If there is one thing the world doesn't need any more of, it's grown women judging other grown women's character based on fashion choices.
It's old. It's tired. It's unnecessary. But with Twitter, it's all too easy.
That is why Ayesha Curry's unsolicited and judgmental commentary on the state of women's fashion is still trending hard on the social media site.
The 26-year-old wife of Golden State Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry, and mom of little girl Riley, was thumbing through her Style Weekly Saturday night when she realized that - gasp - women in Hollywood show a lot of skin.
And - double gasp - maybe it's too much.
So she did what many do when they're inspired. She took to social media.
Curry didn't stop there.
Strangely, the latest trends revolve around androgyny and longer skirt lengths. Yet there will always be women - especially celebrities and basketball wives - who will flaunt their stuff in deep Vs, high slits and short skirts.
Nonetheless, Tweeters pounced on Curry like she were Christian Louboutins at a 75 percent off sale.
By Monday morning, there had been 225,000 tweets on the Curry style matter, as well as a few you-go-girl updates from celebrity wives Chrissy Teigen and Khloé Kardashian - both of whom are known for always dressing appropriately. (I hope you can hear the sarcasm dripping from my keyboard.)
Hubby-Curry commented on the too-much décolletage in fashion when he told basketball analyst Rosalyn Gold-Onwude he was proud of his wife. Gold-Onwude tweeted that Curry was "pretty sure some ppl look up to his wife Ayesha bc of what she stands for, how she carries herself & her priorities."
The problem is that her priorities - at least her fashion ones - seem to revolve around her husband's approval. Such tweets also insinuate that women who may not be as chaste as she is aren't living right.
That's not right.
Although this argument about what's appropriate is as old as the red lipstick-is-only-for harlots statement, the latest bluster was likely some millennials' first taste of all that's patriarchal and slut-shaming. You know, cave man ideas that were kept alive by the "good" women lucky enough to have landed one.
Here is the deal: Curry is entitled to her opinion when it comes to her clothing choices.
That's where it stops.
And I admit it. That's hard. After all, we are all a little persnickety when it comes to fashion.
Just last night I found myself shaking my head at the latest peek-a-boo breast dress on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Why so much spillage? I thought. But I kept it to myself. After all, I don't have a right to slay Kenya Moore because I don't approve of her breast exposure - especially in 2016.
As for her poor attitude? That's another column.
