TNOWTFG - Chapter 1

The first chapter is titled "What in the world is body love, and why does is matter?" One of the important focuses is on the principle of beautiful vs pretty.

Beauty is all around us. Beauty is "ubiquitous, inherent, and found in all of us." You may not realize it because of your life experiences, but you're godsdamn beautiful. We all are. You are beautiful. Let me repeat that one more time:


YOU

ARE

FUCKING

BEAUTIFUL!

Pretty on the other hand is a construct of society based around physical attributes. Pretty was created to divide is. Pretty was created to fuel industry. Pretty was created to devalue and objectify women.

It is very important to focus on body positivity and the truth that everyone is beautiful.When we are happy we're more productive. We build healthy relationships. We live to the fullest. Can you imagine a world in which everyone did that.

I can.

And it's fucking glorious.
