Body Rage

An odd thing happened to me this morning:

I was sat at my desk, getting set up this morning, and a good friend of mine walked past, stopped, came back, and said "You're necklace is rather tight there". 

Now, this friend has been supportive of me through my condition, my work woes and my blog, so this comment came as a big surprise. 

I didn't know what to say! 

I responded with "No, it isn't". Thinking that would be the end of it. 

Nope, he continued. Even the look of surprise on my face wasn't enough for him to stop.

"It is. It's sitting at your Adam's Apple". 

And he walked away. 

I'm been quietly raging all day.

What right does ANYONE have to pass judgement on someone else? Our bodies are our own, what we wear on them, or put in them, are our OWN business. 

On a day when 3 fabulous ladies are looking amazing in the Times2 Supplement (full front page picture) I was on a high. Now though, I'm reminded that the playing field is in no way even. But these baby steps we're taking are going to slowly trample this field level in time. 

Much love my lovelies,

  1. I can imagine why you're annoyed, what a comment?! Wear your necklace however you want, it has NO effect on anyone else!

  2. What's wrong with these people?! Why do they feel the need to pass judgment on others do they think they are high and mighty and what they say goes! Honestly what a idiot where you wear your necklace is your choice and if it's tight or loose you don't need to be told its your neck you can feel and see! I love the necklace btw xx

  3. That was rather insensitive :/ boys don't always realise what they say can really upset a girl because they don't think like us
    Personally I think it's in a fine place and if it wasn't uncomfortable then of course it wasn't too tight.
    I seriously know the feeling when someone unintentionally but insensitively picks up on your insecurities and feels the need to point them out its horrible but try to ignore they and wear/Di what you like
    Btw sorry for spamming your blog lol I'm bored at work and it's entertaining me :) xx
