Preference is a coward's word for beauty. It is an ugly shield against criticism, as if we had a choice. Beauty is an asshole. It digs under our skin and treats our itching like an inconvenience. It is an entitled bully, an unwelcome houseguest. We don't choose what we find beautiful. Most of the time it's inconvenient, irrational, and inexplicable. But when beauty walks in, punches you in the stomach, and calls you her bitch, don't dare call it a preference.
