i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
The idea of “daddy issues” is ultimately incredibly misogynistic, blaming and shaming women for having been abused or neglected as little girls by adult men and making it HER fault, HER problem. Even if I was a stripper with an abusive father, who the fuck’s business is it? Does it invalidate my life and experiences and choices? Is it more relevant than a lawyer with an abusive father? Or a war veteran? Why do you blame and invalidate women for being hurt by men AS CHILDREN? It’s wrong. I urge people to purge the phrase “daddy issues” from your personal vocabulary for life.
