Last night a young woman tried to kill herself because a man dissed her body. This morning I took a picture which exposed my mid-section, the part of my body I’m most uncomfortable with, and I posted it on Facebook. Tonight, I was called a dangle (whore).
What was the point of the picture? I hoped that by being real, by being unafraid to stand in front people as I am, I would encourage young women to do the same; to be comfortable with their bodies. No, I wasn’t telling girls to go dress whorish, take pictures and post it.
I was telling young women that we’re human, that we’re beautiful in our own way, that perfection does not equal beauty. So help spread the word, real women, real bodies.
Sharing a quick moment with you while I’m on the go.
