Is strong the new pretty? Simply stated, no. Strong is not the new pretty. Strong and pretty are one in the same. Strength fills the void uncertainly brings. Notice the unmistakable masculine images the girls are being photographed in. Notice too that they’re not wearing anything that’s associated with girly things like tiaras and princess dresses. It is thru the filter of masculinity that the girls are gaining strength and acceptance. These girls are considered strong precisely because they’re not acting or playing like girls. Pretty does not have a gender and is boundless it its possibilities and expressions. That’s what makes it strong.
