On the tyranny of self hate.

My girlfriend hates her body intensely, seeing it as grotesque and flabby and too tall and too square and too boyish. It’s none of those things. She hates it if I compliment it or tell her she’s not any of those things, because she has a “right to feel this way.” What can I do?

Yes, I suppose self hate and body issues are a natural born right to girls across this great nation, but so is it your duty as a good boyfriend — nay, a good American — to stand up for your own First Amendment rights and shout to the fucking rafters that she is not only beautiful in your eyes, but beautiful in every way a woman can be.

Stand up to the tyranny of self hate. Tell that girl she’s gorgeous.
