Why doesn’t anyone discuss how society’s perceived ownership of the female body extends into parents who dictate everything their daughters do?
Not letting your daughters express themselves in how they dress, talk, wear their hair, or whether or not they wear makeup just gives them the idea, from an extremely young age, that their body is not their own and they must please others by making it look how they view best.
Learn that before you have children.
how many times is it appropriate to say ‘what’ before you nod and smile because you still didn’t hear what they said
I love when I get complimented on things that aren’t my appearance Don’t get me wrong, I love to be called pretty/cute/beautiful ect, but I love when people compliment my laugh. Or the way I sound when I just wake up. The way my hair falls naturally. How I say a certain word. Just the way that I am. I love that.
