It’s All Relative

previous post: Gimme A Break



  1. LARP?

  2. This whole fat vs. skinny debate is ridiculous whenever it pops up. I don’t quite understand it. The media seems to go out of their way to point out when a celebrity is gaining weight, even when it does NOTHING to their overall appearance. We’re being constantly bombarded with images, men and women, of how we SHOULD look. Hell, the standard of beauty has always been subject to change. There’s hardly a standard, the media promotes an idea that may be POPULAR with the masses right now, but it’s hardly a standard of anything. I recall a magazine (sorry for not remembering the name) that did a photo shoot with more full-figured women. The modeling industry balked at it, but their readers were very impressed as they were sick of seeing the industry norm.

    It may seem like the current standard is what everyone wants, but the media is only a very vocal minority. I like a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin. I like a woman who doesn’t need to worry about her appearance so much, more substance than style. Granted it’s as much of a problem to care too little. I don’t know what the fuss is about. People come in many forms, that’s what makes the world so interesting. There’s no one way people should be, I only care that they’re comfortable with how they are. And if they aren’t, I hope they change on their own terms.

    I apologize for the rant, I know that’s BritishHobo’s thing. I just have certain… triggers.

  3. @Soup, you’re on the right track, minus the actual LARP.

  4. Soup, all jokes aside, put me in your plane ride scenario and I’ll say right now that you would not want to sleep, and I wouldn’t be crying foul of your attentions.

  5. @93 Pouty_Lips I felt the same way, so thank you very much #94 Ben.

    And Soup, like you said, if Anna’s ever read any of your other Lamebook comments she’d know you don’t discriminate. I love an equal opportinity offender 🙂
