I have these weird opposing thoughts I need to clear up in my noggin. Might need your help. I think every woman in her right darn mind should believe and see their beauty...Overall, I'm pretty much enamored with how groovy we as a gender are. We're these phenomenal beings that make the world go round. That being said I can't STAND when I see sex pot picture posts that feature a girl with Zoolander/Fish lips, sticking out her chest and making "pretty" for an audience of douches.
Can't we feel our beauty...deserve our beauty and believe in it without it having to translate to who notices us and who thinks we're worthy enough to drool over in petty, shallow (and might I add) indifferent ways. (We all know sex sells, but the definition of what's sexy...or sexy enough changes every stupid day.)
I've been super passive aggressive about my outcries concerning the girls who think sexy is the way to be. I want to shake all of those lost souls and tell them to pick up a book. (Preferably Think by Lisa Bloom) Tell them to get a clue and some self respect and honor. I don't know how to start that dialogue though.
Too much of that missing from the world...
"It's not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful. Women are taught to feel we're not good enough, that we must live up to someone else's standards. But my aim is to cherish myself as I am." ~ Elle Macpherson
