Caitlyn, we adore you! We're so proud to share even the tiniest bit of internet space with a woman who's as bold, daring, and courageous as you. Welcome to the world of women, my dear, and now that you're here, we at AWS have some advice for you.
1. It's Okay to Be You
Well, duh - this is a lesson you've obviously already learned! But what I mean, specifically, is that sometimes, it's okay to just be you, make-up free, hair in a messy bun, comfy clothes and all. Sure, you don't ever have to do it, but if you want to, it's totes okay.
2. We're All Your Sisters
There are plenty of haters out there (see below) - but we can't be listed among them. One of the great things about being a woman is that you automatically belong to a sisterhood... that creepy guy at the bar won't leave you alone? We've got your back.
3. Embrace the Chick Flick
There are so many good ones! Start at the beginning (Terms of Endearment or All About Eve) and work your way up.
4. The Bra Trick
If you haven't already experienced the joy of removing your bra without taking your shirt off, then flinging it across the room, learn it. Now. It's awesome!
5. Eventually, Heels Will Kill You
OMG, they're the worst! Sure, they look amazing, but after a decade or so, you'll want to wear flats sometimes. Do it!
6. Ignore the Haters
Even if you'd started life in the body you have now, you'd have been the object of haters telling you your worth was all about your looks, but careful! Can't be too sexy! Or thin! Or fat! Or any number of other things the patriarchy and society will use to scrutinize you. Ignore them! They know nothing.
