You are a She-ro or Hero! Yes you are! 💪🏽👀❤️🙋🏽‍♀️

A woman can be noted for her courageous acts or her nobility of her character. But to have special achievements, abilities, or personal qualities, to be considered a role model or a heroine is something in itself. So what do I feel like when I hear that? I think a woman is strong in her femininity and is not forced into a male hero structure. We don't have to be because we're already heroes. I'm talking to you. That's right

Um, and I somewhat look at women like that, and that their self sacrificing roles are ones that are not always seen, not always cheerled with pompoms. And, you know, sometimes it's done at night with the kid that's throwing up all night and has the fever. Women are also doing something miraculous. They're bringing life into the world. Yes, men have a part in that, of course, and their fathers. And that's very important role also

But this is a man telling you women out there that you are very heroic. And there's been a lot of wounding, a lot of generational, toxic things brought down through generations upon men that abdicated their roles, and then they've inflicted that toxicity onto women. Right? And so that's what's happened. But that doesn't mean that, though, men are not having the ability to reflect back to women, their encouragement to women and lifting women up, that they're not heroes

But other than that, I don't have a big circle of men. Love my dad and my uncles. However, I did not always get that type of support when I needed it. Not from my dad or my uncles or whomever. My best friend, yes. My brother, yes. But I guess all I'm saying is this. I'm grateful for you today. I'm grateful that you took the time to be able to say, hey, wait a minute. Women are heroes

You. Well, you're welcome. And I know that so many women do. And it kind of breaks my heart, to tell you the truth. This is going to sound disgusting, I know, but it is true. You know, in the. In the gay community, some gay men, you know, they. They have such a. They'll be friends with women, but they have such a repulsion of the female body. And I just hate that

And I love my husband, don't get me wrong, but I'm going to use this as an example. When I married 25 years ago, my first husband, the way a woman was treated then is entirely different from the way a woman is treated now. And he's a good man and everything like that, but there's a difference. And I don't know if it's a matter of how they're raised or how society has taught them now, but it's different
