Marriage and other old-fashioned things

I just read this article on xojane in which the article’s author, Kristin, did The Rules for three months to see how it would affect her dating life. In a nutshell, she was not into it.

As a pro-Rules girl, I read all her reasons for why The Rules are old-fashioned and made her feel less self-respect for herself (instead of more, as The Rules promise), and I believe her negative take on it comes from the common misconceptions that most anti-Rules girls get from the 90s dating book. Or put more bluntly, I feel like she read it wrong and was therefore Doin’ It Wrong (sorry).

Confusing messages

You probably know how it is when something hits you (physically or mentally) and you just can’t keep silent! It can be a car ( 😀 ) or other persons false lies, both make your senses grow- and words just want to pop out like popcorn in 232 °C hot oil! So it happened with me – this morning after watching Swedish morning news…

I will start with good things to make this post a bit more positive! 😀 I truly adore the world’s and especially Swedish women’s strength to fight for their rights- Feminism, you know!

And I would always raise my hands for women’s rights. I will always be against misogyny or patriarchy, because I need to be honest- I know how it feels to be evaluated only by my looks and being hushed up because… I am a woman, but… I am standing for genuine history- and after all we get here- my today’s post – Confusing messages!
