Fuck "Beauty". I'm Almighty, Motherfucker

Why are women's bodies up for public debate?

Why is my appearance suitable for public scrutiny?

It is very fucking convenient that women have been programmed to be obsessed with their external appearance.

For as long as women are distracted by society's dictations on "beauty" they will never pose a threat to the system.

So long as a woman's attention is focused outwards, she will forever be divorced from her innate magic and power.

She will never be united with her true unstoppable nature.

“A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one.”
— Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

 

Getting women so fucking strung out about how they look is a sick & twisted game that has gone way too far, taken too many lives, and destroyed too many hearts.

 

Too many women have sacrificed their aliveness for a mythic standard of "beauty" determined by corporations governed by greed. It is fucking wrong and none of us should be okay with such attacks on our sanity.

The "beauty" industry really only promotes inner ugliness - self hate, comparison & physical preoccupation to alienate people from themselves.

 

It is so embarrassing, so down-right pitiful + perverse to see the most powerful beings on this planet, the bringers of life + death, made of the unsurpassable power of nature, earth + the ether, reduced to tears from their relection in the mirror. Degraded and shamed and trapped in a cycle of low self esteem and self consciousness.

 

The "beauty" industry is committing heinous crimes against humanity every day by conditioning vulnerable minds to think that they are not good enough and to project all of their power outwards, where it has no real value.

It is a cold and calculated operation that preys on our longing to be accepted, wanted and loved.

 

Fuck being "beautiful" if a genocide on joy is the price to pay.

Fuck being "hot" if intimacy & connection are taken away.

Fuck being "desired", "sexy", "gorgeous", "fuckable" - if I have to prostitute my wellness, my sisters wellness and our daughters wellness to afford, appease & attain THEIR ideals.

 

NO.

 

I will not conform to your standard of beauty.

I will not be a slave to the sickness of standardised, subsidised & societial-iased desires.

You will not hijack my joy, body and power.

 

I define what is beautiful.

I decide to love myself and radiate beauty from within.

I shine with soul deep beauty.

 

I am a Woman.

and I will tear your billboards down with my bare, unmanicured, fucking hands.

Fuck beauty.

I'm Almighty Motherfucker.
