Be You

Yesterday Jennifer Aniston published a post on the Huffington Post called , For The Record. Read it HERE !

The article is about how women is being portrait and the way media / journalist is constantly questioning if she is getting fat or if she is pregnant.

The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty. Sometimes cultural standards just need a different perspective so we can see them for what they really are — a collective acceptance… a subconscious agreement. We are in charge of our agreement.

Sadly it´s not only the media who is responsible for this. Everyday both celebrity’s and in general people who put something on social media are being subjected to bullying or trolling.

How extremely sad isn´t it?  That still in 2016 women can´t be who they are. Women are still being put in this box of what they should be looking like. How to be/ become “perfect”. But what is perfect then? What you like, isn´t neceserial what I like…

I have struggled with my looks for as long as I can remember. Never thin enough. Never pretty enough. Never tall enough. Never this and oh so never close to the perfection you see on magazines. But on the other hand, that is me. I love tattoos, I color my hair, I probably were too much make-up, probably too much of everything. But then again, that is me.  Some like it and some absolutely hates it. And time after time, people have to comment on it. Yeas! Seriously, people do! To my face and most likely behind my back.

“What have you done to your body? ” “You are gonna regret that when you are older!” “Pink hair? People gonna stare!”

Honestly!!! I REALLY DON´T GIVE A S*** !!!!!

And although being a celebrity is something you choose, do they really deserve to be treated like this? If they have gained a bit of weight, is it really necessary to make that the front page? If they still haven´t becomed a parent, is it really necessary to speculate about it? If that is because of choice or circumstances …  still is none of our business.

And when it comes to the internet trolls… patetic can it get.

Either if that comes to trolling celebrity´s or on normal people’s  posts on social media, it is just pathetic!

To actually sit there hiding behind a computer writing horrible shit, to make themself feel better?????

If you ain´t got nothing good to say, then shut up! Move on! Get off the computer!

How hard can it be right?

One can only hope that people will get more educated when it comes to the use of social media….one can only hope ….

Bullying comes in many different ways and the only thing that’s for sure, is that it´s an act of cowards and jealousy!

Let people be, look and act as they want to. It´s their life !
