Gah just did deep dive on Sara Peterson blog! So good!!!!! Can’t wait to read her book. Momfluencing is just so maddening. It’s amazing that we have laws on false advertising yet influencers don’t fall under those rules? I truly feel sad for girls growing up with this content, expecting motherhood to be like a perfect insta dream.

FLAwleSS - YIKeS! What I see is you have uncovered another jail with fuzzy pink bars. The bars just change colors and shapes to distract, deter from the real work that women are meant to do. Thank you Jessica - our fearless SCOUT and leader of the glittery evil.

LYRICS

When you dive so low

Chasing the Status Quo

It's a losing race

and it only awards you with a Jane doe Face

You see

The mainstream boutique

is a thief of your mystic

it will always interfere

With what you hold most dear

And that is YOU

Glamour Puss

To thy own self be true

To they own self be true

If you want to be new

You've got to pull away from the glowing avenue

Where the MASS appeal

Is spewing it's vile spiel

Glamour, Glamour, Glamour Puss

Glamour

Glamour
