We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.

Now accepting words of comfort and support for tomorrow when I’ll be subjected to my only phobia.

I swear it’s 18 hours away and I’m already on the brink of tears.

I JUST PUT MY SHIRT ON AND THERE WAS A SPIDER IN IT!!!!!!!!

or did you just put a shirt on that a spider was already wearing?

thats so rude

Okay so I’m gonna sell this set off for $10. Postage by itself is $6 unfortunately, owing to them being just a little too thick to get through the letter slot *sigh*

These are a lower quality print than my newer ones will be, but the new ones will be more expensive. 

However if you wanted to order them with another item, say a LoK neckwarmer, postage would be free, so you’d get these for $4.

Message me for more details.
