People say you should be proud of your body no matter what. People are proud of their stretch marks and their fat, but is it okay to proud of my genital warts? I want to be proud of them, but whenever I try to be, people be hating on me. They say “Ewww those are so gross” or “Ewww why is these ooze coming out?” It’s hard to be proud of something that so many people don’t like. Should I try to be proud still or should I start to hide them more and be ashamed of my body like society wants me to be? -- Wanda from Springfield, Illinois
Well, that’s a difficult situation. A lot is made about being proud of your body, but there are limits. Specifically, anything relating to the genitals should be covered up. If you’re going to be proud of your body it should be of things that are always visible like your body fat, stomach, or face. There’s just a certain natural level of shame people are supposed to have about their genitalia. Unfortunately we still live in a society where we can’t just walk around fully naked so being proud of your genitals is not as important as being proud of your stretch marks or facial misfortunes. Because of that, walking around showing people your genital warts will be met with a lot of criticism. Be proud of it at home and with the people you’re close with, but when it comes to the general public, there’s nothing wrong with being ashamed. It’s totally normal and okay to be ashamed of your genital situation. As long as you’re proud of everything else, it shouldn’t really affect your life in a negative way.
