#Imnot my size  Vutomi: “This word makes me feel disrespected because most men who use this word don’t even look at my size and are old enough to be my father. It makes me feel cheap because it makes me think that these men look at me and think that it is appropriate that I sleep with older men. Men use this word because they don’t respect women and they think we are just sex objects. It is not OK for men to use these words when calling women”  http://claoli.wix.com/imnot-#!portfolio/curh

#Imnot stupid   Dineo: ​​“Both males and females tend to use this word in a joking way, not knowing the emotional strain it causes. Because I am constantly laughing and socializing most people think that there is nothing more to me. They think that I lack any kind of intellectual ability. They think I am stupid. I am currently completing my Honours. I’m only 21. So, stupid? Nah, I think not! People use this word to make themselves feel better”  http://claoli.wix.com/imnot-#!portfolio/curh

Alex: ""I chose this word because people like to make fun of things that really matter to me, I am a short tempered person so I tell them to stop making fun of me and then they call me crazy. I want people to take me seriously. When people tell me I am something I am not it has a negative effect of me. It lowers my self-esteem and confidence"

Zosa: “ It’s easier to label people than to spend the time trying to understand why they might be upset. Instead of taking women's thoughts and views seriously, we are labelled as moody, hormonal and 'being difficult'. Men on the other hand, are allowed to have bad days or offer confrontational perspectives.” http://claoli.wix.com/imnot-#!portfolio/curh
