I cannot tell you how much emotional stress the term “lady-like” has caused me in my years of growing up. Literally force-fed this idea that I always had to be skinnier & that I needed to be more feminine if I wanted to have a better future with a husband to love me.
But lemme tell you what, it’s all bullshit.
The best thing i do for myself is pay attention to what I want, rather than what anyone else wants. I love my muscles. I love wearing crop tops out and about. And when people on Facebook tell me I’m dressing like a “hoochie” or someone tells me quads don’t look very feminine, I giggle and keep going.
We are all so so so different. I drool over dainty women with cute little natural thigh gaps, but I also drool over women with biceps the size of my head, and women with asses naturally fatter than I’ll ever achieve. Women empower women and it’s as simple as that 🤷🏼♀️ happy #internationalwomensday ladies!!!
