The pin-up age feels like the closest fat bodies have ever come to aligning with a mainstream beauty standard.
I like thinking that there's a community in places where people do winged eyeliner to feel accepted. I know for many it adds a boost of confidence. Or maybe they like to look like they might cut someone with wings so sharp!
Pin-up remains a way to claim our right to visibility, boldness and beauty in a culture that believes we should all but disappear.
