We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, “You can have ambition But not too much. You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.” Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of Joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors- not for jobs or for accomplishments which I think can be a good thing- but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings In the way that boys are. Feminist: a person who believes in the social political, and economic equality of the sexes.
"I try never to compare myself to other people, I just think ‘this is who I am’. You are happier when you think that way." – Jesy Nelson
I think we all should reblog this because we are fiercely proud of the 1st X Factor girlband to be Vevo Certified! Stop hating and see by yourself, Little Mix have talent! Congrats! #LittleMixIsVC
❝I thought i was just a normal singer. I did a few shows at school, but was always in the back. I never had the confidence to do it well. Now with these girls, everything is working.❞
Friendship is when you love someone with every ounce of your being and genuinely want them to be happy. Friendship is when you love someone so much you want to hold them and never let go, someone you want to rest your head on and cry, and you would let them cry on you too.
