Did you guys read this article about the Pakistani social media star who was killed by her own brother? We women are always cornered into what society wants, what our family wants, mostly what others think we should be. We are and WILL always be judged for what we wear, what we say, what career paths we choose, who we marry, how we raise our kids, how we do our hair, etc. FOR EVERYTHING WE DO. It’s not just men who judge us, we as women heavily judge other women. As a feminist, I think that women should have the CHOICE to be whoever they want, there is no “right” way to be a woman. We may not agree with someone else’s decisions, but if we want to be free women, we need to stop judging others for their choices. Instead taking time to understand why those decisions were made. I am trying to be less judgmental to those who have different values than I do, especially those women who have different political views than me.
I want this to be a safe space for everyone, this place is a place where we can be ourselves, say what is on our minds without judgment. So, readers and writers, please feel FREE to be you!
Rest In Peace Qandeel Baloch. Thank you for being yourself no matter the amount of hate and negativity you got.
