Nigerian Blogger Makes Case for Saggy Bosoms......"women do not exist for the consumption of men"

 I stumbled on this article by SlumFlower and I must confess, I love,love it. It is bold and the TRUTH.👏👏 Read it below

First of all, women do not exist for the consumption of men. Biologically, our bod are built for babies. Babies don't care about how perky your bosoms are; they just wanna be fed. Men aren't and will never be in a position to tell women 'how to be a woman'. Impressing men isn't even a goal worth making. As long as you have a female reproductive organ, men (cis-het) will naturally be drawn to you anyway. Nature
doesn't recognise beauty standards. There is literally no wrong way to be a woman. There is literally no wrong way to have a bod as long as your bod is functioning well enough to keep you alive.

When I'm wearing an outfit without a bra, I often get stares from people so trapped in their own insecurities that the sight of someone else taking charge of their bod intimidates them. Majority of the time, people's problems with you are an extension of their problems with themselves. It's hard enough, trying to silence the voice in your head telling you that you will never be good enough so why make room for an external voice that will only amplify that self-hating voice?

Due to under-representation of saggy-looking bosoms in the media, we are all taught that there's only one way to be beautiful and that includes having super perky bosoms. But majority of these films, campaigns and music videos are directed by men (who a lot of the time, don't even know what they want anyway so why aspire to please an inconsistent person?). If I had seen women with saggy bosoms being glorified for their beauty, I wouldn't have developed a complex as a very young teenager. This is exactly why representation is important. The more you see someone who looks like you in positions of success, the more your image is normalised; the less of a spectacle your reflection is; the more comfortable you will be in your bod. It is that deep.
If you are having trouble accepting your bod, please look at mine and look at how socially unacceptable my bosoms are. But also look how bossy, snatched and GLOWY I look! I'm living my best life and my bosoms aren't going to stop me from meeting someone amazing. They're literally gland sacks. And they're actually pretty awesome. Shout out to my bosoms.
Saggy bosoms matter.
