Self-love demands that we evoke our own gazes in a consumer-based culture producing patriarchal hetero-western-centric based gazes in mainstream global cultures. So, I ask you to reclaim your own gaze through a process of active consciousness. You must listen carefully and intuitively to your body excluding all these layers that the consumer culture imposes onto you, meaning all these indoctrinated commercial cravings masked as desires reflected as needs to consume and commodify enslaved bodies to fit the capitalist dogma of the labour-machine system. Needs, those we project towards others and let them command our existences. Needs that become cultural unspoken norms that kill organic corporeality.
