She had a sexy accent and long, curly hair. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who emailed me about my last post concerning depression. There is hardly a person alive who is not moved by the beauty of the perfectly formed child. They all consume the same media, they all believe the same propaganda, and they all think a woman should power fuck her way through her 20s while giving men hell. I will never forget that experience.
Going on the narcissistic trips with her, telling each other that we are utterly hot kittehs, and taking self obsessed pictures of ourselves - in a way this is saving my life. When we can take endless shots from endless angles, we start to discover dimensions of ourselves we never even knew were there.

The Dove company cynically appeals to the insecurities of fat and ugly women to sell soap and cream so profits can be diverted to shareholders, validating and encouraging the grotesque aesthetic.

It took Cindy Sherman hundreds of different costumes to interrogate all the different corners of herself; apps let us try out her lifetime of masquerade with just a few quick clicks. The apps all function in slightly different ways, but they all optimize both the process of taking a selfie and the post-production tinkering that happens before pressing send. And they were still the lucky ones, the ones with cameras. Going on the narcissistic trips with her, telling each other that we are utterly hot kittehs, and taking self obsessed pictures of ourselves - in a way this is saving my life. I commend you for taking your appearance seriously. She found out about my blog a day before I went to Iceland and cried on the phone. Atum was known as the start of the world and also the logical end of it; his name roughly translates to completion, a perfect cycle.
