It takes a great deal of hurt to write something.And anger and disappointment.(personal case) So here it goes again. ..
I’m a nineteen year old girl. Educated and perfectly aware of the world around me. I’m the kind of girl who can differentiate between good and evil. I know what I’m comfortable with or whom I’m comfortable with. I know.Trust me I know. So if I’m wearing clothes that show my legs then I’m not revealing anything.I’ll tell you why. Because my legs exist from the time I was born. And my legs will stay with me till I’m dead. And if my dress shows my cleavage then it’s also not revealing.It has been there.Everybody has it.Even a man.People will not stare at the cleavage of a man because it’s not appealing,it will not give them a sensual pleasure and it will not be ‘a treat to the eyes’ as it is often put. I just wanna ask one question to everyone reading this…should I just cut off my body parts because I can’t prevent stares? I definitely can’t change my style of clothing.I can’t and I’ll not. So what’s the option that is left?
Chop off body parts that look ‘appealing’…
I wouldn’t do that either. I’m gonna stick to what I’m comfortable wearing.
I have come across aunts who often remind me to cover up my body parts. They actually do. My clothes are not obscene.They are not supposed to excite anyone because I don’t wear clothes to excite anyone.I wear clothes because I like wearing them. And if I didn’t like then I wouldn’t be wearing them at all.
I know where this is all coming from.Anger.I’m very angry at the moment,yes.I don’t see why I shouldn’t be angry. Tell me, if as a man you had to face such restrictions,would you tolerate? If yes…if yes, I’m ready to accept what I’m being asked to do. I’ll happily accept all the stereotypes and taboos and atrocities.
I know many will not agree with my point of view.Many have told me about how women should be docile and submissive and adaptable.I don’t see why? Why can’t we all possess the kind of characters we wish to have? Why can’t each of us choose our own emotions and feelings? Why women are thrust with character certificates? Why can’t your daughter or sister or wife or mother wear what she wants? Why? Tell me folks, Why?
If we can’t admire her body, then let’s not vulgarise it.
