The following is my response to a comment on my Facebook page. I just wanted to share this as much as I can.
Well, I got on Facebook to reply to a comment that I saw late last night posted to one of my posted. It was the post with the photo of the woman and man with paper bags on their heads with the words slut and stud written on them. I cannot find this photo now. It appears to have been deleted. **GASP** Boobs were exposed in a completely innocuous way. I chose not to reply last night because it really irked me. For those of you who know me, you know how difficult it was for me to keep my mouth shut. Seriously.
Now to reply to a comment that pretty much said that the mainstream media is here to stay and control us. It asked how would we even know who was pretty or not, if not for the media telling us. It goes on in this manner.
My response, as best as I can mange without the exact comment to reply to:
First of all, how did the neanderthal know who was attractive or not? Did media exist then? Attraction is a chemical reaction within the brain that sends signals to the rest of the body. Plain and simple answer that I will not elaborate upon because, really, it isn't necessary.
Next, if we never question anything and accept everything at face value, how do we ever evolve as a species? We don't. If we all believed what the media told us, we would still live in the dark ages. It would be illegal for African Americans and Caucasians to interact on a equal level. Women would STILL NOT be able to vote. Homosexuality would be in the closet only or else be ostracized. These are positive changes in the world.
Now, lets look at the other side:
Women, and esp. young girls, are starving themselves, cutting themselves, hiding themselves, shamed and saddened, etc. all because they don't feel that they can live up to the so-called normal standard that the main stream media shoves in everyone's face daily. This is a fact. Now, if we don't try to change this attitude through activism, what are we to do? Sit back a let it be becausesupposedly that's just how it is? NO! That is the thinking of sheep who are either too lazy, too ignorant, or too brainwashed to motivate change and be proactive. I could continue to write about this, but I hope this little snippet of my opinion, and the facts as I understand them, is understood without the excess explanation.
When we sit idle, we become the sheep. We wait for the owner to come and toss us into the meat grinder. We have lost all sense of self and will become brainwashed robots.
I will not sit be and become a brainwashed idiot who cannot think for myself, and I don't expect anyone else to do so either.
With that, I will close this post.
Remember: LOVE IS ALL and WE ARE ONE.
