Before I’m going to talk about this subject, I just wanna point out that I’m a such an unexperienced 17 year old girl who might be totally wrong about this, but this subject is really important to me and I hope you respect my opinion. I’m still learning.
So growing up having a fanaccount for certain celebs, i’ve experienced tons of hate on the site towards them and other celebrities. Especially the last few days. I think all of you know about the nudes that have been leaked and some things really bothered me about that.
There’s a huge amount of girls on Twitter and other social media who express their love for a certain celebrity which are mostly guy artists. That’s totally fine of course, you can like whoever you like, but tons of girls tend to respect that guy more than themselves and that’s not okay. The other day when all these nudes got leaked it really bothered me that all these girls were praising the male celebrity for his nude picture but sent hate to the female ones which is totally not okay. Teenage girls have to realize that if they’re not respecting another woman’s body they’re not respecting their own.
Girls around the world are suffering from insecurity every single day and this proves it. Your body might be different from other women when it comes to curves and all that stuff, but we all have the same body parts, we’re all the same underneath. So hating on another woman’s body makes no sense cause you’re no different.
It’s totally fine to love yourself and feel beautiful. If you have gorgeous, long legs, work that mini skirt, but stay classy and ladylike. If you love to experience with make up, don’t be afraid to go to school or work with a gorgeous eyelook cause you look amazing. You should show guys how fierce you are instead of respecting them and their bodies more than your own cause that’s something you don’t deserve. Women weren’t made to walk after guys like a lost puppy. We also have a voice. Stick up for girls who might have made a mistake by trusting someone with their body, which is not their fault. You do crazy things out of love and trust and making pictures like that is one of them.
‘We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be succesfull otherwise, you will threaten the man.
because i am female, i am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices
always keeping in mind that marriage is most important now. Marriage can be source of joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors. Not for jobs or for accomplishments, which i think can be a good think, but for attention of men. We teach girl that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
Feminist: a person who believes in the social political, and economic equality of the sexes.’
Last but not least this post was made with nothing but love and respect for guys. No hate.
Stay beautiful. Kisses, Anouk
