Beauty: one of my favorite topics.
It never ceases to amaze me how people interpret beauty standards. I came across this article from Marie Claire today and thought I would share it with you all. There is a new campaign called #StopTheBeautyMadness that is geared towards in-your-face ads that force people to address the unrealistic and often harmful views that people have towards others, in particular women. And how we are conditioned from a young age to think of ourselves in a certain light and told that beauty is worth more than brains in the world.
Along those same lines but perhaps in a less serious tone are two videos from my much-loved source: Buzzfeed. The first is one that gives the views on men on women and the second one gives the female perspective on men. It’s interesting to see what they agree and disagree on and how each sees the opposite sex. And then there is this one which has some facts based on real life surveys of men that might surprise you.
Men and women are both worth more than society perceives them to be and neither should have to live up to unnatural standards. From being thin to varying body types, and views on marriage to bedroom activities, we should stop putting labels on people and trying to fit everyone into a specific box or ideal.
