What Makes You Think You're So Pretty Anyway???
So many women don't know how gorgeous they really are. My Curvy Queens are just as pretty as the size two cultural standard for beauty. My Majestic Minorities are just as beautiful as the blonde haired blue eyed cultural standard. And let me tell you why...
I have been told how amazing I look my entire ADULT life. It is important that I differentiate between an adult and my childhood for very good reason. The first and foremost being that when I grew up it wasn't cool to be a minority, to be gay, to be a lesbian, to be fat, or anything other than the above image. And although we have come a long way in 2019...It is still common belief that a skinny person is better looking than a fat person, or a black person is less than a white person. As far as we have come... it's still pretty fucking sad as to what is perceived as acceptable vs. what is not. And that is why it is SO IMPORTANT TO JUST LOVE OURSELVES!!!

We all have days when we feel less than, no matter what our shape, face, or color looks like. I am pretty sure the people who have the features of the societal norm feel the same way some days. We all feel ugly at some point in our lives. The solution is to love yourself for who you are no matter what anyone else thinks you may be. You can be fashionable and gorgeous no matter what shape, size, or color, you may be. But you will NEVER be any of the above until you truly believe you are, because... you...say...so! Love yourself and the rest of the world will love you too. If diversity is good enough for Vogue, then it is good enough for me.
