Beauty As A Commodity
Because we all are! Capitalist society only creates standards for almost everything. Well, why not? It has to attach a particular value and cost to everything in order to gain profit, and that includes our very notions of what's good, beautiful etc. Ironically, there are lots of things that could never be standardized like an object, beauty for example. So I say I am beautiful and I know it because I know who I am and where I am. I don't confuse myself with others and vice-versa. I won't lie either, denying the fact that there are lots of things I want to change in myself (like I wish my thighs are slimmer haha and my skin is blemish-free). There are lots but that doesn't change the fact that I believe I am beautiful. Maybe I just have to be contented one way or another.
