does it bother anyone else that so many songs about female beauty celebrate women not knowing that they’re beautiful? they make it sound like waking up in the morning and thinking “i am not happy with my physical appearance” is better than “i am pleased with my physical appearance” or even “i don’t really think about my physical appearance”…like girls who need to be validated are inherently more attractive than those who feel they validate themselves. now, most agree that being humble is better than being arrogant, but insecurity is not the same as humility. there are people who are cripplingly insecure, and telling them that that is what makes them beautiful is SO DESTRUCTIVE - we should be telling them to love every part of themselves!
“you don’t know you’re beautiful, that’s what makes you beautiful”
…. H E L L TO THE N O.
accepting yourself despite imperfection, perceived flaws and weaknesses whether physical or mental? recognizing your own beauty and valuing yourself for it? it takes courage, determination, hope and love. THAT is what makes you beautiful.
I have no desire to go topless anywhere, but I thought this made good points about perspective, and about how female [identified?] bodies are considered inherently sexual even when nothing sexual is going on or implied.

*two hours later* i hate my life i should just cut out my uterus and throw it to the dogs
so i seem to share the popular opinion that that finale was largely disappointing but with some great moments. like all of davos’s moments.
but the real great moment for me was jaime and cersei’s reunion. when jaime stood in cersei’s doorway and said her name, his voice was so broken, and you could hear that he both wanted to shatter the stillness and collide again with the beauty that is his sister and the love of his life, and to run away (possible back to brienne…) because he’s not the man he was when he left, physically or mentally. you could immediately see in cersei’s face that all the hopes she had almost let go of rose to the surface and everything in her was completely paused, waiting in the moment before she turned her head…she was balanced on a precipice between despair and relief, and when she saw his face, that sigh that said i had almost resigned myself but couldn’t let go and here you are again, you came back to me. that was an incredible moment for me.
…then i wanted her to jump his bones but she didn’t but i mean you know. you can’t have it all.
