Pardon me while I rant…or don’t. I’m mad as hell and don’t want to hear this poison anymore. And you shouldn’t either.
The recent news and commentary about Rene Zellweger’s “transformation” has been hot and heavy.
The media seems surprised, disillusioned and downright horrified by her plastic surgery. Most of the discussions I’ve seen on social media express the same or worse.
Why, in this youth obsessed society are we surprised when a woman has plastic surgery? A woman in the entertainment field, no less. Seriously people!
Which has me wondering…
Why are women bashing each other? Why are we so critical of each other? Why do we criticize women who don’t conform to our standards?
Does it stem from our own insecurity or an anger that someone seems to have “broken” the unspoken rules?
Why do women criticize women…
~ who choose to color their gray hair…and those who don’t.
~ who choose to have cosmetic work done…and those who don’t.
~ who choose to date younger men and those who don’t.
~ who choose to choose to go makeup free and those who don’t.
~ who choose to maintain a svelte figure and those who don’t.
~ who choose to dress eccentrically and those who don’t.
Why do the women who choose to gray naturally, feel superior to women who choose to cover their gray hair! This one astounds me.
Why do we put down, ridicule and make fun, at the expense of other women?
I remember how prevalent female bashing was during high school. Perhaps you got off easy. In my high school, the girls were downright vicious.
Why haven’t we gotten past that? Why can’t we cut each other slack?
Is the competition so tough or are we so insecure that we need to align ourselves with one group against another to feel strong? For validation.
Gay bashing is abhorrent. Racial bashing is disgusting. Body weight bashing is totally unacceptable. And yet women bashing, is alive and thriving. It seems like the bashing of older women is the worst.
It seems to me that it’s our lives, our bodies and our choice!
