Duty-bound to inform you all that the Kateblouse is indeed lucky. And it feels like wearing angel kisses. And it looks pretty damn hot. And I have magical actress powers in it. The end.
The reading comprehension and overall common sense on this website is piss poor.
how dare you say we piss on the poor
My agent submitted me for 3 projects today. One of the characters is named Katherine. The other 2 are named Jane. YUSSSSS! I love a good Star Trek coincidence!
It’s always a good day when Mulder and Scully break the internet.
there is nothing romantic about
- not knowing you’re beautiful
- loving someone until they learn to love themselves
please stop romanticizing low self esteem.
it’s one thing to love a person who happens to have low self esteem
it’s another thing to frame low self esteem as a desirable trait.
I spent my entire childhood being trained to not to be arrogant or vain and to be humble and unassuming (read: insecure) because it was the good way to be. I started out with the ability to see myself realistically—good, not-so-good, or somewhere in between and I accepted it because it was me. But that ability was systematically beaten out of me through years of calculated shaming—by patriarchal men who saw a confident girl and feared the powerful woman she’d grow up to become, by the media who emphasized any negative trait that could sell me something, and most of all by insecure women who were so miserable and hopeless, all they could manage to do was drag other women and girls down with them.
The lasting result has been that I honestly cannot see anything positive about my appearance. If I think something nice about the way I look, I feel actively ashamed for seeing it. If I get a compliment, I cannot accept it. Even if I’m saying, “thank you,” I’m actually physically fighting the urge to cringe. I have a compulsion to strive to be beautiful and the only thing I’m capable of feeling is hideous. When you teach young girls about “the way things are”, you’re not teaching them a valuable life lesson. What you’re really doing is coercing them to conform to a culture that promotes compulsive mental and emotional self-harm. STOP IT.
