“We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.” -Marilyn Monroe
This is so true. Us women must embrace our gift of beauty, not hide it under ankle-length dresses! We are gifted with wonderful qualities that must not be suppressed underneath conservative values. We can all learn from Marilyn, especially you Arsinoe, for she learned to take advantage of her beauty (just like me).
Please enjoy a poem I wrote, inspired by the one and only Marilyn Monroe!
One cannot love but only kiss,
For we are far too lovely to miss;
Our beauty must be shared with all.
Women will stand strong and tall.
Men will come running our way
We convince them that we won’t stray.
For our love they will compete
But we always remain discrete.
We have loving hearts but wandering eyes;
We are who the weaker women despise.
We cannot help that we are adored
By many suitors; that’s our reward.
Of my many suitors, Clitandre is certainly the most flamboyant and best-dressed. His blonde wig is always trimmed to perfection, and his outfit always has ribbons and bows. Pictured is a typical outfit he would wear when trying to impress me; he tends to over-do it a tad. Although he isn’t my most prestigious suitor (even Alceste called him a fop), I need his influence on my side for my lawsuit is coming up.
Today one of my suitors, Alceste, asked me to escape to solitude with him. What a crazy idea! The thought! I am only twenty one, and the world SURELY has not seen enough of me yet. I am important to far to many people; I cannot simply abandon my fans….I mean friends. On top of all that, he proposed, as in asking for my hand in marriage. This, I could agree to, if it would make Alceste stop whining. He rejected (oh no) so I will just HAVE to find a way to live without him. So sad. Well, I’m off to meet with Philinte……or was it Acaste…..? Anywhoo, ta ta for now!
I found a new television show today called “The Bachelorette”. It’s about one woman surrounded by 25 men, all competing for her heart. Sound familiar? I absolutely LOVE this show! My favorite Bachelorette, Ashley Herbert, was the center of attention at all times. She always knew how to make a man do and say what she wanted. In order to be the Bachelorette, you must be charismatic, charming, outgoing, and sexy (unlike someone I know). I see it as a television portrayal of my own life, where millions of average people can see what it is like to live a day in the life of Celimene! Who doesn’t want 25 men fighting to get a chance to talk to you?
This is the man I idolize, William Shakespeare. He drives me to write the poems I write, and I aspire to write as well as him one day. I most enjoyed Shakespeare’s sonnet 130, because it is about how any woman could be loved regardless of how they look. It just so happens that my love, Celimene, is beautiful and intellegent.
I really do appreciate the flattery, but do not get your hopes up too high. How utterly unreasonable you are! Not that I couldn’t make the choice with ease, my heart has no conflicting sympathies; I know full well which one of you I favor, And you’d not see me hesitate or waver. But how can you expect me to reveal so cruelly and bluntly what I feel? I am much more subtle and kind, and cannot simply break the heart of a man who is present. You can continue loving me, that is for sure! Yet I cannot bear this foolish game of choice any longer.
Good grief. Imagine my pain when this commercial came on the television yesterday! I was already having an unpleasant time witnessing the confusing, violent, and immoral sport that is American football…I didn’t need to see this. Why do advertisers choose to promote this female image? Sexy, seductive, shameless…We ALL know what she is suggesting. Where are her values? What happened to waiting until marriage? Now for Valentines Day, all a guy has to do is get a girl flowers and he will receive such a precious reward? Sounds strangely like something one of my good friends would do… (you know who I’m talking about). Anyways, I must say I strongly disagree with this whole idea.
Oh Arsinoe! You mustn’t be so negative! Times are changing, and so are the people. If you want to be loved by Alceste, you will have to learn how to “go with the flow”. There was a point when your conservative ways were widely accepted, but our lifestyle is beginning to change; I see no cause to be a prude at twenty. You must act more charismatic, more seductive if you will, and then the man you want will come running! A transformation will surely catch Alceste’s eye. As a true friend, I will be happy to help you in this transition.
This is my best friend, Arsinoe, who is a wonderful, careful, kind woman. Unfortunately, I have been hearing awful things about her lately around the court. While I was out with some very distinguished friends of mine, the conversation took a sudden turn. They said that her prudery and bustling zeal appeared to have very slight appeal. Well I am here to set the record straight! My dear friend does NOT [find] sin where there is none to find or beat her maids and [cheat] them out of their pay. And there’s nothing wrong with viewing nudity in art [as] vicious. These rumors must be put to an end! Of course I do not agree with these ideas, but one must pay attention to criticism, Arsinoe. Don’t worry, I will keep you posted on all the false rumors that come my way.
