Real men don’t speak aloud about the female form, if you didn’t know read your man code bible. We look, we might look twice, we look to catch the confirming glance of a fellow male and then we keep stepping.
Social media is a whole other game, its like Ice T says. But that’s not the whole story, women need to get with the program and stop dissing on other women.
That old saying “stick and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”, is a LIE. According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, eating disorders affect every woman you know. Grandmother, mothers and daughter are either currently suffering or have recurrent body image problems.
Bullying over the internet is a major problem. No one immune, Serena Williams is arguable the most athlete of any sex in history. After winning her 21st Grand Slam tournament (4 in a row). Some online media outfit accuses her of being fat. A guy took to twitter and called her physique masculine.
Female athletes feel that they must balance between being the best athlete they can be or fit society’s views of the female physique. A body image where thin is never thin enough. We must pay homage to Sir Mix-a-lot and Jenny from the block for allow women to have curves.
As a father of a daughter, a brother of 4 sisters and a number nieces, I celebrate who they are, what they can become and their achievements. My family of women of come in all shape and sizes, they are pale and dark skin and everything in between. Maya Angelou said it best, they are women phenomenally! If you have females in your life that you care about share this post.
