If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and be that, then I’m not a role model. But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model, yeah.

There are more than 7.046 billion people in the world and I wonder how it is possible that so many feel lonely. Loneliness is just another point of view, it is almost like an illusion caused by our minds to keep us suffering. Look around, dear soul, and know that if you are feeling lonely, it is because you are only relating with yourself and your mind, not with yourself and others.

The word “flattering” gets thrown around so often in the fashion world, it’s barely held onto its meaning. Literally, when something is flattering, it just means it’s pleasing. But pleasing to whom? When I read most magazine style tips, “flattering” seems to indicate pleasing to other people. “This dress flatters a fuller frame because of its vertical stripes” – what if I don’t like vertical stripes? What if I like horizontal stripes? Is it still flattering? I no longer subscribe to the notion that to be stylish I must appeal to the pleasures of others. This is especially important considering that certain demographics (ie. plus sizes) are given much stricter and limiting options for what is “flattering” on them. It seems wildly unfair to dictate what is pleasing on another person’s body, especially when it is clear that ” flattering” is just a code-word for “thinner.”
