Meghan Markle is no stranger to pathological control and we are no strangers to being force fed by its fruits.
And let's try to be clear, it's not fruit. This seafood extender content is squashed down like foie gras geese on a limited budget, fattening up real bullshit for anyone and with the constant atrophy of our neural pathways. (Disclaimer: link to articles published in a mendacious way. It is not necessary to click on them.)
It started with fashion, like these two from nowtolove.com.au:
I can't CONTAIN MY SURPRISE!
And then his family, in the Daily Mail and MSN.
Your family is disgusting, girl!
Look at your father! He is so sad – the saddest in the world.
And his family:
OK, now you're lighting up with gas, Now to love.
Then there is absolute clinging to straws with this relationship based on a relationship, because we desperately need some words about Meghan NOW:
And I can't even Look to the British press. It's like staring at the sun (which is not as harmful as reading the Sun).
OK, just a British effort:
But then my absolute favorite part happens. And it is then that, in a spectacularly non-edifying race at moral levels, the media becomes critical of the media without a trick of self-awareness.
Yes. Yes, I believe "they" have.
And they "call" the ugly stories created by "trolls" like this.
Brava, news.com.au, you and other stores can call that online hatred that you have no part in creating or disseminating.
Apparently "the most ridiculous story of Meghan Markle" reports that at one point he was about to marry Tom Cruise.
It is a courageous call also from the publication printed this:
The worst of them all
But they are stories like these that I find more chilling than the rest combined:
And it's not just because it's objectively horrendous.
It's that I can identify myself. And I don't know a single pregnant woman who hasn't been subjected to countless conversations, speculation and unwanted and unwanted judgments about how she plans to extract a child from her person.
It is dehumanizing, relentless and socially acceptable that even talking about it is a massive cliché.
But every time I see a title like this, my uterus packs its suitcase and threatens to leave me.
But wait a minute – that's it?
Prince Harry and Meghan issued a public statement claiming to have taken the "personal decision" keep the news of the private birth.
Well – hide!
This is something every new mom can understand
Reals can be quite difficult to relate to. They are rich, powerful and seem to constantly break the protocols of which we do not understand the importance.
But in this regard, Meghan, we have it.
When I was pregnant, I was shocked by the number of people who speculated about how I would give birth, where I was going to give birth and what it would do to my body.
I was told that I had to fear the hospital and the doctor I had chosen from more than one person.
No one – pregnant, not pregnant, civil or real – needs to have their home and their decisions on their interiors examined by the whole world.
But that's what's happening to Meghan. And this is basically what seems to be pregnant.
So here is Meghan, we understand. And remember, as Women's Day prefigures, birth is only the beginning.
