When my daughter first showed signs of hating herself, I got out photoshop. We went and found an image of her choosing, of a woman. I spent the next two hours showing her just how easy it was to alter this woman. I changed her hair, whitened her teeth, made her thinner. I erased her blemishes and even made her taller while my daughter sat there aghast. At the end of it she loudly said - ” THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
I told her that damn near every image she saw of people in magazines, on television, etc, was altered like this, and that she should never compare herself to that, because even supermodels don’t look like supermodels.
I wish I could do that for every child. I wish it was a mandatory class in school.
My math teacher showed us this during class a few days ago. So much respect for her. <3 Favorite teacher of the year.
things that shouldn’t be as difficult as they are:
- dealing with spiders
- buying bras in the right size
- purchasing pads or tampons without getting embarrassed
- devouring the souls of my enemies
- getting out of bed in the morning
- ordering food over the phone
- using public transport
wow one of those was really unexpected
yeah devouring the souls of my enemies is really easy
Rowing isn’t even hard
Its such a waste of time
It isn’t even a sport
Ok you have 5 strokes to get the fuck away from me
