Happy Monday dolls!! Am back to regular postings now...my girls are back at school now after what felt like a very loooong break, haha! I think they were starting to get under each other's feet, so some space will do them some good now. But, I really enjoyed having the break to do nothing but enjoy their sweet faces. Today is Share in Style & the theme is 'Masculine'...of course as you know, this is not a look I do very often. It would have been more me growing up as I hated dresses, pink...well pretty much anything that was deemed 'girly' except lipgloss! I was more a play in the dirt and climb trees kind of girl, which I still am really when I get the chance.
I'm really glad this was theme as when you think on it, in society it's deemed as pretty much ok to be masculine or seen as a boy, but to be a girl or be seen as 'girly or effeminate' is to be weak or not ok and I think it's wrong! Women go through just as much as Men and have just as much strength as them too. Recently in the news, a young girl, named Leelah ended her life for being transgendered and felt alone & judged in this world...this is heart-breaking! Me wearing these clothes dressed masculine is ok, but for this young heart to dress as a girl because inside & preferably outside, that is who she is, was wrong to everyone around her. Why are we still living in a world that 'beats' someone down for being who they are...where are these hidden rules that state we have to dress alike, be alike, think alike, look alike....well, to let you know....there aren't any!! I wish there had been someone to reach out to her & let her know she was loved as she was and that suicide wasn't needed - it leaves too many people behind left in tatters. (even though that isn't the person's intentions).
You can be whatever the hell you want to be, dress how you want to dress and never ever be ashamed for who you are!! You don't need to follow trends, your friends or anyone else to be great in this world....you need to be yourself to do that, we all have magic inside us and it's such a shame that we keep it hidden away when we're too busy following instead of carving our own way or in Leelah's case & many others in this world - not allowed to be who we are becauseof someone else's thinking! Whether it's gender, race, or whatever else, let's make no room for these prejudices! So, I'd like to if I may...dedicate this post to Leelah & every other doll-heart in the world being oppressed and ridiculed for who they are! Leelah may not be with us any longer, but it doesn't mean her voice & many others' voices can't still be heard & matter! I hope you have a gorgeous start to the week my darlings!
