Puts things in perspective…I would rather have breast implants than a year of college.
Not that I’d ever get breast implants though. If I did I’m pretty sure I’d suffocate myself…
…I have no respect for someone who would choose implants over education. Fuck.
I don’t do anything on the left… I would do EVERYTHING on the right
This makes me sick.
If someone wants to get breast implants, wear a push-up bra, buy lipstick, or wear fake nails, that doesn’t mean they’re shallow or stupid or don’t love their body.
And Slim-Fast? Really? God forbid someone would want to be healthy! Also, the money for breast implant surgery won’t get you a year of college tuition. Maybe at a tiny community college, but nothing more than that.
Personally, I’d rather buy a push-up bra than go canoeing, because I don’t like lakes. I’d also rather buy lipstick than make a long distance call, because I happen to have a cell phone.
Quit being so quick to judge people. :/
What happen to choices? What happen to women deciding what they want to do with their own body without judgment? How hypocritical is it to judge another woman because she chooses acrylic nails over a day at an amusement park? This is what pisses me off. Maybe a woman wants breast implants because it would improve their body issues or they want breasts to fit their body size?
Maybe someone wants a pair of designer jeans because god forbid they actually want it. I like my acrylic nails because I LIKE GETTING MY NAILS DONE. I do not need the media to tell me what my nails should look like.
And Slim-Fast? What’s wrong with Slim-Fast? Maybe some girls want to get in shape and lose a bit of weight. There’s nothing wrong with that.
If you’re going to preach the rights for women to do what they want with their own bodies, do not shame a woman for doing the opposite of what you do. An oppressive force can go both ways.
A lot of people seem to be missing the point entirely. If you think that focusing primarily on your physical appearance will make you happy I have news for you: You’ve probably been brainwashed into believing that. I’ve come to the conclusion that many people don’t stop to think about what it is they truly want as individuals. Since childhood the media has spoonfed them a self-destructive ideology so insidious that they don’t even question it’s validity as adults. “If I were rich, beautiful, owned XYZ I would be happy.”
If studies have shown time and time again that this is not true why do we repeat it like a mantra? Women in particular have what I call the ‘beauty burden’ foistered upon them by a society that has taken lookism to ridiculous extremes. Ask yourself if a metrosexual guy would forgo what an average woman does just to look his best. Chances are he would ‘have his cake and eat it too’.
FACT: The beauty industry is making a killing off of our insecurities, we are talking billions upon billions of dollars here. Is damaging your health and finances really worth it? I am not telling people to let themselves go but I do think that a lot of women desperately need to reorganize their priorities. The irony is that they would probably be far more satisfied with their life if they did.
