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,
