There is something I have refused to participate in, that is the war against women who are not "curvy". There are too many songs, too many articles, too much - in my opinion - bullying of women who are not full of curves, overweight or "thick in the sticks." When did we women decide it was okay to hate - really hate and bully - other women? Don't we have enough of that garbage out there in the media, out in society, in advertising, by simply living in a patriarchal society? There is enough hate against the female gender without women rising up to hate each other! All women are equal - my girlfriends who are short and plumply are beautiful. My girlfriends who are tall and very slender, are beautiful. My girlfriends who are medium-height and very overweight are beautiful. Stand up against all these posts and messages that state only curvy women are beautiful. Refuse to support and refuse to pass on messages that state if a women is thin that she is ugly. Stand in the shoes of the one you mock, feel how it feels and then, stand up to say "It doesn't matter your weight, your height, the colour of your skin, it is your heart that shines through which creates the beauty, you are all beautiful."
End this bullying of women................men I also speak to you. No more war between one weight or another, one build or another, accept that we are different and celebrate the differences.
End the bullying.....end it today.
