    Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

    Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
    and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
    may set her free.
    Teach her to fight her way out,
    to consume books and spit knowledge
    to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
    and nothing more.

    Teach her to love her body
    not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
    as a defined worth
    she shall be immeasurable
    she shall be more than this.

    Do not let her break herself down
    when the boy in kindergarden hits her
    because he likes her.
    What are you really teaching her?
    Pain and love are not synonymous
    neither are pretty and perfection.

    Teach her to be kind
    to be harsh
    to be demure
    to be wild
    to be sensitive
    to be thick-skinned

    But good god,

    Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

    — (idiom) Only the French would have such a way to describe beauty. A wonderful slang expression, it literally means “pretty and ugly” but describes the type of feminine beauty that is human, and not manufactured by plastic surgeons. It’s a kind of fascinating quirkiness implying charisma, a face you want to keep looking at, even if  you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.  (via magic-starlight)
