easier said than done tbh. it is really difficult to be a woman in the re-enacting field. people expect you to conform to your gender role because they consider it “historical accuracy” that women shouldn’t be in “men’s roles” - regardless of whether or not the re-enactor is cross-dressing and/or how well they pass, the authenticity of their gear, etc. i would love to do a DRK or SS-helferin set regardless - but my interest and knowledge is primarily with the wehrmacht, and so that’s what i want to re-enact the most.
in general the re-enacting community tends towards elitism and sexism, from what i’ve observed. especially if you get something wrong - and if you’re a woman who doesn’t know everything, you’re toast - you’re a dumb whore doing things for attention.
not to be a ~*whiny feminist*~ or anything. it is frustrating. i don’t have the funds/means to even attempt a nice set right now, but when i do - i swear to fucking god i am going to pull out every fucking stop i can in regards to accuracy (including haircut and chest binding), just so no one will have any reason to pick on me. i want my accuracy to be a big middle finger. i want to say “fuck you” to people who would otherwise judge me based on my gender - as if it bears any reflection on what i know, ugh.
