I remember when I was a little girl I always wanted to be pretty. I was told that black was a weird clothing choice, and proper ladies don’t wear fishnets or corsets. That long black skirts weren’t flattering, and I should really wear a pair of jeans from time to time. That my dresses should sport sunflowers and rays of sunshine instead of Victorian patterns and skulls. I was told to try a different color than black eyeliner and eyeshadow, and that I should wear blue contacts if I wanted to look pretty. I wanted to be my own pretty. I wanted people to look past the makeup and odd clothing and challenge them to ask me what kind of person I was. “I don’t want to be your dirty pretty” 🖤
