Able to scrutinize judge comment and criticize them in a. Way that doesn't really happen to men why don't you think, that. Is Oh is it Say. The, word patriarchy News coming coming That's always the beginning of any kind of Capitalism The whole body. Thing it's just another way of trying to both silence and control, women you. Know so it's, a it's a thing that makes us care so much about this thing and spend so much money on trying to modify our bodies look a certain way which is practically unobtainable so we don't have money to I don't know it's going. To sound, so basic but like. Static company all the time to get politics it's become dangerous because, now we. Know how we're, going to be so scrutinized if we are in the public eye at all so this basically created this world where it's just easier to be a man and that works. Quite well for them seats status Definitely it's the idea that women are told up bodies heads be, consumed rather than bodies to lived in and so it means, that we view. Ourselves through the lens of men, and that's particularly straight man but I find that it's. Often women policing other women criticizing other women it's not always just meant of course and the reason why is because you know. Women are under a system that forces us to judge each have then it, means that we continue to repeat that. Because it's And not. Policing includes calling a woman out for being fat rather than actually just allowing her, to exist on her own terms because you don't see that same criticism. When a woman is seen smoking and that's unfair because. Everybody is unhealthy and the runway some people aren't unhealthy relationships some people have unhealthy relationship with food regardless of the, level of half your relationship, is with your body it's not anybody's business to guilt trip. You about that ought to Russia into the process of repairing that relationship if you call yourself a fat activists and Jerry use the hashtag saggy boobs matter but I feel uneasy using the would fat and. Psyche to describe anyone just feels quite negative that you both embrace the term why is now the. Reason why you feel uneasy about using those times because as much as. Both of those words fat and psyche. Our objectives those objectives have been given a, different meaning which is negative so the word fat is frowned upon, because we're taught that to be fat means that you essentially A bad person and that is shown in how we treat fat. People and so people have a fear of being fat. Because it's associated with being about passing now the word sake is seen as negative because it's associated with aging and, women aren't allowed to age, and the process of aging is something that women are scorned. For whilst men are praised for and we see that in how are footsie with a silver FOX He's. Daddy you rarely ever see a woman. Being congratulated for aging if she, is being congratulated for aging is. That she looks like she's quote unquote aging backwards.
