There are some things no woman should be shamed for, even though society can be incredibly judgmental and will try to shame her anyway. If you've ever been criticized for the way that you dress or the job that you have, you shouldn't let the comments bother you. As hurtful as they are, they're valueless and should be ignored. Here are some of the things no woman should be shamed for:
1. Her Job
If you want to be a stay at home parent with ten kids, it's fine. If you want to be a business woman who works in her office all week, it's fine. The career path that you decide to take is one of the things no woman should be shamed for. You're in charge of your own life, so you should do whatever you need to do to be happy or financially secure. How you earn money is really no one else's business.
3. Her Outfits
Some women like to show off their skin by wearing crop tops and miniskirts. Other women like to wear sweatpants and hoodies. The clothing that a woman wears has no correlation to her value or to her promiscuity. Dress how you like to dress, and don't let nasty comments make you change.
3. Her Sexuality
It doesn't matter whether you're straight, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender or anything else. Your sexuality isn't important, because we're all human. If anyone ever tries to shame you for your sexuality, ignore them. Surround yourself with decent people who actually accept you.
4. Her Weight
A scale doesn't determine a person's worth. All it does is tell them a number that helps them pick out clothes. If someone shames you for being too skinny or too heavy, cut them out of your life. Your weight is your own business, so deciding whether you want to lose or gain some pounds it is all up to you.
5. Her Hobbies
If a woman loves ballet and the color pink, she shouldn't be made fun of for being girly. If a woman likes baseball and the color blue, she shouldn't be made fun of for being a tomboy. You're allowed to enjoy any hobby, regardless of your gender. Don't let the fact that you're a woman stop you from doing something that you love.
6. Her Number
A lot of people judge women by the number of men that they've been with. Of course, that's a ridiculous thing to care about. If you're dating someone, then yes, your number is somewhat important. But if you're not involved with them sexually or romantically, why should they care about what you've been up to in your free time?
7. Her Gender
Simply being born a woman is something that we are occasionally shamed for. That's why the sayings "you hit like a girl" and "man up" should be banned from your vocabulary. Being a woman is an amazing thing, not something to be ashamed of.
You can't change the way that people treat you, but you can change the way you view yourself. If anyone shames you for something they shouldn't, don't let it bother you. If you do, then you're giving them power that they don't deserve. Have you ever been made fun of for one of the things on this list?
