Message to my children

© 20 March 2018 Marthijn Uittenbogaard

Hello kids out there. You know you are beautiful, don't you? Not only cute. More than that. Much more. And not only the girls are hot, the boys are too. In fact they are the hottest, the cutest, the best.

A beautiful flower. In time, the flower will wilt. You cannot capture beauty forever. Things that are forever are by definition not that beautiful: those things are not art. Well, a song maybe. An old song, the same as when it was recorded: it still can be very beautiful. Can you capture the beauty of a human being? We can try with photographs or with motion pictures. The problem is that beauty changes. What we find beautiful today, maybe is not beautiful anymore tomorrow. Is Marilyn Monroe still as beautiful as she was when her pictures were taken? No, she is not. But it's the best we've got to capture beauty.

Youth has always been beautiful. An old man or woman is close to dying. We don't find that very attractive. Some people do, but most people don't. We associate old with death and brittle bones. That's why we usually don't see erotic beauty in old people. (Maybe we should, because right now in our culture, the attractiveness is still based on a long life together.) We see understanding, wisdom, suffering, silence in the old. That is in a way beauty, but not the horny type.

Children, you are beautiful. And sexy. With sexy clothes you are hot. Without clothes you are hot. Don't feel ashamed of your body. You are not allowed to show your beauty in today's society. No child and youth nudity and especially no soft- or hardcore sex allowed on Youtube, not on Facebook. But fuck that. It's your body. If you want to show it: go ahead. It's liberating, it's freedom. And sometimes it's even love. Love yourself. Love others too, anybody you like (brown, yellow or white / young or old / brothers or sisters / one person or many at the same time). Fuck the moral police. With sexual freedom will come much more freedom. Freedom to choose where and with who you want to live. What you want to do, not when you're eighteen, but now.

Fuck the system. Be free.

Love you.
