    Back in the day, talent was talent and a person became a personality because of that talent. Talent was the precursor for fame and if the person wasn't particularly attractive, then that wasn't too much of a big deal. Consider Karen Carpenter or Dust Springfield... both iconic...

    T-shirt, Cargo Pants, And Uncombed Hair

    ...are sexy. No makeup, no accessories, nada. Glasses instead of contacts, and don't make me a sandwichh. Instead, go get the second controller, have a seat, and join me for some video games. Anybody like Minecraft?

    The Media Has A Lot To Answer For....

    Far too much emphasis is placed on how a woman looks. What about a womans brain? The things she can achieve? Looks fade and it's sad that there is so much pressure on women to look a certain way. I always think true beauty is seen in the way a person carries themselves and...

    Appearance Do Matters..... I Hate To Admit

    When I was in freshmen, I wasn't attractive nothing at all. Everyone almost thought I'm dude even through I wore the pretty clothes. I got a few bullies that they called me ugly girl or whatever it is. Last year, I was so determined to change everything basic on my appearance. I...

    beauty

    Gah, i hate how they can just roll out of bed and still look good, where as if a girl does that she is consdered lazy and a slob. most of us have to spend hours "fixing" ourselves in order to even get looked at by a guy. :/

    It Annoys Me

    I remember reading something in one of the "Post Secret" books that this one guy confessed he thought women who didn't put on make up were lazy.  That just kind of got to me.  I never wear make up.  I think the last time that I actually put...

    The key question is: Why thereĀ“s pressure on

    women to look good but not on men?

    There Is

    There is WAY too much pressure on women to look great all the time and fit a certain stereotype, but to be honest, I think recent times have imposed the same sort of pressure on men as well. Here's what I say: WHO CARES? I wasn't put on earth to please shallow people.

    "fairness Cremes"

    I've never quite understood the growing level of vanity in the society we're living in. May be consumerism is to be blamed for this along with worthless people who unfortunately end up as icons and role models for those with a weak self esteem. It's sad indeed that  we're...

    Insane Joke That's Not Funny,

     Our society keeps pushing this insane, ridiculous and extremely unhealthy idea of beauty on all of us and it's not what I want or how I feel I need to be. The more outside influence I have had the more confusing health becomes. I do not want to look like everyone else and...
