Altered by imperfection by ToastedGhost

A few years ago I started a group on RB called “Altered by Design”
The group grew so large I asked for help and new co-hosts joined.
Great I thought since life was hectic I took a back seat for a little while knowing my child was in good hands. But then the hands demanded I took a more active role, I explained my situation and then said I could not take a back seat its all or nothing…
yes you guessed it I gave my child away… but then that’s another story.

Inspiration for this piece derives from the seemingly constant obsession for women to believe the only way they can become beautiful is to glue on additions… false nails, crystals on their toes, trim beyond belief eyebrows etc
Wake up ladies and see your beauty does not lie within a beauty parlor!

    That’s really nice to hear coming from a man. I hate the pressure out there to conform to all those things because we’re told, by other women, no less, that these things are necessary to attract a man or to feel good about yourself. I won’t do it. I think its inner beauty that is the most valuable. Outer beauty only lasts so long and it can be flawed by ugliness on the inside. (Just my humble opinion) lol Nice image and I’m sorry to hear about your difficulties with your group. I can relate.

    Boy how our opinion of each other would change.
    The media and its dogs placate us make us transform into their image, it is insane.
    Thank you for your comments

    I agree. the media really does play head games with our self images . No wonder there are so many women out there with eating disorders and depression…..
