When I first saw Kate Middleton in that red dress, carrying her baby, walking in those HEELS just hours after giving birth, I had a moment of “Damn, I didn’t look like that hours after giving birth.”
And I keep seeing social media posts with “real women” comparing their post birth photos to Kate’s. Some are jealous of her. Some are judging her. I’ve seen lots of people with the same attitude I had at first. We have this gut reaction that says, “That’s not what women look like after giving birth.”
And we’re right, kind of. Women don’t naturally look like that after giving birth. And we shouldn’t be expected to. Kate Middleton is a real woman, and she shouldn’t be subjected to that bullshit either.
