I get a lot of messages saying things like “just wanted to let you woman know small or flat tits are so sexy and cute they are lovely” or “dude I think small boobs are even hotter than big ones.”
And thank you guys, honestly. It’s nice to know all guys aren’t complete douchebags.
But this, and the number of messages I get from girls who feel insecure about their relationships with guys, makes me think.
Why do men feel the need to reassure us that they find us attractive? Why is “beautiful” the highest compliment for a woman? Why does so much hinge on the male gaze?
Sorry, guys, but our lives don’t revolve around pleasing you, having sex with you, or being eye candy for you.
It’s the fault of the society we live in, for teaching men that they have rights over a woman’s sexuality and self-expression. A society where street harassment is a daily battle. Where women can be seen almost naked in billboards, yet breastfeeding is discouraged. Where a young girl can simultaneously be told by the media “Be sexy" and at the same time "If you’re too sexy, you’ll get raped.”
Society. It’s disgusting. And I’m not going to go along with it. You don’t own my body. I’m the only one who can decide whether to love my body in all it’s “flat-chested” glory.
If you’re lucky enough to have warm weather in March, this one’s for you :)
