So I have my first paper assignment...I am writing about the unrealistic expectations society has for women & thier appearance. As I have researched this topic more & more, it has begun to take its toll on me.
Did you know that Marilyn Monroe was a size 12? Fat, by todays standards....but one of the most beautiful and remembered women of her time. What happened? How did size 2 become the new goal?
Basically, I am stuck. I don't want to conform to these unrealistic, and to be honest absurd expectations...but I feel like if I don't I'll be "ugly." Whats a girl to do? How can a size 7, curvy girl feel good about herself when the media is projecting these images at her from every angle? For now I remain stuck...more to come when I come to a real conclusion. :)
