The Body Series

This series hopes to explore issues that women face when it comes insecurities about their bodies and societal pressures. (I was going to write just my experience then I realized that that’s just one body type) I hope this style makes sense to y’all.

Boobs

Alien, allow me to shock you some more. I come from a community in Kenya that never used to cover their boobs in their traditional wear and now even a small glimpse of the tit is seen a seduction attempt by a woman. Alien, this body part has been sexualized so much that women are shamed for using boobs for their purpose, breastfeeding. There is also this crazy expectation that they are a certain shape, size and should be upright and firm. There are inventions like push up bra, all meant to meet the standards.

Someone used the litmus test as me laughing and nothing shaking. There are thousands of memes out here trying to tell me that I am not worthy. When Lupita wore that plunging neckline to the red carpet, the booby army came out asking what she was trying to show; I saw myself in her. I have the most uncomfortable push up bra ready to wear with some necklines.

Girl with medium size boobs

I am always the girl who is almost perfect. I once I had a boyfriend who kept saying, “You just need two inches more.” like I didn’t already feel like that. Everytime I gain weight, too many comments are about my larger boobs. When I got pregnant, they talked about my larger boobs despite the waaaay large tummy was no existent.

Fuck Society Girl

Girl with big boobs

My boobs started growing when I was just nine and ever since all I have know is how to hide and be ashamed of my boobs. In primary school boys were always passing to close with their hands ready to “accidentally” brush up on me. Colored bras in high school were banned because my boobs were a temptation to them. When I first a low cut top, this man sitting in front stared at me with rapid movements below his pants. I knew what he was doing but I sat there scared and paralyzed until he left. I then ran home and took a long shower in tears. Now practice has taught me to look shapely at them until they stop even though it still kills me.

Screw Society Girl

Girl with boob implants

My favorite thing is looking at the mirror and I am proud of how beautiful my rack looks.Then comes in the trolls and preachers of natural beauty trying to steal my shine. They say all kinds things about my boobs yet want to dine. They make jokes about plastics like there’s no human here. My all time favorite is often the annoying questions about my ability to breastfeed.

Annoying Society Girl

Here are some tips that could help those girls fall in love with themselves in a cruel world like this.

  • Compliment your body part
  • Follow people with your body type on social media, it always helps to see them looking really good.
  • Fall in love with yourself so no one can tell you anything about your body
  • Taking good pictures of yourself so that you can look at on days you feel less helps a lot.
  • Remember you are sexy as hellk😛

    There is a tribe in Angola (my dad’s country) that doesn’t cover their boobs either. It’s something I can’t ever imagine myself doing though 😂 that’s how babies are made!

      I also wouldn’t do it but I sometimes think if boobs weren’t sexualized and if colonization didn’t happen we would still do it.🧡🧡🧡
