The Beauty in Being a Woman

As a teenager I would constantly say that being a woman sucked. I was always complaining about having a period, that men could just roll out of bed and look fine whereas we have to get ready, we’re expected to be practically hairless on our body and be super thin in order to fit inContinue reading “The Beauty in Being a Woman”
