I am pleased with all the ‘flaws’ that I could not bear to take a look at after I was 14. So a lot of you needed to aggressively let me know the way disenchanted you had been by my ‘tiny tits’, or how I must be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested’.I’ve lived in my physique for a very long time. I am absolutely conscious of my breast measurement and am not frightened of it.
“What’s extra regarding is…. Why are you so frightened of breasts? Small? Giant? Left? Proper? Just one? Possibly none? What. Is. So. Terrifying. It makes me surprise what occurred to you to be so content material on being so loudly upset by the scale of my boobs and physique..?”

If being loudly abusive in direction of ladies publicly in 2022 is really easy for you, then the reply is that it’s you who does not know. Develop up. Respect individuals. Respect our bodies. Respect all ladies. Respect people. Life will get an entire lot simpler, I promise.
