Guys, its about to be 2016 and we women are stronger then ever. I mean think of it this way, no matter how you feel about Hilary Clinton, she could be our first woman president. We have spoken out against cat calling, we are reclaiming the word Slut with Slut Walks, and we are refusing to accept the notion that what we wear or how we look is a reflection of who we are.
It is almost 2016 and we are not taking any shit. We are demanding basic human respect. We are demanding equality.
But there is one REALLY HUGE thing standing in our way.
Girl on girl hate has been ingrained in us since birth. Every single part of our beings are compared, criticized, and spit out, so really, it's hard not to feel jealous when some other girl walks by blessed with every attribute that you are told you should have.
But before we lash out in anger, in jealously, in disappointment that we don't stand up to standards that aren't even possible, lets bit our tongue.
Because every girl has been told there is something wrong with them; thigh gaps cover social media pages, and magazines flashing perfect smiles over perfect breasts over a slim waist makes even "the prettiest" look away in shame. So we females need to stop adding to that criticism!
So what if someone doesn't dress how you do, if they like their hair a certain way or weight more or less then you? Embrace their differences because they are just as special as you are!
And for the love of God, do not try and tear a confident girl down because you don't feel confident in yourself. We have been taught confidence in girls is conceited and really, there is nothing wrong with self love. In fact, it should be something we STRIVE FOR!

Now, I don't know about you but I loved the part where they said jealously and admiration has been getting all messed up in our minds. If we just compliment instead of insult not only will we have a better outlook, but women everywhere will becomes stronger and more confident.
Plus, I am sick and tired of hearing people argue with feminism; completely ignore the real societal issues we have because "girls are just as bad as guys".
We can be so much better to each other. So in 2016, lets build each other up, not tear each other down.
