Earlier this week there were photos leaked of Fifth Harmony member, Lauren Jauregui kissing a female. I am not sure who it was or anything but I felt like those leaked photos should just stay away from my blog. It probably would have given my clicks but I just didn’t feel right posting them.
Yesterday though Lauren wrote a very powerful letter on Billboard about being a woman, and opened up about being bisexual, in the new Trump America that we are about to have to live in.
I will be posting my favorite passengers from it, but I think you should read all of it. Considering how well written the piece is, it deserves to be read, and you can read it all here.
Lauren starts off by saying “To every single Trump supporter trying to say that voting for Trump does not mean that you are racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, assholes… that you just like the way he didn’t really care what people thought and just said whatever he wanted… that he wasn’t a politician, so he wasn’t part of the establishment and didn’t have corrupt money backing him…”
On womanhood, Lauren gets real about it. She gets very real about how it is actually harder to be a woman. “I am proud to be a woman. Proud that the sex between my thighs provides a strength and resilience in me that only other women can feel, that my body curves in ways that allow me to create life within me, that my entire life is filled with adversity and doubt and people questioning my intelligence and my artistic potential and my expression of myself and my virtue and honor because I am too much woman. I am proud that I get to prove them all wrong. I am proud that I have to work even harder for it. I was raised to feel that I can do ANYTHING, and I will always believe that.”
She ends with a very passionate and important final statement “we are not America indivisible any longer, we are united on two separate sides; Love and Hatred. We are not “whining” about our presidential choice losing, we are screaming battle cries against those whose political and personal agendas threaten our lives and sanity. We are making sure you hear us, no matter how much it bothers you, we EXIST.”
All that I can say is good for Lauren. She is using her platform to come out and talk about real issues. She is only 20 years old and clearly wise behind her years.
Thank you for speaking your mind.
