My good friend posted this on Facebook

And I don't know how I feel about it.

I'm kinda like...no...that's not...true...what?

But on the other hand, I'm also thinking "but I did have hella self-esteem issues until I started dating Prince Fluffybutt and he sort of put them at ease."

Yet I also feel like this could open a good dialogue about how women are conditioned to only think they're beautiful if a man says so.

And yet another part of me is all I'M BEAUTIFUL AND I DON'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK!

But I'm not going to say anything on Facebook cuz it's 1am and I'm too tired.

Thoughts?

Edit: ERMAHGERD SO MERNY CERRMENTS!

Ok, when I posted this last night it was 1am and I had just worked from 11am-11pm and could barely remember my own name, hence the lack of discussion in my post. You all honestly think I have nothing to say about this? Hell naw. I'm just tired.

And NOW I woke up hella late and have to run to work so I don't have time to respond to all of you, but I promise I will later tonight when I get home!

But really quickly - I wasn't trying to say I think this is ok cuz I can kind of associate with it. I don't think it's ok AT ALL. It's hetero-normative, misogynistic and just fucking stupid. My internal struggle lies with the fact that while all of this is true and I logically know that, emotionally I have felt this way in the past and still do sometimes. That is something I want to discuss more tonight when I get home from work. Assuming I don't go crazy (crazier) from now until then.
