A friend of mine is trying to recruit me into the feminism cult, and I’m put off by her till the point where every time she speaks, I want to shove her mouth with a curry puff.
I come from a single parent family. I never knew my dad. My mom used to tell me how men were unreliable and that I had only myself to rely on. I wished I knew sooner that men were unreliable because my mom’s eye got stamp.
I got every scholarship you could think of and never dated till I’m 23 because of my mom’s brainwashing. I even started work immediately after my final exam, I did not attend my NUS graduation either. I sincerely believed that achieving financial freedom and being independent is all there is. I became one of the youngest manager at 25. One could say at this point, I’m a perfect version of what feminism aspire all women to be, except I wasn’t indoctrinated by feminism but by my mom. Yet my life was empty, coming back to an empty bed, living with a gaslighting mom.
I began swiping on Tinder. It wasn’t hard to get matches, but the problem is, things never gone anywhere because my bmi was 25, it has been like that since primary school. I spent a year exercising and starving myself, only to have stubborn fat remain on my belly and thigh. 5 years ago when i was 26, I made the decision to do lipo-grafting against my mom wishes. I did lipo-grafting twice in Korea to have a D cup and achieved the chiobu Status. My new found confidence with a capital T helped me secure the love of my life.
At 28, I changed to a 5k job, got married after just dating my husband for 15months and has been living a really fulfilling life.
Girls please don’t believe in the whole feminisms ideology that you don’t need a man in your life, you absolutely need a partner. A career is not all you need, and higher paying jobs comes with an abundance of stress. Classic beauty standard is absolutely important.
To my friend if you’re reading this, stop texting me. Get slim and go do plastic if need be, find love and stop tormenting yourself with feminism. Perhaps then we can still be friends.
