Mortal Sense of Beauty

Thank you Emma!


Wow, found this through rookie....you're an amazing , insightful writer! So many truths about our fantasies and how they are not created within a vacuum, but as a part of a larger social narrative. Awesome. Really.

Mortal Sense of Beauty

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Really great piece of writing! As a South Asian woman who grew up on that Disney princess diet, I could relate... when we compare ourselves to others in our environment and depictions in the media, it skews our beliefs on beauty and self-beauty and self-acceptance.

(I also agree that the last paragraph departs from the narrative... maybe if you've seen this years' two Snow White films you could include that experience and tie it in here?)

Mortal Sense of Beauty

I agree, Sapna--I'm actually working on a post right now re: Snow White and the Huntsman. I haven't seen the other Snow White movie with Julia Roberts but I probably will soon. Thanks for your comment and for reading!
