Recommendation: Glitter Politic

Ashley Aron and Erin Majestic Legay recommend…

Glitter Politic is self-love blown open. Glitter is an external expression of a unique and multifaceted light that shines within each of us. Harnessing that light and directing it outwards is extremely challenging in a world that makes it so easy to hate ourselves and each other.

By embodying a politic of glitter, we accept and perpetuate the radical notion that there is enough room for all of us to shine. We believe that by nurturing an ethic of compassion, kindness, and bad-ass love for ourselves, we can create space in our communities where love is not a limited resource. With a glitter politic, we are banishing the normative, oppressive, patriarchal, capitalist, imperialist ideology that the world isn’t big enough for all of our beautiful bodies, ideas, and voices.

    HA!!!!! I l *LOVE* this!!!

    Let us be over-the-top in our love for others, overcoming sourness, bigotry and even evil with goodness! Jesus said this kind of response is radical and overpowering!

    Our genuine smiles and kind words in response to ridicule and contempt directed to us, give everyone something positive to think about, when we and others like us come to mind. (It works for me!!!) :-)
