highlyeccentric: A woman in a tuxedo, looking determined (tux - dressed and ready)
Presented without comment

It reminds me of the ‘real woman’ nonsense that is trotted out so often. To counter negative body image and poor self esteem, the beauty industry is expected to celebrate diversity in women - to reassure women of all shapes, sizes, colours and levels of conventional attractiveness that they are ALL beautiful, and none of them should be excluded from the privilege of being hailed as such.


But is this really what we should be advocating for? The right for a more diverse selection of women to be positively objectified for their looks?
