i need it????!!!??!

holy god

Sweet JESUS! Get it girl. GET. IT.

Last time I shared a post about big women being beautiful, I got some responses that indicated some followers had never in their lives seen women like them being portrayed as desirable.  So I’m doing it again.

This bears repeating.  You may look at a woman—maybe yourself—and think, “There is just no possible way she could be considered beautiful.”  Because she does not look like the women who are offered up to us as beautiful.

But make no mistake: we are being TOLD that those women who’re offered up to us are beautiful.  We are being TOLD that women who don’t look like that AREN’T beautiful.  In non-verbal cues of lighting, fashion, the reactions of one fictional character to another, this is not simply some spontaneous or evolved cultural agreement that fat is ugly.  This is a marketing campaign.

Because marketing is all about defining sexiness, and then selling it.  Is cola sexy? Give Coke’s PR department a bit, and they will make it sexy, and then you will want to buy it because marketing is all about making you desire.  Marketers manipulate and control the definition of desirability, and IT CAN CHANGE.  It can change at a moment’s notice.  Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Garfield can go from long-necked weird-looking dorks to international sex symbols with a single poster.  It is not a mistake or a coincidence that ‘sexy’ has gone from being a concept of sexual desirability to become slang for ‘a concept appealing enough to get people to buy into it.’

If you think you are not beautiful, it’s because you are being told so.  The line standing between you and being a beautiful, desirable woman, or man, is not your looks.  It’s not your body type or your health or your muscle/fat ratio.  It is a photographer’s skill at framing and lighting and a well-paid beauty consultant’s application of cosmetics and styling in a way that we have been conditioned to recognize as markers of sexual appeal.

All girls continue to be taught when they are young, if not by their parents then by the culture around them, that they must earn the right to be loved — that “femaleness” is not good enough. This is a female’s first lesson in the school of patriarchal thinking and values. She must earn love. She is not entitled. She must be good enough to be loved. And good is always defined by someone else, someone on the outside. By bell hooks in Communion: Female Search for Love (via daniellemertina)
