I have made it right in the nick of time. It’s still November 5th. I have finally done something nice, and have time to sit down and write about it!
I’m at a work event in Orlando right now and my co-worked had to give a talk to a bunch of women bloggers. She was awesome! I truly admire people who can speak in front of a large crowd and seem so confident, so natural. So I shared this with her – I told her what a great job she did! And meant it.
I also defended Lea Michele, Rachel from Glee – which, I’m not gonna lie, I think is pretttty nice. In a conversation about Glee, a woman said she thought Lea Michelle was unattractive. I very nicely said I disagreed and how much she reminded me of Barbara Streisand. This woman said Babs was unattractive as well. She basically said they both had big noses and needed plastic surgery to fix them. Again, I disagreed. I defended one of my favorite Gleeks with pride. I friggin love that show and I don’t care what Lea Michele looks like (although I do think she is very attractive) she has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard, which that in itself, makes her beautiful to me.
That being said, it’s totally fine to have your own opinions! You may think this person or that person is unattractive and I think they’re the most attractive person in the world and vice versa. That’s totally acceptable. I just think women need to be cheerleaders for one another instead of ripping one another apart. Not everyone needs plastic surgery to be beautiful. Not everyone needs to look exactly the same. There isn’t a specific mold of what ‘beautiful’ is. Quirkiness, uniqueness, different personality traits, different bodies, talents – these are all things that make someone beautiful. It’s not all on the outside.
