We watched the Golden Globes at my sister's house. I love me some Angelina (here's my letter to her) but if one more person raves about her dress or how great she looked, I am going to scream at them. Or maybe junk punch them.
LOOK AT THOSE SKELETON ARMS. That is a person who is not eating. I've been very open here talking about how I used to have anorexia, and those arms? She is sick, people. I literally wanted to puke when she presented her award because you could see the bones inside her elbow.
But she was not the only offender of the night. Modern Family is one of my favorite shows but seriously, someone needs to get Julie Bowen some help. She is literally wasting away in front of our eyes, skinnier every week.
And do not get me started on the plastic surgery. So many faces were jacked up this year. Michelle Pfeiffer. Madonna. Even Helen Mirren appeared to have a facelift since the last awards shows.
What really really really makes me angry is how we, as a culture, worship this. Is this what we want for our daughters? Is this what we want to consider normal?
I sure as hell DO NOT want my sons to think the above photos are attractive. I want them to look at those photos and worry. I want them to see those women and get them help. I want them to think that women can age gracefully without having to go under the knife. I want them to think that HEALTHY is beautiful.
Who's with me?
