Togetherness. One of the definitions of that word is the quality, state, or condition of being together.
State: the particular condition that someone or something is in at a specific time.
This country right now is sadly very far from a state of togetherness. I see it every day just how divided we are becoming. We all complain about how divided we are becoming but what are we doing to prevent it? What are you doing to prevent being part of the problem instead of the solution?
We need to start seeing beyond race, beyond gender, beyond size and start seeing each other as human beings. We all have the same organs inside of us. Our bodies all operate the same way on the inside no matter what the outside looks like. Tearing each other down all the time is not solving any of the problems that this country is having. It is doing the exact opposite and it’s intensifying them.
Ladies, if we want to be treated as equal to men we need to start acting like equals to each other. We need to stop with all this nonsense of mommy shaming and body shaming. We need to start celebrating being women! Being a woman is a blessing. It’s powerful and beautiful. We have the ability to do something that men can’t do. We have the ability to birth life into the world and that is something magical that only we were given.
Stop looking at women who don’t look like you and judging them because of it. Stop saying every girl that has plastic surgery is a slut. You don’t know their story. We all have body issues so don’t pretend that you never have. Stop saying that if you date a lot of guys your a slut. You don’t know if they are sleeping together or not.
Stop looking at young moms who still dress sexy as sluts. Instead celebrate that these moms still feel sexy. Becoming a mother should not make you stop wanting to be sexy. Sexiness is a feeling that women need to embrace not shame other women over. Yes there is always a line but if they want to dress sexy in their own home let them do it.
Women will not get anywhere unless we stick together and we back each other up. That’s what I have to say.
Intending to sound every bit cliche. In the words of the Clinton campaign all of us men, women, and children are “stronger together”. So we need to come together.
