How Does Plastic Surgery Fit Into The Body Positivity Movement?

After I got my boob job I was called a “fake feminist” and accused of not supporting body positivity. SO I wanted to take a sec to define what body positivity is all about. 🙃 Women (& all genders, but especially women) are conditioned to aspire to unrealistic levels of perfection and beauty. As young…

    Anna, there’s something about you. Every single blog post you write keeps getting better and better and better. I can hear your voice and see you and I feel like I know you well as a friend. That sounds creepy but who cares!!!! Thank you for your transparency, realness, motivation, empowerment, education, and all the stuff you do for the B/B tribe! xoxo KKReplyCancel

    Everything about you seems fake. There is nothing in you that seems to represent feminism, which is about women gaining the same rights as men, not about filing your insecure behavior under “owning yourself.”
    You look like you aspire to win men over. If that is feminism, it is about as useful as turning tricks to gain rights. ReplyCancel

      Who are you to judge her as “fake” behind a computer screen? She’s by far the realest person I follow on Instagram. You’d know that if you follow her, but I’m assuming you don’t. Regardless, your comment is closed-minded and makes assumptions that say more about you than about her. I hope you see this and learn from it.ReplyCancel

Why I’m Getting A Boob Job 10 Years After My Breast Reduction (& Why I’m Sharing It With You)

Exactly 10 years ago, when I was 18, I made the life-changing decision to get a breast reduction. I did it because I hated my colossal-sized breasts. The physical pain in my back and shoulders was bad, but the emotional pain was unrivaled. People would stare (sometimes touch) and my skin would crawl. Gossip flew…

    Everything you write I think “Wow!” You are so brave and have already inspired me to be much more honest and open in my life and maybe the next step is with cosmetic procedures. Thank you for being youReplyCancel

    I’ve been following you on Insta for a while but this is the first blog post I’ve read and I just want to say keep it up, girl. It’s refreshing and thoughtful and I will keep reading. I’ve had tiny boobs my whole life and judged people who got boob jobs because I did see it as fake and since I don’t have the desire to get one, it made it easy. But you’re totally right – if you’re doing it for you and only you, there’s nothing to judge. We all strive to be happy and proud of ourselves. Hope your recovery is smooth and you are thrilled with the finished product!ReplyCancel

It’s Time To Integrate Men Into The Gender Revolution. Here’s How.

I spoke on the Diversity & Inclusion panel at a women’s conference recently. An audience member asked how we can make men feel more comfortable in this #MeToo and #TimesUp era, to which another panelist (and woke feminist boss) replied, “Who cares if men feel uncomfortable? Women have been uncomfortable for all of history.” The…

    Unfortunately, the current atmosphere is so polarizing that some of our male allies feel demonized for existing and therefore, swing to a team that will embrace them. They start being more vocal in the anti-feminist movement and then we’ve lost them. I love this for including men and encouraging dialogue. I had some serious and amazing conversations with my husband who had changed his tune on some things. It angered me and I became defensive instead of inclusive. Then I looked at it from his perspective. It was a no win situation for him. 

    One thing I don’t feel the need to do is praise men for not violently assaulting women. I feel like some guys are like, “well I never raped anyone..” yeah, you’re not supposed to… but there has to be a way to include them in this movement. I like these ideas. You can’t expect anyone to act outside their own best interests. So we have to find a way to include them. ReplyCancel

Is Trump The Rocketfuel Feminism Needed?

Is it possible that in a few years, feminists will be grateful that Trump was elected President? Trust me, that’s a question that I never, ever, not in a million years, thought I’d ask myself. But I’m convinced that the answer is yes. In 2011 I wrote my UC Berkeley honors thesis on “Making diversity…

    I was studying National Security Strategy at Stanford when Trump took office. Everything was so confused. He didn’t follow any strategy we were learning about. I was at a loss. And clearly, it didn’t matter how bright you were in the field, he was appointing the most random individuals to key positions. I felt like giving up too. But then redirected my energy toward being part the change even if its a small part.ReplyCancel

    • AnnaMay 30, 2018 - 12:44 pm

      I relate to this 100%. We’ll make the biggest difference by redirecting our energy. (P.S. I’m excited to see what Globelle Affairs is all about!)ReplyCancel
