I am the type of person that shies away from anything controversial. It just makes me nervous! But there are instances when I can’t keep quiet and this is one of those times.
The day before yesterday I was SHOCKED and APPALLED to listen to the negative commentary that was directed towards San Antonio women by Charles Barkley. His comments were offensive, sexist and stereotypical to say the least. But, more importantly, his cruel words play in to such larger issues of bullying and unhealthy social body images.
After conversations with two fellow SA bloggers, Michelle Cantu and Melanie Mendez-Gonzales, we all were compelled to DO something. To show others that body-shaming women is NOT OK. If women have curves…celebrate them! Empower our girls and young women to love their bodies no matter the size.
So we are calling on our San Antonio female community to raise your voice! Show everyone that we are more than a number on a scale! Show that you are a #PROUDSAWOMAN!
If you would like to join in we encourage you to post your photo across social media with the hashtag #ProudSAWoman.
Thank you for speaking up and GO SPURS GO!
