Pretty - fantastic

I saw this video posted for the second time today. It gave me goosebumps and raised a lump to my throat the first time a few months ago and I thought about re-posting it then. But didn't. Today I had to. I think this is one of the most outstanding pieces of writing I have had the fortune to hear read. It appeals to my inner 15 year old and the woman she became.


  1. whoa...powerful and well said. Thank you for sharing this. I came to your blog via Zoe's list of SSS participants. I'm marec61354 on Flickr and people just call me marec.

  2. That was amazing. I have goosebumps.

  3. Wow. Thank you for deciding to re-post it this time.

  4. Now, I am a christian anti feminist traditionalist. There, I said it. But I thought that poem ROCKED - so much so I posted it to my fb page.
    Just because I don't espouse feminism, doesn't mean I think mutilation in the name of pretty is OK.
    I have two daughters, and they are who they are. They are blessings, and bright polished cornerstones! Pretty? Gah!
    Thank you a million times, Affi'enia
