Nah bro, I like to be able to scratch my nose if I need to.
Why can’t I seem to master the art of pointing and clicking?
Like…. it’s not hard. But I seem to struggle.
I have seen the original comic, I’m not sure where it is, but I am a little sad that someone took something that was a personal work of art and expression and turned into an attack. There was nothing wrong with the original message. There are right ways and wrong ways about inciting a debate. Taking a very personal artwork and manipulating it with satire lacks a whole lot of tact.
That being said,
I am getting pretty tired of people playing the blaming game when it come’s to the esteem issues of women, ‘ugh, men, society, the media!’. The funny thing is, the ideas surrounding ‘ideal beauty’ change every decade, yet women have never been happy. The body image issues I face now are different to what they were 5 years ago, and will change 5 years from now. Moral of the story is: stop blaming the rest of the world for your feelings. These problems weren’t cause by ‘male society’, they were caused by, you know, ALL OF SOCIETY, and as a member of society you have just as must responsibility in shaping the world as the person next to you. If you’re waiting for the world to accommodate for you, you’re going to be waiting a damn long time, if you want to change the supply, you have to change the demand. There’s no use sitting around being sad about the media only showing a single body type because 1; that’s what they’ve always done, and 2; IT. WORKS.
It just gets me frustrated that people blame an industry they don’t even understand for their problems. There’s always going to be an ‘ideal’ whether you like it or not, the question is, how are you going to respond to it?
Looking for thoughtful, intellectual reading? Me either.
