have to love yourself more ”
You can't tell me what ladylike is because we don't live in the '50s any more. I am looking for equality... I am 15 years old. You do not get to sexualize me like that, you do not get to tell me that my body is sacred, because it isn't...
Half the population are females. We’re not sacred, we aren’t a new discovery, people know I have legs, I have knees and thighs... I do not want girls growing up in a society where they believe their body, and they, have to be a certain way because they can be however they want to be... They can be however makes them comfortable and confident...
Girls don’t do things for boys or do things to impress boys. I don’t care about boys, I care about myself... You don’t go up into someone’s personal space and look them up and down because of how short their skirts or shorts are.”
What you mean is ‘please conform to my personal, rigid beliefs of what I deem acceptable for a woman because it’s up to me to decide who deserves to be treated like a human being or not based entirely on meaningless socialized and sexist values.’”
