Repost from International Women’s Day 2016.
On International Women’s Day whilst retweeting uplifting quotes of empowerment about the sheer delights of being female, up popped a tweet accusing team Yoga Leggs of being “Fatphobic Trash”!!! (I don’t think there was a hashtag). (OUCH!) It was International Women’s Day! Only seconds earlier I had liked and shared some soppiness urging us not to be MEAN GIRLS. I loved the sentiment. Sometimes as women, depending on things like hormones, lack of carbohydrates or where the moon is at, we can have a tendency to over think, over analyze and over criticize. It’s part of our genetic makeup as sensitive, curious, emotional souls to dig deep and have our say. (I’m generalizing and it is just my opinion, I am only qualified as a woman who comes from a large family of women, that has given birth to a woman, that knows a lot of women! please don’t shoot me, I know that we are not all the same!)
