Girls, Wear Nike Shorts And Leggings Whenever You Want To

Ladies, Nike Shorts And Leggings Are For Whenever The Heck You Want To Wear Them

Policing women for what they wear is sooooo 1800s.


In response to this glowing article where the author went on a tangent on why women should wear something to appease her approving eyes, I've decided to give my own take.

Rachel, the year is 2019. We are not living in the 1950s, the 1910s, or the 1800s. Women shouldn't have to change their own personal style for anyone's approval, especially from a fellow woman. If a girl feels like wearing sweatpants and a T-shirt every day, who are you to stop her? The article just feels very "pick-me" and it's not a cute behavior for any woman to have. And just because you went to a private school and were raised with a different upbringing, it doesn't give you the right to try and dictate what others do with their lives.

Ladies, if you feel like wearing a shirt and pants, do that. If you feel like wearing a dress, do that. If you feel like wearing leggings and a T-shirt, do that too because guess what, you're an adult and you can wear whatever you want! Hurray!

Women get criticized every single day for wearing something, for not wearing something, for being a virgin, for having sex, for being queer, for going to the club, for staying home and studying, and the list goes on and on and on. We catch criticism from every corner for every single thing we do. The best thing we can do is ignore the haters and keep living our best lives.

Rachel, with all due respect, it's time for you to grow up, start minding your business and moving on, and get rid of that internalized misogyny because it doesn't look good on you. At the end of the day, women need to support other women, and it's not too late for you to start.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
