Short, tall, thin, curvy, pear-shaped, apple-shaped, hourglass shaped, long hair, short hair, curly, straight, redhead, brunette, blonde. So many endless labels we put on each other and ourselves.
The original plan was to write about why women hate on other women. You know what I mean. You see a woman walk by and whether out loud or in your mind, you start talking about her.
“She shouldn’t wear something like that.”
“How much make-up does she need?”
“She sure is showing a lot of skin.”
“She just thinks she is HOT!”
“She really didn’t even try with her hair.”
We have all done it. Maybe it was when you were a teenager. Or maybe you still do it. You aren’t alone. It’s safe to say that a good majority of women have at least one time had catty comments about another woman. And the majority of those continue to do it on a frequent basis, if not daily.
Why? Do we hate our own gender?
As I said, I originally planned to write about why women hate on other women but after doing some research on the subject, it has evolved into a series, For the love of Women. In For the Love of Women series, I will discuss how we as women cut down each other, ourselves, and pass it on to our daughters and how to go about finding peace with our bodies and each other.
