From the New York Times story that revealed movie producer Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual harassment and assault toward women emerged story after story from female celebrities who dealt with Weinstein's assaults. I only mention a few. A different actress or model come out each day to tell the world me too.

Ashley Judd:

The first sexual harassment case against Weinstein started with Ashley Judd who was asked by Weinstein to meet in his room where he asked if he could give her a massage or watch him shower. The incident occurred twenty years ago.

Ambra Battilana Gutierrez:

Another one of the women mentioned in the Times piece that started it all, Gutierrez accused Weinstein of groping her breast and placing his hand up her skirt.

Heather Kerr:

Heather Kerr recounts her sexual assault case from nearly thirty years ago in 1989 where Weinstein forced genital contact from her hand and told her that being good in bed is how to succeed in the entertainment industry. The assault was horrifying enough for her to quit acting all together.

Lupita Nyong’o:

Lupita tells her own detailed story of run-ins with Weinstein in a Times piece. She says Weinstein insisted on going to his bedroom where he asked to massage her, and after she offered to massage him as a way to buy time thinking of an escape plan, Weinstein took of his pants to which Lupita left for the door. Other recounts of her interactions with Harvey have left her on edge.

Lysette Anthony:

In an interview with the Sunday Times, British actress Lysette Anthony describes being assaulted in one instance and raped in another by Weinstein. The assault occurred in his rented London home during the late 1980s, and she was luckily able to flee the scene. On another night in 1982, Lysette was raped by Weinstein in her home and remembers "lying in the bath later and crying."

Angelina Jolie:

While not giving the specifics of her time with Weinstein, Jolie mentions that she experienced his unacceptable behavior and chose never to work with him again.

Cara Delevingne:

Model turned actress Cara Delevingne references multiple invasive conversations and experiences with Weinstein which include asking if she had slept with any women she was with in the media spotlight, asking her to kiss another woman in his hotel room, and trying to kiss her as she left his hotel room.

Gwyneth Paltrow:

Paltrow shares her encounter with Harvey in the Times. She was twenty two. He pulled his massage gimic again, pressing her to go to his suite. She was told to cover up the story when she told her then boyfriend Brad Pitt who told Weinstein.

And those are just a few of the currently over 50 female celebrities who have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein.

These unwritten rules separate the people that move to the South and were born and raised in the South. If you were born and raised in a small southern town, you either are a southern belle or hope you get to marry one. Their southern charm is hard to dislike and impossible to be taught.

1. Adults are to be answered with "Yes ma’am" and "Yes sir."

Whether it’s your parents, grandparents, or the person that checks you out at the grocery store, always say yes ma’am.

2. Always write a thank you note.

For any and everything. No gesture is too small.

3. Expect a gentleman to hold the door open and pull out your chair.

Chivalry is not dead; you just need to find the right guy.

4. All tea is sweet.

Below the Mason-Dixon Line, tea is made no other way.

5. Don’t be afraid to cook with butter.

I’ve never met a good cook that didn’t giggle a little.

6. “Coke” refers to all sodas.

Here in the south, this means all types of sodas.

7. Pearls go with anything — literally anything

And every southern belle is bound to have at least one good set.

8. "If it’s not moving, monogram it."

9. Pastels are always in fashion.

And they look good on almost everyone.

10. And so is Lilly Pulitzer.

11. Curls, curls and more curls.

The bigger the hair, the closer to Jesus.

12. If you are wearing sandals, your toenails should be done.

13. Never ever ever wear white shoes, pants, dresses, or purses after Labor Day or before Easter.

Brides are the only exception. Yes we actually do follow this rule.

14. Never leave the house without lipstick.

A little mascara and lipstick can work miracles.

15. Always wear white when you walk down the aisle.

Weddings are taken very seriously here in the South, and they should be nothing but traditional.

16. Southern weddings should always be big.

The more bridesmaids the better.

17. Saturdays in the fall are reserved for college football.

Whether you spend it tailgating in that college town or watching the big game from your living room. You can guarantee that all southerner’s eyes will be glued to the game.

18. Sunday is for Jesus and resting.

19. Learn how to take compliments curiously.

20. Have class, always.

It's 2019, And I Can Confirm One Size Does Not Fit All, At All

I'll take feeling good over meeting your standards. Thank you.

We live in a society where being yourself and expressing who you truly are is something that is becoming more and more accepted and is actually trendy. Left and right, people are coming forward and declaring who they are and want to be in life and there is a crowd of people there to cheer them on.

There is also always that small percent sitting in the corner, ready to throw derogatory comments and taint the self-love, respect, and acceptance that's flowing.

Every single time this happens, the internet breaks and feuds form in the comment sections. How many times does this fight have to be had before people just mind their own business? How someone looks is frankly none of your concern. Whether you think the person is too fat, too skinny, too girly, too rough, too whatever, it's none of your business.

I'm a firm believer that one should focus on their own life instead of living to tear others down. You should be more concerned with feeling good in your own body than wasting your energy trying to make people ashamed of theirs. It's not your place to comment on someone's appearance.

We should work on building up confidence and feeling good in our skin. Exercising, working on your mental health, and surrounding yourself with good energy will improve your life exponentially. DO NOT do this to achieve an aesthetic or try to look like an Instagram model. Only do it to feel good about yourself internally. What you look like on the outside should only matter to you.

I would be lying if I said I didn't fall victim to countless beautiful women who post their swimsuit photos looking like they stepped out of Vogue magazine. I would be lying if I said I didn't struggle with my own body image and have to remind myself daily that it's okay to not fit their mold. I won't lie to you. We live in a world that feels the need to comment on every inch of our skin rather than focus on more important issues. Shut off the noise and ignore the words that are given in hate. You have better things to do than focus on their negativity.

Make your own mold.
