Aging Horribly or Just Unforgivably?

An 80 year old woman should get botox rather than age normally and naturally? “A little botox wouldn’t hurt” they say.

Actually it probably would. I don’t think sticking sharp things into your face is painless, then the time for healing from the whole thing, the risk of infection and having the procedure botched.

I really think aging naturally should be acceptable and graciously accepted (especially by the media)!

Most of the people in this article are just getting older. Other than naturally aging they look pretty much the same as they did in younger years. Some have gained weight, all have some wrinkles, marks, etc on their skin. Time changes us and cosmetic surgery isn’t a time machine. Ironic that in cases where actors have had plastic surgery they complain about that too. There is no winning because no one can look 16 forever.

To the entertainment media: Stop it! 

To the public: Stop buying it!

Yes, isn’t it shocking?!!! An 81 year old woman doesn’t look 20! Bridgette Bardot is alive and well.

Nude Urban Self Portraits

You are what you wear? Clothing is an accessory (unless it is for physical protection) but our culture has become used to everyone being clothed. Less for women, if they are young and physically fit. If this photographer were older and over weight, disabled, or in some way less physically appealing, would her self portraits be thought artistic or would people protest having them displayed at all? Although, people with disabilities may be humoured and pitied rather than bullied and rejected right away.

Society and culture are interesting. So changeable and yet so firmly entrenched at the time.

New York-based French photographer Erica Simone is the person behind Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen, which bloomed from an initial questioning about clothing and the importance of fashion in modern society. According to Simone, what we wear acts as a silent language allowing us to portray who we are or want to be.

The project’s slogan “Nothing Fits Like You”‬ (#thepowerofnaked) is a campaign about being comfortable with who you are as a person, with your body, your mind and your role in society. It’s about being free from the confinements of societal’s expectations and the media’s projections.

Simone added: “The point is not to be nude for shock value. I am simply an artist looking to humorously poke at some interesting thoughts about society and question who we are and embody as human beings inhabiting this home we call Earth. It’s now up to you to answer or raise these questions, as you like.”

Women are not Tomboys

Stuff like this bugs me!

Why give credit to males for something like this? Any girl or woman can be into sports and enjoy things which are cool (outside, far outside, from cosmetics, beauty routines and all that so called girlie stuff).

Why do we still have that tomboy attitude when it comes to women?

It’s really strange now that we are so accepting of transgenderism that we still expect women/ girls to be girly and call them something else if they’re not.

Not a tomboy, just ungirly.
