    .. If it were a Men's Day, it would be considered hateful. We have such a double standard in our society. Who built the bridges, skyscrapers, the car, airplanes, and all the great inventions used today? Up until the mid 20th century, who was always sent off to die in war? They...

    I Hate It....

    I hate how society expects people to be perfect. I hate what us women are all aspired to be, how we have to be married/have kids/a career, basically to have it all and if we don't succeed in this then it is almost like we are looked down upon or seen as less of a woman. I hate it...

    I feel like society thinks they are different

    and good for liking "thicker" girls and being supportive but in actuality they are just skinny shaming and saying they like girls with boobs and *** which is typical. It is rare for people to find actual obese people attractive.

    What is 'ugly'? Not having designer clothing?

    Not having your boobs or *** hanging out of your clothing? Maybe not being able to see your ribs or feel your bones in your thighs? Having acne? Not wearing make up? Having braces? Or glasses? Is that what ugly is? Maybe it's just another word 'ugly' is society.

    Yes, it's human nature,

    but it doesn't have to be like that in today's world. Exclusion is a natural behaviour, those who are weaker have less to contribute, but today survival of the fittest doesn't have to be the thing we go by.
