One daughter is sick and tired of her mother always judging her outfits, so now she’s decided to dress as an emo every day to get back at her.
A Mother’s Backhanded Compliments
Gemma gets backhanded compliments from her mother every day, such as, “You have such a beautiful face, why don’t you want to wear makeup more often?”
Tired of Being Judged
Tired of the constant patronising and backhanded compliments, Gemma has decided that enough is enough with her mother, Jane.
Wishing for Comfort
“I don’t care to dress up even in my own favorite style because I prefer to be comfortable,” Gemma admits.
Judged for Her Choices
Jane always wants Gemma to change her style.
“Your eyes are so pretty, why don’t you wear contacts so your glasses don’t hide them?”
Therapy Fails to Help
Even bringing her mum to a therapy session to stop her from pushing her style onto her daughter didn’t seem to work.
A Bold Fashion Plan
Eager to make her mum change her ways, Gemma struck up a cunning plan.
Embracing Her Unique Style
The next time she visits her parents’ house, she’s decided to go all out in her beloved emo style.
Had Enough of Her Mother
“If she so badly wants me to dress up, then why don’t I do so in my style that she doesn’t like?” Gemma argues.
A Point to Prove
Gemma argues that she’s only doing what her mother wants, and that is caring about her fashion sense and making an effort.
Embarrassing Her Own Mother
“I know she will likely be embarrassed going out in public with me dressed that way and not like it. But maybe telling her I’m simply doing what she wanted me to do will get her to leave me be.”
Support Poured In
Reddit loved her idea to get back at her mother with lots of comments approving her decision.
A Heartwarming Display of Support
“if your mother is embarrassed by you, that’s on her for being so shallow,” One user argued.
“It’s a Little Childish”
“It’s a little childish,” One user suggests, disagreeing with Gemma’s method.
A More Mature Approach?
“that’s super passive aggressive. idk, if it were me, I probably just wouldn’t go visit if my appearance was constantly being judged.” Another user suggests.
