I'm getting really, REALLY tired of this.

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

So this morning I turn on the TV and I see...

"This is the only look that counts as beautiful. Unless you look THIS way, you're ugly and unworthy."

No, wait. "You skinny stick. That's gross, you look like a skeleton. Go eat a cheeseburger." Only women who look like this are beautiful and worthy.

No, wait. "You fat cow. Stop horking all the icecream and get off your ass." Only this look is beautiful and worthy.

No, wait. "Who are you to say anything at all about fitness or healthy lifestyles? Look at all that flab. How much can you bench? That's ALL?! Wimp. Go hide under your bed and never show your face in public again." Only women who are this fit, beautiful, and worthy are allowed to speak in public.

No, wait. "You look like a man with all your rippling manscles. Go eat a cheeseburger."

Really? Every woman in every picture is absolutely beautiful. It takes all sorts to make the world a vibrant, varied place. The outward appearance of a person doesn't define their worth, or beauty, or soul. Those are deeper factors than surface decoration.

Which is why I have decided that This:

Is beautiful and worthy.
