"You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”."-
Erin (from A Dress A Day)
I wish someone would have told me this when I was younger.
My Life as a Feminista: really though, you should never give someone your opinion about their...
really though, you should never give someone your opinion about their body if they do not ask you directly. you never know what emotions you will make them feel. you never know what thoughts they’ll have as a result of what they said. you have no idea what their relationship is with their body,…
actually fuck everyone who is saying negative shit about kim kardashian’s body right now
there is never a time when your unsolicited opinion about a woman’s body is important or relevant, but it is especially not relevant when they are fucking pregnant and going through natural changes in their body
THANK YOU SHE’S FUCKING
AND EVEN IF SHE WASN’T AND SHE WAS JUST “FAT”

This is an excellent metaphor for what most people go through. Though I think the art was intended to be an inspirational, “go get your dreams” type image, i think its a lot more sad and true than that. The unicorn is a mthical beast that doesn’t look anything like a rhino, except that they both have a horn. There is nothing that a rhino can do to become a unicorn, short of destorying its mind and completely altering its body.
This isn’t a stretch for what most people go through when they have body image issues. They look in the magazines and she glorious beautiful people, people so beautiful they don’t actually exist. And some try to work to be exactly like those people. But maybe they just weren’t meant to be shaped like that.
A rhino can still be a beautiful rhino, it does not have to be a unicorn.

This is the perfect picture to show anyone that’s afraid of recovery because of weight gain. Honestly, look at Demi.
She gained weight and recovered, so what?
She’s glowing, she looks feminine, she looks 1000x more confident and she just looks more… alive.
Recovery is worth it.
She looks alive.
