Alter-NOT-ive

Getting a little sick of things that bill themselves as “alternative” that stick to the same old young, skinny, white standard of beauty that the mainstream does. Fat people, dark people, old people, asymmetric people, presented as alluring and beautiful? That's alternative. Sticking a hundred and twenty-pound blonde model I to, I don't know, a hood and something with spikes is pretty much pandering to the standard with some slightly different icing on the same old cake.

I’m young, skinny, and white myself, and you may find me aesthetic, but I ain’t nobody’s “alternative” and I don’t pretend to be.
