How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

Why D&D can’t write woman part one(x)

Show!Melisandre 
is reduced to the depressing stereotype of “strange foreign seductress with evil morals”.
mock davos for his son’s death.
 taunts davos and pretty much blames the battle of blackwater on him. 
has an evil vagina. 
is reduced to nothing more than a nice ass and a mad woman. 
seduces stannis. 
actually gets naked at all apart from the birthing scene. 
pretty much only used to be a sexual object or an antagonistic socio-path. 
manipulates selyse into madness. 
taunts maester cressen, and gives him a smug look as he dies. 
is shown as “evil” when allowing people to burn, while daenerys is shown as a “hero” when doing so.
Book!Melisandre 
never mocks maester cressen, is never cruel to him.
knows that cressen wants to poison her, but tells him that he doesn’t have to, giving him an outlet and a choice.
is friendly with selyse, but doesn’t manipulate her into madness. 
doesn’t manipulate selyse into burning her own brother.
 is only implied to have slept with stannis. 
offers her condolences to davos for his loss. 
actually respects ser davos. 
her drive of helping stannis and saving the realm is a lot more proufound. 
is much more than a sex object with questionable morals.
is regarded as a very beautiful woman, but not a sex object.
makes devan stay at the wall, cause she wishes not for davos to lose any more sons.
doesn’t care that davos never swears to harm her. 
is the only one to visit davos when he is imprisoned.
is actually a human being, with human emotions. 
doesn’t blame davos for stannis’ loss at the blackwater, cause davos was not the once to convince stannis not to bring her along.
