Happy international womans day from Boi and I! Although being a girl has its perks, we dont always get it so easy. We don't get to walk down the street and fully feel safe. Instead we keep looking behind us to make sure we're not being followed. We have to dress "appropriately" so men don't think we're asking for sexual attention. We're supposed to watch our mouths, our body language and the way we present ourselves in order to come across as ladylike, otherwise we're considered disrespectful. We are judged by how many men we sleep with, whilst men are praised for it. But I bet not many of those men a actually asked for the woman's consent. So whilst the men go home feeling satisfied, us woman go home feeling used, hopeless and betrayed. Betrayed by men who were put here on earth to protect us not disrespect us. So this is to those woman who have been abused, used and shamed by men. Don't let what happened to you define you. Let it make you stronger, braver and let your story save others who are going through the same thing. Hate what he did but don't hate him and especially don't hate yourself. He will get what he deserves eventually. It's okay to have trust issues, i believe that makes you more aware of the people you choose to hang around with. But remember not every man is like the one who abused you. There are still men out there who will kiss your scars not diss them. We still have a little bit of good left in this world, so when you find it, grab it and don't let go.
Love Boi and Dana
