Repeat after me:
SKINNY SHAMING IS NOT OKAY.
FAT SHAMING IS NOT OKAY.
BODY SHAMING OF ANY KIND, IS NOT OKAY.
Apology letter to my body
What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.

Are vulva and vagina really such scary words?
Let me just explain something about uncut penises:
Human males are born with foreskin.
There is nothing wrong with men having a natural piece of their body still intact just because society decided to start cutting off everyone elses.
Stop talking about intact penises like their some rare disease.
Virgin-shaming is just as bad as slut-shaming.
Judging people for how many people they’ve had sex with is a stupid thing to do.
There is way too much peer pressure amongst young people to lose your virginity as soon as you can.
Laughing at someone who hasn’t had sex yet encourages them to participate in an activity that they know they are not ready for and that they will regret.
Automatically assuming that “that virgin” is religiously indoctrinated or in some way oppressed is also unhelpful and inaccurate.
Have as much or as little sex as you want; so long as it’s consensual and safe, but don’t make others feel bad about not making the same decisions as you!
“Fat people have the right to exist in fat bodies regardless of how we got fat, what being fat means, or if we could be thin through some means – however easy or difficult. There are no other valid opinions on this – we have the right to exist without shaming, bullying or stigmatization, period.”
We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
