I found this video a couple month’s ago on Facebook and I could not have been happier to see ‘Break the Box’ campaign circulating throughout the media.
Overcoming gender stereotypes has been a pressing issues within our modern world, as sexuality and appearance don’t fall hand in hand anymore.
A couple night’s ago my mum’s friend asked me why girls decide to pin back their breasts after watching Ruby Rose’s ‘Breakfree’ video. This was a completely serious question due to the phenomenon that your physical appearance is a direct correlation to your sexual preference.
He understood Ruby likes girls, but he didn’t understand the reasons why she needed to go from a girl to boy in the video. So I took the time to explain to this adult that women chose to pin their boobs back for many reasons; all of them individual and personal.
It’s a choice to judge someone’s sexuality based on how they look, but remember it’s an an outdated ideal that needs to be put to rest.
Break the Box and overcome gender stereotypes.
Till next time,
