What am I getting out of it this time?

Keywords: {0}

I am so inspired by this new step, this fresh start, taken in my mid-30s. Despite the late nights, white hairs and stress sleep, I am holding my own.

Or how many times have you been told that “people will see you like this, it’s inappropriate”? Or that “it’s only for me to see”? Or how many times have you been asked “who are you dressing up sexy for”? As if being attractive is a bad thing. As if being with someone implies that you can’t look hot in public.
I’m not actually a proud supporter of the #freethenipple “movement” (which is banned by instagram by the way). I’m not suggesting that topless pictures or “inappropriate”, in your words, are a breakthrough towards feminism.
