Beauty

Leave a comment

In class, we started talking about how women are basically sex objects in our culture. How everything that is trying to be sold has a “sexy” woman along with it, whether it’s food, clothes, or electronics. Even though some women say they do not like being a sex object, they tend to get caught up in some of the “sexy” trends that happen in our culture. Trends like a big butt, big boobs, skinny waist but big everything else, or more revealing clothing. Woman may think they are just making themselves happy or they feel pretty, but what they don’t notice is that they are becoming apart of a trend that America thinks is beautiful. Women, little girls, and teens need to realize that they are beautiful just the way they are. They do not need a trend to define their beauty. The definition of sexy should change. It shouldn’t be big butts and big boobs, it should be being comfortable in your own skin. It should be confidence. Women shouldn’t have to feel like they have to be sexy all the time to get acceptance from men and society.

I just think that a lot of things about beauty and exploiting women should change.
