One of my favorite websites that I follow on facebook Pigtail Pals posted this picture this morning:
Here is an excerpt from Pigtail Pals mission statement on their website:
“I’m not anti-pink. I’m not anti-princess (although I really do not dig the Disney version). I’m not anti-girly. I’M ANTI-LIMITATION. I want my daughter to be bold. I want her to be unafraid to be intelligent. I want her to be respected for her accomplishments. I want her to know that she can be an astronaut, a doctor, a pilot, a carpenter, a firefighter. She will not be raised to think that the world belongs only to boys and that she is merely a pretty thing in it.
I think our girls deserve more. I think they deserve better. I think it is time to redefine girly.
Redefine Girly means that our girls will show the world they aren’t demure princesses or sassy divas or spoiled brats. Our girls will show the world they have great potential. Redefine Girly means we can expect the same things for our daughters, from our daughters, as we do our sons.”
I ♥ Pigtail Pals
But then I read in the comments that she got the photo from Operation Beautiful. I was not familiar with them, but I’m glad I am now!
“The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.” If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.”
Good Morning, Beautiful!
