It’s really sad to know that girls are growing up wanting only to be skinny and beautiful because as a child everyone always told them how pretty they were, and it’s what’s fucking everything up. Can we please raise our children to be more than attractive? Stop complimenting them all the time and instead encourage them to talk about books and films and ideas. Young girls shouldn’t have to grow up being insecure because they don’t look like the pretty girls and feel inferior and want to lose weight and change everything about their appearance. They should grow up wanting to change the world and learn as much as possible. We also make this quite obvious to men as well, the pretty women are the ones to go after, the ones you want to hook up with. Women are more than a piece of ass. It should be normal to have a conversation with a woman without expecting her to fuck you just for listening. It should be safe for her to walk down the street without getting taken advantage of. I only want the best for our children and for us.
Totally agree with most of this, except for the part about not complimenting your kids. Of course you should compliment them! If a girl looks pretty, tell her so, but also raise her to be more than that. Compliment her on a job well done at school or work, or on vast knowledge of random film facts. A compliment is an easy way to encourage people. Simple gestures, such as a compliment, can encourage someone to keep up the good work.
