I use this debate every time that I’d hear people complain about Barbie and her body shape and it’s effects on girl. I never understood why people made a big deal out of it, it was just a doll - why would we blame a doll for unreal body expectations who could be any thing she wanted. A doll is a doll, not reality. I’d blame media and their UNREALISTIC expectations for us, before I’d blame a doll.
Yesterday my friend and I were walking out of Forever 21 and the wind blew my skirt up a little. I had shorts on underneath (for this very reason) but two guys in a parked car saw it happen and yelled at me to lift it more, I yelled back, “fuck you!” and they laughed. So I took my pocket knife out of my bag and said, “I will slash your fucking tires” and they did not laugh
have u ever had a depersonalization moment when you look at yourself in the mirror and think wow this person is me and i have this body and this life and everything feels so strange why am i me and not someone else
