Kenya media personality, model, and human rights activist Pinky Ghelani is calling out people who have a skewed perception when it comes to aging.
The 41-year-old highlighted how she dislikes backhanded compliments such as "too good for one's age" when it comes to complimenting women, noting that there is absolutely nothing wrong with looking like the years one has spent on earth living. And I concur.
Ghelani's move to call out people who act as if aging is something they ought to be ashamed of was brought on by a netizen who remarked that the mother of 2 looked "too good for her age."
Responding to the comment, Pinky went on to challenge people to dump the fear they have of aging adding that personally she had her youth and she enjoyed it, that is a chapter that is gone and now she is excited for the journey that lies ahead.
"Who is to say that this isn't what we are meant to look like... I am not hankering after youth. I had it. I enjoyed it. Now I am ready for what's next," the mother of 2 said.
Following this the philanthropic fashion enthusiast went on to encourage a shift in perspective noting that people should learn to complement people without bringing other things to it.
Pinky emphasized that there was no need to bring age to the picture when offering compliments as to some it is a sensitive topic but at the end of the day it highly didn't matter and to some extent perpetuates unrealistic beauty standards.
"Sure, things happen to your mind, body, and hormones that make you say WTF constantly... but that's all women all the time! Stop saying you look good for your age... you look good will suffice," Pinky strongly added.
