Hey, Beautiful

Hey, I'm Allison! I write a blog called Hey, Beautiful that promotes a positive body image and healthy lifestyle for women. I need your help to write a new definition of beautiful: natural, comfortable, and healthy. Together we can change society's model of perfection and help girls and women live healthier lives!

I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

No, the answer to dismantling unrealistic beauty standards is not as simple as saying “everyone is beautiful,” and it’s not as simple as saying “beauty is frivolous and unimportant.” The answer is empowering individual women to self-define and self-govern. To stop imposing upon one another any ruler, new or old, with which we are allowed to measure ourselves.

Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.
