Two days ago, a girl who lives on the second floor of my building was talking smack about me to her boyfriend and I overheard her say….“She’s NOT even that cute!”
Which means, of course, that on some level, she thinks I’m kinda cute. I mean, who can blame her?
And then I thought – seriously….I am sick and tired of people fucking deciding if I’m cute enough or this enough or that enough….
and I bet you are, too.
I thought maybe one, maybe five people would respond.
Within 24 hours, I had RT’ed over 400 people’s photos from 32 different countries.
And it was the best feeling in the whole world to see pictures that people took of themselves with the #cuteasfuck tag next to it.
There was power in it.
Here’s a random few I screengrabbed – but you should really go check out the #cuteasfuck on Twitter. Because wow. The coolest crew of amazing, beautiful people ever from all over the world.
When you discover the #cuteasfuck tag, you’ll see all people from all over the world – beautiful and different.
Fuck trying to be the same – it doesn’t make us more beautiful, it makes us boring.
Every single person that tweeted, stood strong in their own unique beautiful selves.
Those people are my heroes.
When most of the world wants to tear us apart, and our consumer culture feeds off finding things wrong with us so we can buy products to “fix” ourselves, declaring our own selves “cute as fuck” is the most powerful thing of all.
The next time someone comments on your appearance, you let them know you’re cute as fuck.
Join our Revolution, tweet pictures of yourself with the #cuteasfuck tag to me on twitter and to the world.
