I Will Never Be The Pretty Girl

This article makes me so mad.

Despi is boxing “pretty girls” to being just pretty. As though they aren’t capable of being “the smart girl, the passionate girl, the go-getter girl, the happy girl, the smiling face, the bright-eyed, the brave, and the beautiful”, too.

She’s right that being pretty isn’t everything. But she forgets one very important thing: we are all pretty, but no one is just pretty.

I sent her a message on Facebook expressing my gratitude for expressing how the common understanding of “pretty” should be redefined as well as my disappointment for her lack of sensitivity.
