Brilliant Post: You Don't Have To Be Pretty


You Don't Have to Be Pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female".

I keep thinking, every time I link to this, that EVERY PERSON IN THE WORLD must have read this by now. And then, inevitably, there is someone who has not. Further impetus to keep posting it!
