This past Saturday, Ayesha Curry tweeted some things that people felt were offensive. The Twitter community bashed her for her views on clothing trends and it caused a lot of talk in the media. So, what did she tweet?
"Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters"
"Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I'll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight"
Really offensive, right? Uh, no.
Ayesha Curry is known for having a beautiful family and loving relationship with NBA Star, Steph Curry. Everyone praised her in the media for being so "put together" and being the total package; a beautiful wife and mother that cooks, carries herself in a respectable way, and supports her husband to the fullest. HOWEVER, two tweets caused people to lose all respect for her. BUT WHY?!
I'll tell you why. Our society is messed up. People will support you until you disagree with their lifestyle. Are we not entitled to our own opinions? Was she not just stating what she dislikes? Is it a crime for her to feel that way? Then, society is quick to accuse others of slut-shaming. It disgusts me that our society looks at women who are half-naked with no morals as queens instead of acknowledging the REAL queens. Ayesha is a woman who respects herself enough to only show off her "good stuff" to the man that God joined her with; the only one who "matters." Meanwhile, our women are showing their "good stuff" to any and everyone. What will you have left for the man that matters in your life? Nothing. Ayesha is also raising two little girls and because of her, they will see how important it is to love and respect yourself. We all want respect, but some of us do not do the things that it takes to get them. Backwards, right? Yep.
God made our bodies as temples. Why don't we treat them that way? Now I get the whole argument that you should embrace your body, but there are classy, tasteful ways to do so. Do not let these celebrities fool you into thinking that the tasteless way they present themselves is just them "embracing their bodies." That's some extreme BS. We need to wake up.
Men will not see you for more than just your body if that is all that you are showing them. I honestly believe that Steph would not have had the same respect for Ayesha if she presented herself in a classless way. They would not be married with two lovely little girls. He probably would've "entertained" her and that's it. Do you want to be "entertained" or loved and respected? A man should appreciate everything about us from our mind to our spirit. He is going to miss all of that if all he can focus on is your behind (in my grandma voice).
Ayesha Curry matters to me because she is the epitome of a queen. Her comments matter because she unintentionally schooled our society on how a woman carries herself. No, she was not slut-shaming. (I mean seriously? It's Twitter. We all should be able to tweet our opinions without getting bashed for them.) Instead of dragging her name because she is not into the things that our society is into, we should let her live.
#TeamAyesha haha :)
