A few weeks ago the internet went crazy over the words of Ayesha Curry; wife of NBA star Steph Curry.
Even though in the social media world this topic is old I still had some thoughts I wanted to share. Now me being a woman who likes to carry myself with respect and dignity I found no issue with her words. But for some reason this beautiful young married mother of two was judge for expressing her opinion. I have pseveral issues with the negative attention her comments received.
First I am aware that we live in a day and age where showing your body gets more likes then inspirational quotes. Where careers are made by sleeping with the hottest celebrities and breaking the internet with nudes photos is an accomplishment that makes the 6’o clock news. But have we completely lost our sense of morals where now we belittle those who want to remained clothed and doing things in a way their children could mirror. Its extremely disheartening to see that my children will grow up in a world that will make them feel weird for wanting to be lady-like or a gentleman. Well I refuse to lose hope that there are people still out there that are bold enough and strong enough to stand up for what they believe is right.
Ayesha's opinion is much like means in this respect. I feel compelled to let our youth and young women know that its ok to be a "good girl" or respectable woman. Even though what is being shown on TV, social media, movies or at school is saying the opposite. There are many women and men that want to live a life they can be proud of. Everyone is not "doing it"! It may be hard to do the right thing but its not wrong.
