friendly reminder that ‘plumpynuts’ is a fashion brand that exists
"there is absolutely no creative idea i have conceived that is so important that it needs to be manifested as physical form that occupies space"

I refuse to believe that Pharrell’s new “THINK OTHER” collaboration with Uniqlo is anything but an elaborate joke aimed at capitalism or something

“Beauty isn’t a fucking game. It’s a form of embodied cultural capital held by those with privilege. Objective beauty is the purest, most distilled form of the dominant aesthetic of the ruling class. As a social asset, it’s powerful stuff. The world says yes to beautiful people in a million little ways it otherwise wouldn’t. Doors just open, literally and figuratively.
Beauty privilege is very real. None of us are imagining it, and if we aren’t born genetic lottery winners, our only option is to compensate with style, grace, and charm. Of course, none of that shit comes cheap. That’s kind of the whole point. It’s all meant to be aspirational and exclusionary. We’re supposed to feel depressed by our skin, agitated by our bodies, and anxious about our invisibility. That’s the insidious subtlety of social control.”
