2) Because Even If You Don’t Believe #1, You Don’t Owe Us Beauty!


Let’s say, theoretically, that I’m wrong: Your body is not beautiful. It’s ugly, it’s misshapen, it is not, in any way, “summertime fine.” Well, you should wear a bikini anyway. You don’t owe anyone perfection or thinness or beauty. (Not that those three qualities are synonymous, anyway.) You don’t owe it to yourself. You don’t need to be striving or struggling or working towards some elusive, prescribed perfection, either. You can just be yourself and not have to hide. No piece of clothing is reserved for people possessing what Us Weekly deems a perfect body.
