Woah, Man

Social Media
Makes it so easy to take away
To take away from ourselves
To believe in these brainless depictions of what society is supposed to be

I don’t want to see another “women these days” meme
Putting down the way that A sins differently than B
We can’t move forward as woman & damn sure not as a society if we continue to classify ourselves as hoes vs “wifey types”
and make assumptions based on the APPEARANCE we CHOOSE to uphold

We all possess a superpower that is being woman
We all sin
We all love
We all win
We all lose

Let’s lift each other up
You see her struggling?
lend that woman a hand
You see her succeeding?
give that woman a hand

Social media so wrongfully depicts what woman is, was and should be
Don’t get me wrong, we see the rare circulation of a woman that’s done well
& that’s who we are inspired by, but why so rarely?
Why not all of us? Why not more often?

  1. I love everything about this. The word choice is specifically powerful. You touch on an important aspect of feminism that a lot of us struggle with; how do we acknowledge and change gender stereotypes and norms that are solidified under a system of patriarchy? Its difficult but totally doable.

    You address this really well when you say, “We can’t move forward as woman & damn sure not as a society if we continue to classify ourselves as hoes vs “wifey types”and make assumptions based on the APPEARANCE we CHOOSE to uphold.” <– yessss!

    Brilliant. Our lives are influenced by gender roles that are much too rigid for accurately depicting what a healthy relationship should look like, and that causes people to have unrealistic or misogynistic views of how women should or should not act in society. If we continue to put down one group of females as "hoes" in order to support "wifey types" as the preferred alternative, then its just progressing male dominance of the individual female's identity. "Submissive" and "supportive" become more important to many people than being "independent" or "passionate." And thats based off of an appearance we CHOOSE to uphold due to the expectations that society has for women filling a particular role or idealized version of femininity.

    This blog entry really made me think and I appreciate your posts. Youre very talented. Cheers!
