As Myself

Feminism gives me permission to fully engage in the “as myself” part of  “loving my neighbor as myself.”

Because of feminism I can stop trying to make myself smaller and more attractive and more modest and more confirmative and instead celebrate my body as an image of God.

I don’t need to shrink myself down to fit into a socially acceptable mold. This unruly, unsubmissive body is the one God made for me, and when I am secure in that knowledge I can turn to my neighbors and love the misfits and the outliers in all their unruly, unsubmissive glory too.
