I think that I should spend some time looking for and listening to woman-friendly music.
The people who try to make me feel bad about being female, or who try to make me feel that I should have no say about who says what to me and to other people about my body in ways that I find disrespectful, invasive, and ultimately dangerous, are never successful in making me feel bad about myself or as if they should have the right to treat me any way that they want to treat me. However, what does happen is that the collective cruelty and/or insensitivity of those people makes itself felt.
