There is deep, pervasive woman shaming in our society.
You are told to be modest, but don’t be a prude. Be sexy, but if you are your slutty. If attacked, we’ll question what YOU did to deserve it. You’re too fat or skinny. You must sacrifice for others. Don’t be “selfish”. You’re a pushover, or you’re a bitch.
…All of this to control woman. Shame is a form of CONTROL. It is an emotional baseball bat swinging till it finds your soft spot, your self-doubt; that’s where it’ll get you. It’ll make you question yourself or confirm a self-hate.
I think it’s time we stop shaming each other, Ladies. We need to stand together and not let men shame us.
Let’s learn to be SHAMELESS. Let’s find ourselves, learn to love ourselves and be shamelessly ourselves!
That’s right… be SHAMELESSLY YOU!
