We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving. We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive are our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, ‘You can be anything,’ and we heard, ‘You have to be everything.’

Courtney Martin: Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters

We heard, ‘you have to be everything’….

Why are we afraid of imperfection? A TEDx speaker explores

TEDxDubai speaker Matt Hoyle is a photographer obsessed with flaws — the quirks, blights, and imperfections that inspire the masses to untag Facebook photos, Photoshop magazine covers, and always pose at the best angle.

In his talk, “Perfect imperfection,” he describes his fascination with presenting the subjects of his portraits as they really are — flawed, interesting, imperfect — rather than trying to obtain the perfect ideal of beauty that we search for when choosing our Facebook profile pictures.

His philosophy is best summed up in few words a subject of one of his photographs once told him:

I think people don’t accept imperfection that well. They gawk at it; they stare at it — because it’s curious to them.

It’s a shame because there’s so much beauty out there besides beauty.

Above, a selection of portraits from Matt’s jaw-droppingly beautiful series Winter Swimmers.

Heyyy Congress,

TEDx here. We noticed you’re having a wee bit of trouble working out this government shutdown snafu, so we thought, hey, since you’ve got extra time on your hands and we’re taking a lunch break, we should totally hang. Want to come watch talks with us? We picked some just for you!…

The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness”.

I’m not sure about these ingredients. I highly recommend spring water for it gives it an extra Je ne sais quoi versus using tap water, distilled water, mineral water, or purified water. It’s all debatable obvs… I’m on the fence. How about you? thoughts?

What are your top beauty tips?

Start out perfect and don’t change a thing. Always accentuate your best features by pointing at them. And conceal your flaws by sucker punching anyone who has the audacity to mention them.

Never too old to learn from the Muppets.

And this:

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.” - Miss Piggy
