Sometimes I find myself judging others and forgetting about my privileges as a white male.
Right now I am speaking specifically about the stigma against women to be thin, look a certain way, and how it is apparent that the more a girl fits into that narrow category of “pretty” seemingly does effect how quickly and easily she will be accepted in society.
Why should I give a shit, as a man who likes women, who has his own standards of what is beautiful and what isn’t?
I think thigh gaps are gross and I am actually getting to a point where a complete lack of body hair is just bizarre to me. So I feel like an asshole just typing this—the female form and how women look should be of no concern to me, whatsoever.
I think women are a billion times more powerful then men. You lot have to put up with some real bullshit. I never have to worry about how I look. I never have to worry about pushing a living creature outta my crotch. I’m being bombarded with roughly a quarter of as many advertisements. Women—you bring new life in to this world. You are a symbol of gentleness and beauty, caring and compassion. I really really really wish that every single one of you thought you were gorgeous.
