What are these, you ask? Well, basically these publications/organizations/periodicals are works that share the experiences of young girls trapped in the static stage of youth. Truth is, us girls are very complex people. No one quite understands us because no one ever hears how we speak when we are just being ourselves.
Girls are also neglected because of their emotions, physical appearances, menstrual cycles, and sexual experiences. The hegemony of the mainstream media does not always accept these incidents in girls' lives because well, no one really understands what it means to cry over absolutely "nothing." No one understands why once every month we ride an emotional roller coaster. No one understands how girls feel after being assaulted, abused, or molested in any way, shape, or form.
When girls are analyzed, they are studied in the presence of adults or between the walls of a doctor's office. This all-girl DIY ethos allows girls to get together, whether on a blog, an online magazine, or in a book, and use their voices that the mainstream media don't always support.
Majority of my followers are girls, and if you ladies have experienced anything like what I have mentioned in this post please, please, PLEASE, send me an e-mail to my school account: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can share any information you'd like! Your names will not be used in my analysis and everything will be strictly confidential. I just want to study your behaviours and how you've dealt with them. Perhaps you've started a blog or joined a certain subculture that encourages young females, like ourselves, to speak up in a world that may not want to listen.
Thank you so so much!
