I saw our culture through entirely different eyes! It really woke me up to just how much women are valued for our looks over everything else. People would take one glance at me & I could see the look of dismissal cross their face. I've lost the weight, but now I'm 55 & get to see how our society views older women! ~lol.
It's liberating when you recognize it, because it no longer has power over you. Oh sure, it's more frustrating - like taking the red pill, but I wish more women could see that recognition of how pervasive it has all become is the first step.
On that note, Netflix has had Miss Representation on "long wait" for a very long time now. I suspect someone didn't return it or it was damaged & they are not going to replace it.
