"What a Slut"
Whore, skank, slut, hoe, hussy – Unfortunately I’m not surprised when I see or hear men shouting these demeaning terms, but it really saddens me to see fellow females doing it. Why does somebody elses sex life matter to you so much? Why must you judge women that choose to show more skin than you find “acceptable”? What offends you about a woman’s body?, it’s nothing you haven’t seen before.
Would you call your daughter one of these derogatory denominations if you saw her wearing a skirt that was too short or a shirt revealing too much cleavage? Would you brand an “A” on her forehead if you discovered she had slept with more people than you found “appropriate”?
Stop being foolish girls that belittle and degrade each other and start acting like women and empower one another. Rise above shaming your sisters, a Queen knows better than that.
What do you see?
I stare into the mirror and ask,
“What are you doing viewing yourself with such resentment in those eyes”
“Why are you single-handedly tearing yourself apart?”
“Do you realize that you are mutilating yourself with your own mind?”
“Stop thinking that your body is a form of distortion, ridiculing your appearance with every hostile glance you give.”
“How can you listen to these contorted, condemning thoughts?”
“Free yourself of these deceiving beliefs attempting to worm their way into your head before they slither down your throat and constrict your heart.”
“Fight their misleading words that make you feel like you’re not good enough.”
“Don’t let them delude the way you perceive yourself, trying to trick you into believing that you aren’t beautiful and exquisite.”
“Expel the paralytic parasites attacking your self-esteem, silencing your tongue with doubt, causing hesitation, holding you back from expressing yourself.”
“Free your mentality of these maiming fallacies, absolve yourself of the poisonous illusions seeking to sabotage you, and rise above any crippling animosity toward yourself”
“You are magnificent, you are powerful, and you can overcome this malicious mindset.”
