What Representation Means to Me [CC]
There are a lot of people who don’t get to see themselves in books, tv shows, and movies very often, including asexual people, those with social anxiety, and autistic people. As someone who fits into these groups, I want to talk about how much it means to me when I finally do find myself in literature and media. I’d love to hear about your own experiences with representation - tell me in the comments!
“I wanted to be a part of telling women there is no segregation. There is no need to ever not feel beautiful or glamorous. There should be nothing that gets in your way.” ~ @officialjameelajamil. I love everything Jameela Jamil has to say. I heard about her through reading @taylorswift’s Variety interview and how she has the best “love yourself” quotes so I looked her up. Ever since then I have been inspired by her and everything that she stands for. Jameela has made me learn to love myself more than I have in a long time. I feel more confident because of her. And her activism is inspiring me to try and help the world somehow too. I absolutely love how she is all about women and girls standing up for each other and not judging each other by their looks. She really is making progress in changing society’s beauty standards. She truly is amazing. Today is Jameela’s birthday and I had to share a quote from her that I love. I now feel even more confident and pretty and I’m proud of it!!!
