You don’t know you’re beautiful, that’s what makes you beautiful” a line from One Directions smash hit “What makes you beautiful”. At first listen this is a harmless, catchy lyric that we all shamelessly dance in our underwear to. But when you really think about it, this lyric is exactly what’s wrong with our society. Why is a lack of confidence considered beauty? Yes there is a line between confidence and cockiness but that doesn’t mean having the knowledge that you’re beautiful makes you less attractive. We need to stop teaching girls that hating who they are is tragically beautiful and that one day they’re going to meet someone who tells them “You don’t know you’re beautiful, that’s what makes you beautiful”. Fuck that. We need to teach people, you’re beautiful, you know you’re beautiful, and that’s what makes you beautiful.
