Groovin' The Moo...
