This is going to get shared all over the place!
I couldn’t agree with Part time Monster more.
The world as we know it has stolen women’s voices from them. We aren’t given pertinent information which we, as women NEED in order to make more informed decisions about our own bodies!
We are taught that anything feminine, when it pertains to ourselves, is dirty and wrong. But WATCH OUT, a man might think you want things you don’t if you wear a skirt/dress/tank top/yoga pants/anything too tight or revealing.
Women are shamed when it comes to their bodies.
We aren’t taught that feminine is beautiful. We aren’t taught that a woman has a place in this world and it isn’t necessarily submitting to her husband.
However, we are taught to cover ourselves up (not that that stops those who want to brutalize us). We are taught that menstruation is dirty and gross. We are taught that breast feeding is excellent for the baby but don’t EVER do it in public!
We are taught all of this, or not, yet women are constantly sexualised in commercials. How else are they going to sell all those pretty looking cars? It couldn’t possibly be because it’s a good product, could it?
We are taught that it’s perfectly fine for a man to go out in public wearing a skin tight pair of jeans, shirt and boots and they won’t be accosted or receive unwanted advances. We are taught that women should EXPECT those unwanted advances, or worse, if she so much as shows her ankles or her cleavage or nothing at all!
We should be able to go out, in public, all by our lonesome or with a group of female friends and be able to enjoy ourselves without having to constantly look over our shoulders, never leave our drinks untended, don’t dance too close, don’t be provocative, ad infinitim!
Women, it’s time we took back what is OURS by right of birth! Our bodies belong to nobody but us yet governments are trying to tell us that they will make certain decisions for us (I am NOT going to get into the whole abortion debate. It’s too deep and too easy to offend someone without meaning to).
What happens to MY body is my decision and my decision alone!
If I say no, I do NOT want to have sex that should be the end of the discussion!
If I say NO to anything at all, that should be the end of the discussion!
Thank you for listening to my long winded rant, lol.
Have a good evening.
Ladies, we need to talk. And I don’t mean that in the sense of “come here, I’m going to tell you something.” Not the way it’s usually meant, when someone says “w…
