  1. Good questions, Raivenne. I think we need to behold our own beauty and forget what other people are beholding! 🙂 Thanks for joining in today.

  2. Depends on what you define beauty to be…sometimes with all the plastic changes and fake stuff, one still doesn’t feel beautiful inside and out.

  3. Ah, beauty standards today are anything but natural and it’s heartbreaking. Representation is so important and all we see is fake. There’s nothing wrong with getting work done, what’s wrong is plastic surgery is a standard. And media shit’s on those with natural features.

  4. I so like this. I always used to wonder why some African-Americans would process their hair when it its natural state, it was so beautiful. I think of Angela Davis on this. All the various skin tones from ivory to purple-black. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but then, maybe it isn’t. Maybe what they see frightens them.

  5. I do think it sad that our physical attributes have become an item of fashion.
    I only wore make-up in my teens and then decided to be me, the natural me and if the menfolk didn’t like me as I was, then I wasn’t interested in them either.
    I have often wondered why some folk who are subtlety ‘racist’ try to get as brown as possible… we are a peculiar species…
    Kind regards
