Live and let live, motherfuckers

October 10, 2012

It’s high time I tell you guys about my favorite blog, Effing Dykes.

Why now? Well, I’ve wanted to write a post about body image like Effing Dykes’ The Body Electric ever since I started this blog (ever since I turned 10, actually). But I couldn’t get it right. Not in a million years could I have written something so beautiful or so right. So I’m really grateful she has written it. Please read and enjoy.

That url again: http://effingdykes.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-body-electric.html

Note: I’ve stolen the catchy phrase “live and let live, motherfuckers” (can you say “phrase of the week”?) from that post, as well as this picture, which reminds me of my wordpress profile pic as well as all of my friends from high school:

p.s. I had a wardrobe crisis last week when I realized I only owned one ugly plaid flannel shirt, but luckily Old Navy has an ugly plaid flannel shirt sale going on.

    All types of bodies can be attractive. All types of bodies can be sexy and desirable.

    It is all about how you feel about yourself.

    All types of bodies can be attractive and sexy, yes, coz beauty is in the eyes of beholders, but the flip side is that all types of bodies can be unattractive, too. I think it is sort of a mysterious thing what tickles your sense of beauty. But I dont think it is all about how you feel about yourself. Certainly how sexy do YOU think you are is entirely in your head, but how sexy do I, as another viewer, find you, is entirely in my head, is it not?

    I think if I understand correctly, is that, one thing that exerts a lot of pressure, is that, it is somehow unacceptable to us to be not sexy, or not attractive. If someone teases you and says that you are bad at directions, you laugh with them, but if somehow someone tells you that you are not sexy, then you are gravely hurt. I feel like that too to some extent. But why is that?

    Like I read somewhere, the only thing you can do with feelings is feeling them.

    You think so? I wonder if this feeling is the fruit of our culture. Some media tells blah blah beautiful, other media/blogs/authors say you are beautiful no matter what, so on and so forth, but what I am getting is the same message from all these sources, that for some reason it is vitally important to look/feel beautiful, and to not be so in your own mind or others is vastly disappointing. I think that is unnecessarily rigid. I think beauty as important or unimportant as many other descriptors. And as is with others, most people are average(by the definition of average), few excel.
