Today is one of my friend, S’s 21st birthday. We live in the US, so that means she’s finally legally able to drink. Her mom posted a comment on her Facebook page saying S is a blessing and that she should have fun and have a glass of wine when she goes out to dinner tonight. Sweet, right?
Then S’s aunt responded to that comment. “Don’t start her on that path…heard the glass of wine is really two when given in restaurants and too many calories, plus alcohol content far surpasses what a woman should be drinking.”
So S shouldn’t have fun on her freaking birthday because a) alcohol will make her fat and that’s the worst thing in the world and b) S isn’t allowed to decide for herself (as an adult!) what to do with her body because it might not be ladylike or something.
Guess it’s #HFSF
