I just want to know, what does it look like to live in a society in which a woman’s body is really hers, not the land of men’s Manifest Destiny fantasies. What’s a world in which Bill Cosby’s TV legacy doesn’t take precedence over justice? What’s a world in which a girl’s breast don’t have to be burned to protect her from predatory men?
Do you know the difference between personality traits and character flaws? This is how you find Serenity.
How redeeming is that? To still feel worthy of goodness even at your worst, and to know that you are just working to return to that which you already are?
The greatest magic trick we know for our body is how to make it disappear. Eat less or throw up what you ate. Try all the latest diet craze and make it slumber party talk with your girls. Don’t go out to parties, and if you do, don’t wear bright colors, form fitting outfits, and be sure to not take pictures. The challenge is always, how little of you can be allowed to exist?
What doesn’t it feel like, when you start to believe that nothing about you needs to change, in order to deserve your own love?
