Oneal Walters writes poems about women's issues.
"Women must be sold like clothing to excel
my physical features enhanced will arouse desire.
Beauty is power!
My goal is to sell an attractive image
and my body is a canvas for designers.
This is the reason you idolize me.
Do you fear me?"
“I fear when you believe beauty is your only option,
in 2011 three women were awarded the Noble Peace Prize.
It’s not about women becoming a centerfold on King,
It’s not about women becoming overly aggressive,
nor can it be about women versus men.
She’s attractive and therefore valuable
cannot be step 1 in your ‘how-to manual.’
If you must be an object,
then also sell being independent
and being a contributor to the family,
and being a board member of the company.
If you must be an object then magnify ideas as well!”
