One lump at a time.
It's always a good thing to love your body.
Especially when the media perpetuates unhealthy standards of beauty.
You should be able to wear whatever you want, whenever you want, and feel nothing short of fantastic.
And you know what? It's okay to be vain and not apologize for it.
(But if you don't care about your appearance, that's totally cool too.)
You are allowed to openly love food.
And you never have to justify what you eat to anyone.
You can be independent and live your life completely on your own terms.
As long as you're not knocking down other women along the way.
Consent is mandatory. Always.
And you should never feel pressured to date anyone you don't want to.
You also should never feel scared to express yourself, no matter what.
And you're not being a "bitch" just for standing up for yourself.
No one should judge you negatively for your sex life.
Or your sexual orientation.
Just as no one should make you feel bad for wanting kids or marriage (no matter how young.)
It's okay to be really angry sometimes.
As it is okay to cry.
No one is a "perfect" feminist,, nor is there such thing as a "good" or "bad" feminist.
And so long as you believe in the equality of women, you are 100% a feminist.
