We live in a society where women are objectified based on societal standards that don't seem to even be realistic. We have been reduced to being desirable based on how we look outwardly. We tear women down. On a daily basis.
Women, especially, are going broke, losing their minds, compromising their integrity, jumping into loveless relationships, all for the sake of being wanted. It is exhausting trying to be the right weight, height, class, color, natural, synthetic, made up, dressed up..you name it.
Then, along comes women like Curry who, with real tears in her eyes and heaviness in on her heart, are publicly open and honest about how they feel about all the madness. And what happens? She's crucified! The same men who objectify them (building what they envision as the "perfect woman") tear them to shreds and make them feel horribly worse about themselves than they did before. And the comments from some women! Girrrlll.....Is this a paradox or what!
Should Curry have not shared her feelings? You know, the very thing experts say you need to release or lose your mind? Should she have not commented publicly? And live up the the fake standard that society say celebs are? What are women supposed to do when they feel vulnerable? Less desirable, unfulfilled? Curry is 32 with three kids, a strong value system and a husband who gets more attention from other women on a daily basis than she could ever give, and we, as a society, are telling her that she has no right to want to feel attractive by no other male species if it is not her husband. Does this means he's not making her feel attractive? How come we haven't heard from her husband?
Her "need" doesn't come from a lack of talent, money, fame or material possessions. It comes from human nature and needing to feel needed. Period.
If nothing else, from this moment, I have learned that you can't win for losing.
