What happened to the strong, independent women in this country? The ones who would offer a generous drop kick to a man’s “danger zone” if he decided to touch, grab or go where he was not first invited?
This is not political, although I have a very strong opinion there as well. My issue is with the media and how they (now) make women out to be these defenseless little fawns. Lost in the wilderness. Helpless.“Oh that big naughty man said dirty things about me…he made me an object.”
I raised my daughter to be strong, independent and loaded with self worth. Nobody. Celebrity, athlete, or pretty frat boy is gonna make her an object in any way. Thankfully, at almost 22 years old, she doesn’t need her Daddy, friends, the internet, Facebook, politicians (God forbid), or the ubiquitous TV Bubbleheads (who pollute the fragmented broadcast outlets) to tell her otherwise.
Maybe, just maybe, if the media didn’t pound their agendas and simultaneously canonize actors, sports personalities or anyone else who’s face gets plastered everywhere for their 10 seconds of fame…we might have a little less of this mindless noise and a bit more common sense.
It’s SELF-IMAGE 101. Women really can take care of themselves and demand respect, often without saying a word. (Even if they’re not a professional boxer.)
Round One begins with the parents.
Ring the bell.
