Don't get me wrong. I know it's meant as satire and I see how it is meant as satire. I understand how it is a joke, and I am not offended and don't think you were making light of something serious - I mean, I don't think this post minimizes the American experience of female body shaming. Quite the reverse, to be honest.
I grew up in a household where I was not allowed to wear spaghetti or tank tops, only shirts that fully covered my shoulders. The only fuzzy justification my mother ever gave for mandating this wardrobe was that if I wore a tank top, my bra straps would be visible, and this was positively verboten. I vividly remember the first day I wore a tank top in public. I was in college.
So that's just one example of the "cover up and don't discuss it" culture I was raised in.
It's funny. I noticed in the article they touch on "feminine hygiene products" - pads and tampons. It's a satire and it's still more progressive than home - my mom actively denied that they even existed when I hit puberty.
Just remember to never ask them and bury them deep down inside, and I’ll do my best to ignore whatever’s going on with you.
I suspect this article hits me a little closer to home than the average gal because of how I was raised. I know it's meant as satire and knowing that my reality was so similar is what disheartens me. That is why I can't share, because I know that there are places where this satire is reality and that is so wrong and so sad.
