National Go Topless Day
Well, I did it again! It somehow slipped my mind and I totally spaced National Go Topless Day! You would have thought that it would have crossed my mind many a time as I begrudgingly woke up and put on yet another bra and t-shirt. This year the event fell on a Sunday which meant I would probably have to skip the t-shirt for something even more frilly, possibly with buttons. The world is so oppressing. I mean, the one day where the world says it's okay to parade around practically nude and I have to have a total brain lapse and forget! After getting to church and looking around, I guess I wasn't the only one that forgot. I guess I am thankful I forgot, since everyone else did. Being the only one would have been awkward, not just because the air conditioner was on full blast, but because it was also high counsel Sunday. So does this mean that because I didn't remember to go topless today that I don't believe in equality between men and women? Darn straight I don't! In my world, men are men and women are women. We were built different on purpose for different purposes. I don't want to be a mans equal, heck, I don't want to be any ones equal, I want to be me! Why can't people accept that they were given their body, be it male or female, for a reason? This equality stuff is for the birds. If I were a mans equal then I should be expected to do everything a man is expected to do, including: lifting heavy things, registering for the draft, being the bread winner, lifting heavy things, providing for his family, etc. There are plenty of women, I am sure, that wouldn't mind lifting heavy things and would give up staying at home and spending more time in the kitchen, these are the same women that think that if a man can walk around without a shirt on, by dang, so can they. I'm not on board with that. I prefer to stay in the home, and yes, in the kitchen. I want to make use of the body God gave me by being feminine and some day bearing children. I don't want to run around topless and have to have people gawk and feel awkward around me, not to mention the back aches! Forget it. God made me a woman and like my Mother Eve, I have realized my nakedness and have decided to covered it up out of respect to God. I just wish the world would stop tearing each other down with this equality stuff and instead, build each gender up by celebrate how amazing our differences really are! Being a woman is awesome! I think men are awesome too! We are two different kinds of awesomeness, like peanut butter and grape jelly. Both pb and j are products of plants that grow totally opposite of each other, one on a vine that stretches up tall and the other from a bush buried deep in the soil. Their taste is unique, one earthy and hearty, the other sweet. The grape is totally different than the peanut and we can appreciate and celebrate them differently but if they were equal there would be no differences to celebrate and instead of enjoying a nutty and sweet sandwich, we would just have a bland sandwich. What I am trying to say is that we need the peanuts and the grapes! Love who and what you are. Celebrate your unique differences. Build up genders, stop trying to make them equal. And for pity sake, keep your shirts on!
