Talking about advertising this week and seeing a few examples of how both men and women are portrayed in the media got me to thinking. If I'm not 5' 9" and and 105 lbs, I should be hitting the gym... hard. I mean, I'm 5' 3 AND 1/2", so what's a girl, nay, a woman to do about that? I can go to the gym, all day, everyday and it's not going to make me any taller. I'm stuck with what I got, so I might as well flaunt it, right? (Just joshin').
Anyway, the point is, we're all different shapes and sizes for a reason. If we were all 5' 9" and super skinny, what fun would that be? It's a shame that the media is so focused on and obsessed with using ONLY beautiful, lean, tall people. It's not realistic and it gets a little boring if you ask me.
Both my mom and sister are super skinny; I'm talking, it would be really hard for them to gain any weight. But, they don't look too skinny, they look good. I did not inherit the same body type as they have. I have more of an athletic build, which is fine. I don't care. I would totally take being good at sports over a super skinny body. I may not look as lean or whatever as them, but that doesn't mean I have no "skillz".
I think it's ludicrous how everyone in the media looks so perfect. It makes me want to puke. Let's change it! Change! Change! Change!
