So today I decided it would be nice to rock triple denim, so I wore a denim jacket, a denim top and shorts. It was rainy so I threw some stockings underneath. They look kind of like this:

How Do I Deal With Slut-Shamey Parents? (Possible TW) [UPDATE]

I found them really really pretty and I was so happy to wear them after having them in my closet for more than a year now. However, when I went downstairs, my mom immediately exploded. WHY ARE YOU WEARING THAT? She called me a hooker, and I went into the car because my dad was sending me to university along the way. Then she chased me into the car with a pair of scissors and it was so fucking scary I just grasped her hand and didn't let her move because I didn't want my stockings to die, nor do I want cuts on my legs. My mother has a history of beating me (most recently when I was seventeen with a hanger, I had scars for months and they were bleeding) but I have decided I wouldn't let it happen again. I'm stronger now. I know she did a lot for me but I don't think I should be beaten again. And I didn't know how she was going to use those scissors.

My dad then launched into this tirade, about how women dress up for men, and how naked women standing on streets invite attention. He said that women invite rapists, they're "asking for it". It pains me to hear MRA arguments coming out of my dad's mouth and I was almost screaming out of frustration. He said his arguments were based on facts. He said that this was what hookers wear. He said that it was biological- and that when men look at women like these they get erections, which was like WHOA BIG NEWS I DIDN'T KNOW SEXUAL AROUSAL EXISTS. (I countered this by saying women's clitorises enlarge as well) He gave the old unattended wallet and stealing analogy which was also enraging. He said I didn't understand men. My dad thinks men are better than women in a lot of things (professional cooking, business, etc) and he can't explain why. He thinks women are meant to be more nurturing and to know how to cook.

How? I suppose the easiest way would be to obey my parents and wear whatever they like me to but these stockings are so pretty and they aren't revealing in any way. I'm also super feminist and I can't stand being in a household where women are disrespected and sexualized based on what they wear. I need your help!!!

ETA- this is me:
