everything good makes you fat an addict or broke
what is a woman who likes to read mystery novels? what is a woman whose favorite color is purple? what is a woman who likes carrot cake? what is a woman who likes to travel?
we don’t ask those questions because they seem frivolous and irrelevant. but for some reason we collectively as a society are obsessed with labeling and demeaning women on the basis of their sexuality.
i personally find labeling a woman on the basis of her sexuality as silly as labeling a woman on the basis of whether or not she likes scarves would be.
does it truly matter?
This is what happens when we hold dick up to be some transformatory thing
Because apparently a woman who likes sex needs her own special fucking category of subhumanity or some shit.
She’s a woman. That’s IT.
"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
"Don’t believe in anything."
"What’s the last belief you held?"
"That I could believe in something."
you see, the thing about self esteem is
it doesn’t matter how many people you have supporting you, telling you you’re talented, or attractive, or smart
because in the end, if you truly cannot believe it yourself
or worse, if you depend on those outside forces to confirm positive perceptions of yourself
you still feel pretty shitty.
American Apparel’s model, age 62.
There was something so compelling about Jacky’s look and energy when we first spotted her in a New York restaurant this winter, we introduced ourselves and pulled up a chair. During a long discussion that touched on everything from career choices and nutrition to insights on relationships, age and beauty, we asked if she would consider being photographed by us. We were thrilled when she agreed.
I hope I look this good at 62.
