Kiss my Fat Ass.

11 April 2011

Usually I’m not so crass, but Tyra has inspired me.  In fact, her empowering message to all women makes me tear up.  The media has us women thinking that we should try to look like celebrities or Victoria’s Secret models when in reality… we can’t, without a superhuman amount of willpower, hours to spend at the gym, and a personal trainer/chef.   Maybe this is the Smithie talking in me, but I yearn for a time when women’s bodies are not public property.

Does anyone else feel pressure to try to constantly improve themselves?  I always do, and frankly, I always have.  As a healthy, intelligent girl of eighteen, I find my obsession with my outward appearance a little more than disheartening.  And I blame society.
