WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE WOMEN ARE OFTEN PORTRAYED AS
SEXUAL OBJECTS. WE HAVE NOT ONLY LEARNT TO REDUCE A
WOMAN'S BODY TO ITS ATTRACTIVENESS, WE HAVE TAUGHT
WOMEN TO LOOK AT THEIR OWN BODY THAT WAY.

I TOO FIND MYSELF POINTING OUT THE PARTS OF MY BODY THAT
DO NOT FULFILL MAINSTREAM BEAUTY STANDARDS. HIDING
WHATEVER IMPERFECTIONS I HAVE FOUND. I FIND MYSELF
PRETENDING TO BE CONFIDENT, BECAUSE THAT TOO IS
CONSIDERED TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE. CONSTANTLY ADAPTING
THE WAY I LOOK TO WHAT I THINK OTHERS WOULD WANT ME TO
LOOK LIKE.

FEELING ASHAMED AND UNWORTHY, WHEN THE MOMENT
COMES THAT I REALIZE I AM NOR EVER WILL BE AS PERFECT AS
AN OBJECT. ISN’T THAT RIDICULOUS? I AM NOT AN OBJECT.

AM I?
