I grew up reading fairytales.
I grew up believing in god.
I grew up believing in happily ever-after, and in prince charmings.
I grew up believing all men were like my father; respectful. I never thought that I would have to look for that trait in all men.
Yes, I grew up with a false mindset, and discovered life is nothing similar to a fairy tale.
But I still believed that most men were respectful.
I find it humorous yet awful, that I have to search for respect; that it’s not a given, that it’s not already there.
I never expected that it’d be so hard to find a respectable man, that does not just take women for their bodies, but for their mind and soul as well.
Let me ask you; what is a woman without her body? What is a woman’s mind, soul, and heart without her body?
To answer this question truthfully, based off of our current society, I’d say nothing.
But, in a man’s defense, how can you respect nothing?
