If you haven’t been paying attention to the #LoveYourself movement, you might not be aware of the ways in which this movement has been pushing a certain type of self-love.
The #LoveYouYourself crowd, or Love Yourself movement, is a group of people who are attracted to each other’s emotional states, often with the goal of fostering mutual happiness.
Many of the #loveyouself movement’s supporters include women, who feel that they can’t love themselves enough to live as happy as possible.
The idea behind the movement is that women need to embrace their femininity and be more “feminine,” so that they’re more available for men.
As a result, many women seek out the #LOVEYourself groups in hopes of achieving a more masculine self.
But for many of these women, the #loveless movement seems to be working for them.
In the #LAWeekly article, it’s apparent that these women are doing well because of their feminine ideals, but it’s also apparent that they aren’t getting the emotional support they need to get there.
This is a sad state of affairs.
It is clear that #LOveless is being used to perpetuate a false and damaging idea about women, and that the people behind this movement aren’t giving them the emotional help they need.
