Sometimes I scroll through the “pinup” or “vintage” tag and there are practically no women of color. Esp in the vintage magazine photos and the like. It’s almost as if women of color didn’t exist back then, and we all know that isn’t the case.
Currently putting together a spam of pinup women of color. Let’s dead this myth.
you don’t have to be ugly to think someone else is beautiful.
putting yourself down trying to give someone else a compliment, isn’t a compliment.
love yourself. love the beauty you see around you. you can see beauty and you can be beautiful too. open your standards of beauty to include yourself. you are beautiful too.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you you’re weird, unless they do so with a genuine smile on their face and a lot of fondness in their voice, as in you’re so different from anyone else I know and sometimes that makes it difficult for me to understand and handle you, but I wouldn’t change you for the whole world.
