Welcome, Alpana! I hope you leave many more comments like the one you left here - though I have to say that I don't consider crying at the drop of a hat and being a strong feminist to be mutually exclusive positions! I'm like other commentors.....I read the first paragraph, and saw myself in secondary school. I didn't talk about boys and make up and hair and other things, and so I was left alone most of the time. Now I dress modestly (I wore a uniform in both my schools) and still don't talk about boys and make up and other things :-) and I'm still alone.

I haven't been able to log on to Typepad recently....yes, Wendy, that is exactly it. To paraphrase another modestynik :-D I know, I love how wanting to be seen for my mind and personality first is so quickly translated into being 'uncomfortable' and 'ashamed' of my body. I am comfortable with my body. I am so comfortable with it, that I don't need to show it off to anybody.

Pink_Hijabi - really? I didn't know that about the tape.... Rocky, I would prefer not to link to Vogue on this page. I'm sure if you spent the time on google, you could find it yourself....
This is beautiful. Thank you for reaching out. Thank you for trying to be there when so many others don't bother. sincerely, Margaret
