Keywords: american literature


Women, specifically young women, seem to think they're ugly. And most, if not all, have had fantasies of extreme measures to 'change' themselves, like unzipping their faces. This piece aims to dissect these fantasies and the way young women pull apart their bodies, having such a distorted view of their appearences that they end up turning themselves into monsters.
