that mother is being ignorant and selfish. i say who give a **** about what she thinks. you do you and be beautiful the way you are, however it is you want to be or express yourself <3
no mother has the right to put her own sense of importance over her child's sense of self-integrity. Beauty is not externally sourced. AT ALL. Granted, externals can be aesthetic and also enhanced, but there is nothing inherently humiliating about NOT choosing to fake the externals. If she feels there is, she needs to get therapy and not put that artificial shame on her child. Regardless of talents.
