The scrutiny around women's bodies is so exhausting that often we ourselves buy into the notion that we shouldn’t be feeling comfortable in our own skin. That we should be aspiring towards this godforsaken utopian world where everyone is a size zero, or the right kind of curvy - you know, the one that allows you to be effectively objectified. Our bodies have been policed and politicized - we were asking for it, even when we weren’t. Every third person feels entitled to make an inappropriate remark about our bodies - here are 10 things women do not want to hear about their bodies.
Why? So that I look nothing like myself?
Err…no. But have you lost your mind?
Are you seriously asking me how I can wear clothes?
Exsqueeze me? I have no problem areas, barring you, at this moment.
Nope. My face will just look like itself and I like the idea of not washing my hair every other day.
What do you mean by still? Also, why does an adult have to pick up another adult? Does it count if I can lift him up?
And you could just stop talking, you know?
No, but please tell me, how the heck is my body hair any of your problems?
Nope. My curves (or their lack thereof) are not up for debate. I have better thing to do in life than mope in your incessant critique.
Oh, really? Maybe they can knock the living daylights out of you and then you can change your mind about them?
