We are the Survivors

I could talk about the election today and what a mess it has been but I think enough people are talking about it. I decided the only thing I wanted to mention is that I’m proud to see over 4 million people vote for Gary Johnson. I know that’s not even close to being enough but it was noticed. I’m so happy to know I was not alone. Today, I wanted to bring more light to sensitive subject. Continue reading “We are the Survivors”

“Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.”

I have seen more slut shamming this past week than I’d like to admit. Words cannot express how angry that makes me. I tried to write it out yesterday but it was all just jumbled words and thoughts that didn’t really make sense.

We forget how beautiful we are and that our bodies are a wonderful work of art in all of it’s different shapes and sizes.

This is why I fight for Equality

I started calling myself a feminist a few years ago. A few events in my life led me to believe that there is still very much a need for it. Sometimes we have to experience things for ourselves to really understand why it exists. I hate that we have gotten such a bad rep because of a few extremist that don’t fully understand why we believe what we do. Being a feminist is not supposed to be about hating men, or being better. It’s about wanting to be viewed as an equal. It’s about having a choice. Everyone is different and I don’t expect everyone to agree with my views. I am using this article to address some things that I’ve heard people say as to why we don’t need feminist and respond with why we really do. Continue reading “This is why I fight for Equality”
