I have a theory that there are mermaids and reverse mermaids.
We all have a little of both.
And I personally battle the message sent by the patriarchy loud and clear everyday to objectify my body and marginalise my value as a human because I am female.
The messages are constant, subtle, and sadistic, they better know one.
Am I a beautiful lady with All-Seeing eyes, a graceful figure and beautiful hair?
Or am I the reverse mermaid, an ugly fish head with legs and a vagina?
Mermaids are beautiful women on the surface and under the water, the cold blooded scale shimmer in the deep Waters of the psyche.
Representative of unusual Magic properties and master of hidden dark secret desires connected to the ancient sea serpent and snake goddess.
The primal origin of all religion and the core of what we as women can tap into as our ultimate and timeless power.
Then there are the reverse mermaids. Ladies who think themselves ugly because they believe the lies of the patriarchy, thinking on competitive and comparative terms of other ladies, and may have been abused or sexualised as children.
Out of insecurity, they don't understand that all women are manifestations of the Goddess.
They see themselves as an ugly fish head with legs in a vagina, and in order to feel attractive, will over-compensate using sex as a tool for barter or manipulation.
No matter how truly beautiful they are, they will always see the ugly fish head in the mirror. I have empathy for this part of myself and others.
