That's right, I want stretch marks on the beach, not covered up with makeup at the mall, and playing outside in the park on weekends. They're a sign that you've physically grown as a person, that you've matured into a woman, and sometimes that you've created life.
Plus, guys usually don't mind theirs. I see men with large stretch marks out shirtless all the time, and to tell the truth, though they're noticeable, they're also completely normal — even pretty cool looking. Also, remember: Anyone who says something derogatory about the stretch marks they see on another person is nothing but a hypocrite, because they probably have some themselves. I'm not suggesting you stop taking care of your skin and moisturizing to keep it looking nice, but I do think women are being encouraged to worry about something that's absolutely fine. Where do you stand on this?
