This morning when I scrolled through my Facebook feed I stopped when I read the title of a post - "The Tampon Commercial That EVERYBODY should see (especially us guys)". It caught my attention but I suspected that it was probably something silly or demeaning. I was even more curious when I read the comments that some of my FB friends had written under the post. I clicked on the link and was affected to say the least. Shared the post. Showed my boyfriend and cried. The message touched me deeper than I first thought.
Like a girl – what does the word mean to you? A little girl in the film could express it precisely when she was asked. She didn't think it sounded very nice, "It's like you are trying to humiliate someone.” That’s exactly how it feels to me and I got the insight on how this has affected me a lot in my life. In my childhood, when I would rather not want to be a woman, not because I wanted to be a man, but I wanted to be me and nothing else. But I always have felt like an outsider, that I don’t fit in. It has been something that I have been thinking a lot about recently. Why don’t I fit in? Do I want to fit in? What do I want to fit into? When I saw the film, some have fallen into place. See for yourself.
I will use the words "like a girl" with pride, to encourage – not to humiliate. I am me and I am a girl! Thanks to Always made this different commercial! (Never thought I'd be grateful for an advertising either!)
Always and forever me, Tracy, living life like a girl! And it feels soooo good!
