The Land of the Captive…the Home of the Afraid

You seek to destroy.

Continuously breaking down bridges.
Building barriers, high fences, and walls.
Corruption masked by popular culture.
The media lies covering truth.

Quotes for Life 

“Where after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Test they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in, the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.

Challenging Feminism

Women have come so far. I reblogged this post because of the validity of some of the points the original blogger made. Truly valid.

I think we as women have made much progress, but there is still more to fight for because equality is essential in all areas of life for women and men. Keep marching, keep fighting for our rights; the rights below the surface. Yes, we can vote, work, drive cars, and own our own businesses, but the sly looks you get from men in power, the overlook, the shun, the disrespect, sexual harrassment…. yes, we still have to fight for that!

We must, as women continue to value human life. It is important to me to educate women to be the best versions of themselves because it is something I am always working on, and all women deserve to know that they truly are the core of life, and no matter the stereotypical discrimation, never back down, fight through a mans personal bull****!

The emotional and psychological struggles that cause women to doubt their potential, disgusts me, but it is embedded in our society. It’s the foundation. Every day, we must try to rebuild that foundation.

Lately, it’s been really weird to be a woman.

200-11

Not because of any fashion or makeup trends…although, I will say…I don’t quite understand the reemergence of the shoulder pad.

But because of all the recent hyper focus on…feminism.

The Women’s March, International Women’s Day, protests, walk outs, I mean, we get it already

But to be honest, I am confused by the whole matter.

Women are not marginalized in the United States of America. 

What are they fighting for? Why all the anger?

Now listen, I know that this post is probably going to garner a lot of backlash, but you know what, that’s okay. I would love to hear thoughts on all sides of this issue. Truly. Every person is entitled to their own viewpoints, and I respect those feelings, even if they differ from mine. And of course, there is always room for improvement in removing some lingering…

Welcome everyone!

Today I want to jump right in and talk about this new blog I came across. The author goes by the name of Pinkspen and the name of the blog is LADYHOOD. LADYHOOD advocates self-love, peace and equality for all women. The reason I love this blog so much is because if anyone knows me, I am one for all of us to unify and help one another instead of berate and bully each other. As Pinkspen introduces herself and gives the run down of what her intentions with her writing are, she also establishes that she wants to first and foremost be a mentor to women who would seek her advice.

“Talking to a stranger, someone who does not know you (a mentor), can reveal those inadequacies that those closest to you, cannot. I want to be that mentor for you!” Pinkspen said in her blog.

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

I love words because they allow me to express myself, when often times, I find myself to be speechless, as a speaker. As a writer, I can describe every ounce of me and that is why I love quotes. Quotations provide a short, detailed, descriptive, and insightful look into the mind of a speaker.

I was not necessarily nominated for this challenge, but I was inspired to participate! I visited a page of Jess Wade, who inspired me through her writing and as a mature blogger. I am new to this community of writers, poets, artists, photographers, etc. but, I have been writing since my first pencil hit a blank page.

I appreciate Jess for checking out my site, reading some of my posts, and encouraging me to participate in this challenge. Please check out her page…she is an inspiration! 

This first quote is something that I aim to live by everyday.

As women in this mans world, this can cause many inferior feelings about our worth. 

We are taught in the media, and even in our homes, that we are not as important as men, which causes, low self-esteem; a lack of self-love, self-respect, value, and overall inequality for us in society.

I hope this quote inspires someone to see themselves as more than what popular culture and social media tells them they should be!

The LADYHOOD Definition

 As defined by Merriam-Webster,

ladyhood

noun la·dy·hood \ˈlādēˌhu̇d\

Definition of ladyhood

  1. the state of being a lady :  quality or nature of a lady <the changing status of woman from ladyhood to the position of political citizen — Amy Loveman>

  2.  ladies <representative of the ladyhood of her day>

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ladyhood

It is my goal to become the founder and creator of the LADYHOOD journey brand.

I believe that LADYHOOD is not biological; just because you were born female, this does not make you a lady…

The definition of LADYHOOD is an opinion, but it is a lifestyle; a representation of what is considered being a true lady as opposed to womanhood or being female.

As women, we know the barriers we face in this world, because we are female… for transgender women and girls, that challenge is even greater.

Breaking down barriers, supporting one another, and accepting our differences is what LADYHOOD is all about

We realize that it is a constant goal that we seek to maintain.

We are individuals that are strong, liberal & conservative; confident, and leaders. We seek to empower all women to be the best version of themselves…

Being a lady is not about your hips, thighs, breasts, and booty. It is about your mind and creativity; your voice, standards, and the emotional burden that we carry as women in this world.

LADYHOOD is fighting against the stereotypical norms of womanhood in our society. We are determined to become more than just a woman (as stated by the great Aaliyah herself in the song “More Than a Woman”).

We can make money, advance in the work place, and be just as powerful as men without selling our bodies.

Join the journey to be the best version of yourself! 

You are woman! 

-Pinkspen
