Shaming

they took the hair on our legs and decided it was a shameful, disgusting thing

they said nothing about their own leg hair

they took our genitals and decided it was an ugly, disgusting and shameful thing, only good enough for them to use for their pleasure

they praised their own genitals and drew them on every corner of this planet

they took our bodies and decided they have to be fragile, small and easy to objectify, or we aren’t worth as human beings anymore

they keep their human value no matter what they look like

they took our periods, neglecting they were all born from them, and decided they were gross and shameful thing, not even to be mentioned in their presence

all pain they have to go through is over-dramatized and talked about constantly

they took our clothes and made it uncomfortable, see through, impractical, revealing, objectifying

then they accused us of distracting them when we wear it, accused us of asking for unwanted touch and abuse when they feel entitled to our bodies

they set us up in a trap then laughed at us for suffering inside of it

they never intended to acknowledge our pain

what’s been done to us is “life”, according to them

what they do to each other is “our fault”, according to them

we’ve been used as scapegoats for their own faults

we’ve been used as toys for their pleasure and satisfaction

we’ve been used as trophies for them to show off their importance

it was enough

I had enough.

Actually, I totally understand the gender wage gap. I mean, come on, it makes total sense!

Men need that extra money for all the tampons they need every month. I mean they can’t control their normal bodily functions, can they?

Men need that extra money for all the makeup they need. I mean if they don’t wear it, they get socially shamed, and thats not exactly fair.

Men need that extra money for all the clothes they buy that they have to cover themselves in so it’s not their fault if they get raped. I mean, it would be their fault if they didn’t anyway, you know? It’s bad enough that they have to walk down the street and get harassed no matter what they’re wearing. And women probably have NO idea how expensive bras are.

Men need that extra money for all that extra pepper spray they need for walking home all alone at night. How else are they going to keep themselves safe???

Men need that extra money for all the birth control they have to take. I mean, women couldn’t possibly understand the struggle of taking the pill every single day at the exact same time or else they might get pregnant, or having to schedule a shot every 3 months. All women have to do is pick up one of those free condoms that come in almost all bathrooms and are handed out free at clinics. Not to mention the weight gain!! Women should seriously have more sympathy.

Men need that extra money for all the gynecologist appointments they need to go to. Ladies, Pap smears aren’t free you know!!!
Men need that extra money for all those waxing appointments and razors they get shunned for not getting. I mean, hair on women isn’t even half as gross than when it’s on a man.

Men need that extra money for the pain medication for their menstrual cramps. Think about it, if they didn’t have them, they’d be bed ridden. They wouldn’t be able to go out, or move even. Women don’t know half that pain.

Women, you don’t even know half the struggle, so stop whinging about it.

Fat Shaming is Horrible

But please, can we use our brains and establish what fat shaming actually is and what it isn’t?

Fat Shaming is…

- Making vicious remarks about someone because of their appearance
- Saying people deserve death because of a physical abnormality
- Using derogatory names and labels to belittle another person

What it is not…

- Doctors with 12+ years of high level medical training saying “Obesity is bad for you
- Diets existing
- Non-obese models  appearing on magazine covers and in movies
- People talking about how they enjoy exercise
- Using science and statistics to convey that heart disease, type two diabetes, bone deformities, respiratory issues, high blood pressure, sleep apnea,  Metabolic syndrome, depression, and cancer are effects of being grossly overweight
- salads
