As a gender, we need to give each other the strength to take a stand and demand the respect that any human deserves. We need to applaud woman who have the courage to post makeup free and truly candid shots where their thighs might be squished or their face might be on their 'bad side'. We need to focus our comments more on how amazing their personality is or how awesome it is that they are helping out at home while their mom is recovering or how cool it is that they choose not to drink because it's healthy.
I almost didn't post a 'me too' status because I thought "I haven't actually been brutally raped...I've never experienced violent sexual harassment...I've never felt like I was in imminent danger of sexual violation." But then I stopped myself.
