    I see this happen a couple times a week (without the computer assistance.) My best friend is a girl and I drop coffee off once or twice a week in the morning. She is a very attractive girl but in the morning she can kinda scare away the masses. After doing a very quick job on her hair and make-up she looks phenomenal. When she spends a little extra time she is drop-dead gorgeous.

    That is what is great about men. We are always handsome. We don't need make-up or a great hair style.

    Absurd. This is why people have self esteem issues, particularly young women, not to mention children.

    At one time, the manufacturers of "Barbie" (Mattel) came under fire for providing unrealistic expectations for young girls, through the doll's beauty and possessions, which of course the parents had to purchase.

    Yet today, the doll is seen as a figure of empowerment to children, I'd imagine through the persuit of shameless consumerism. (The car, the playhouse, ect.)

    "Barbie" is a mere piker compared to some of the other disturbing items out there. Recently there was an ad on tv for "Bratz Babies". This sick creation features, you guessed it, babies dressed up like hookers and wearing make up. And yes, young girls (or their parents) can purchase the toy tie-ins such as make up kits, aside from the dolls themselves.

    It is apparently not enough to create false impressions in children (that they no doubt will hold into there adulthood) through videos, commercials (which is all a video truly is), shows and other media, now they get saturated with this nonesense through the very toys they play with.

    Which, as part of the vicious cycle, they learned to want to get from the same media in the first place. As a result, folk "evolve" in a frighteningly warped way, where fashion and looks supplant decentness, loyalty and honesty.


    "False beauty" is highly overrated. It's vain, selfish and truly empty, as are the people that are mislead enough to embrace and champion it.

    It's no wonder that age old truths hold much wisdom. The one about "Never Judge A Book By It's Cover" comes freely to mind. As with make up, one never knows (until it's often too late) what it's really covering up.

    We had a woman where I used to work that all of the men used to practically drool over. She always looked pretty good.

    One morning I happened to run into her in Wal-Mart and she didn't have any make-up on. doesn't even begin to describe my initial reaction.

    There's a woman at work who has an A+ body. I mean her ass is a temple. Small tits even smaller than a batch a small tomatoes. Her face is cute but she's no raving beauty. Butterface in other words.

    And the older folk will understand this: I don't think she'd be a good companion.

    My daughter is a cute little girl and has always been fussed over. As a parent, to balance the comments about her looks, I constantly reminder her that it is more important to be pretty inside than pretty outside. Who wants to be around someone who is inconsiderate and hateful even though they have a pretty face. I know she gets tired of hearing it but I guess that's a parents job, to be annoying.

    As for the Bratz, it's amazing how many parents buy this garbage and even worse, how many parents let their kids dress like them. It's truly sad to see little girls with their bellies hanging out before they even get to high school because their parents can't say "no". It's the most disturbing that their fathers let them out of the house.
