Watch the old 1970’s films, and unconsciously you make a subtle observation. Come in the 21st century, and it’s more than apparent. Industries earning in billions, the rise of movements and consciences in people alike. Let’s face it: The standard of beauty for women is changing, and in my personal opinion it is taking for the worse. When you watch T.V, the chances are that you might have come across beauty commercials. T.V’s and the internet have profoundly influenced the perception of what beauty is. I fear that the generation succeeding me would accept skinny, glossy, mal-nutrition looking girls as the “new awesome” or “beauty”. I rather hope with all my heart that humanity doesn’t fall into such an incredible fallacy.
But we can stop this. By understanding that beauty is not perfection, it is more than that. Beauty is in simplicity, not over-saturation, in subtleness and not in excessive refinement.
I wonder if the girls and women come out of this gridlock, many industries would go bankrupt that feed on this illusive insecurity of the females. And we men must also spark the fire, for we too are responsible for millions of girls and women “trying to alter themselves for beautification” and accept and love them, just the way they are.
