Are You a Boob?
Woman…who are you? What are you; mystical, smart, enchanting, and compassionate? What defines you? Are you a body part? You know what I mean! Are you defined by your size, shape or overall “looks”?
Or are you like me? Simply a real woman…with hopes, dreams, thoughts, feelings, talents, gifts, strengths and weaknesses?
Frankly, I’m tired of being “viewed” as anything else! I am certainly NOT a boob, butt, waist, plump lips or any of the like.
Women’s Rights, Feminism, Sexual Freedom…I say, whatever! While the concepts and movements produced some great results, a few things have gone a little too far and we find ourselves being bound to a slavery of sorts once again. Seriously, women of the past fought against “cat calls” and sexual harrassment (to name a few things). Yet today we endure much worse than a simple cat call! Women are very degraded and dehumanized in images and roles loaded with hypersexual attributes. Women and girls are being objectified and experiencing sexualization to a degree never before seen in history. All the while, under the guise of sexual freedom. This is not sexual freedom! It is un upscaled form of “cat calling” and harassment; it is bondage. It is sexism! I am greatly offended and the more I speak to women, I find they are offended too. But, they have been made to feel that they shouldn’t be offended and should be ashamed of their feelings so they keep it inside. She is told that “she” is the problem and that the issue is about something other than what it truly is. Blatant distortions of reality are held in this sexualization and it is causing major health issues well known in the psychology world.
If you ARE like me and the many other women I have spoken with, you know exactly what I mean. Have you felt it? Has your spirit been broken? Have you been made to feel less than by media, a man, mean girls and such? Has it left you feeling like nothing when you are actually beautiful on the inside but your value is seen in your body and worth determined by how “sexy” you are?
Are you as sick of it as I am? I say it is time for a NEW Women’s Revolution!
