I do realize that we're a little slow getting to this story, I do think that it's very worthy of our attention, it's a subject that we've spoken about before.
The comment that was made was regarding a well known model, when she dared to comment on a breaking news event, what followed suit was an onslaught of derogatory comments regarding the fact that she was a model "how dare she speak, because that played into the dumb model stereotype!?" "How dare she weigh in on what was going on in the world, or her country, she clearly doesn't know what's going on, suggesting that she hadn't educated herself on the situation!?" After all she is only known for her "lovely bottom and her pictures of food that she makes, posting them on Instagram." Telling a woman "to stay in the kitchen, doing what she's good at " is everything that women have been fighting against since we've been allowed to vote, drive and own land. (Not verbatim)
I did see the tweets that were tweeted by the model, I wasn't offended...I was offended by the attack on her though. If us women can't get along amongst ourselves, how are we supposed to expect anyone else to give us respect, and not treat us as sexual objects? Everything that these women eluded to was about her looks, apparently her opinion would've only been valid if she were helping you pick out your next swimsuit. When we take out our own every chance that we get, how are we supposed to be taken seriously? We can't ever be a united front, if we constantly divide and conquer ourselves.
This isn't the first time that this organization has made disparaging comments about women, last week it was about "young beautiful healthy women running around, how they should just go back to Tinder and Match.com, not worrying themselves over what's going on in her country."
Comments like these from other women, set women back years!
In schools we have a 0% tolerance for bullying, how are we supposed to be setting an example, for kids when a mainstream tv allows its hosts to speak so negatively towards women? Like it's a crime to be beautiful, have a great butt, be young and make a exuberant amount of money, because of it.
If a man had made all those comments, the internet/media would've exploded about the male chauvinistic, misogynistic, bigoted man child, that had dared to make such comments! Yet, it's gone very unnoticed under the radar almost. I heard the story via one of the internet shows that I watch, they were as outraged as I was by such comments. The fact that women still speak this way about each other is crazy to me.
I've heard more about the woman that walked for 10 hours, claiming that she had been sexually harassed by men that offered her a "good morning, have a nice day, hey beautiful or damn." Why are we so quick to jump on men, when I believe that women have committed the bigger offence here?!"
Women need to stop stabbing each other in the back every chance that they get!
Every single woman has something about her that makes her beautiful. Nobody steals your shine or your beauty, just because they happen to be beautiful in other ways from you. Beauty from the inside, is always more stunning, and exponentially more potent, than outward beauty. The woman that they chose to attack, happens to exude beauty from every pore, she is also one of those women that is just as stunning on the inside. She is loved/adored by many for her outspoken honesty, sense of humour, quirkiness, kindness and damn they were right, the woman can cook!
As a woman when you choose to attack another woman in this way, it shows your lack of security in yourself and as a woman. The comments that were made, reflect more about the people saying them, than the actual woman that they berated and tried to take down.
