Do you have a role model?
Your parents, Bill gates, the “business woman of the year”?
If you ask teenage girls, there is a high chance they’d refer to an artist.
They make funky music, hair is always on fleek and they wear the perfect clothes to show their “perfect” body.
Recently I involved myself in an Instagram argument with a young girl about a picture of a certain girl band.
The conversation went something like this :
SHE: The fact that they are showing off their body means they are GROWN UP
Me: That’s not the exactly the definition of an adult 😉
But you’re probably too young to know.
SHE: I am 13 and I KNOW A LOT MORE THAN YOU THINK !!
Statements like these scare me than a potential World War 3.
It also brought me back to one of the reasons why bullying in high school started.
One day one of my pervert classmates (female!!!!!!!) asked me if I knew what “Horny” means.
My face turning red gave clearly away that i really didn’t.
And how on earth could I know?
This is nothing something I’d discuss with my conservative parents.
There was no proper internet at that time, certainly not smart phones.
I wonder how they even found out.
There is nothing wrong with feeling confident physically and sexually above a certain age. On the contrary, you should.
But do keep it classy, people!
Classy, sophisticated and safe.
Certainly don’t throw in phrases like “I’m 13 and I know a lot more than you think” .
That’s not something to be proud of.
Shame on you girl.
Shame on your parents.
Shame on that (and many other) artist for provoking such behavior.
And sometimes just, Shame on the entire freaking world.
