Are We As A Society Too Hypocritical?

Screenshot_2015-06-02-10-12-09~2

Hey guys! Long time, no post I know! I’ve been so busy. I will try to do better I promise :).

Any who, back to the subject at hand.  As we all know by now, some time a week or so Bruce Jenner showed the world he has transcended into Caitlyn in Vanity Fair and had the Internet buzzing! For the most part, she has been embraced by many, received mostly positive remarks and even offered the ESPY Courage Award (even though some do not feel she deserves it).

At first, I was’t going to touch on this subject because EVERYONE else was talking about it already. Plus, my motto in life is “do whatever makes you happy, as long as you are not hurting anyone else in the process.” However, I saw this post traveling down my timeline on Instagram and had me intrigued a bit.

When I clicked on this post, it was a slew of of likes and comments that agreed with the post. A few commenters (mostly women) disagreed and it ended up being a heated debate in the comment section.

 I will admit society can be hypocritical at times. Nowadays, we (not everyone sadly) are a lot more accepting of someone who is gay or transgender. Honestly, it takes courage to come out and express who you are to your loved ones and the world around you with the possibility of being disowned, ridiculed, beaten or killed. It does seems like we as a society are quick to accept Caitlyn over the young ladies that are unhappy with their bodies and decided to do something about it.

Here’s how I agree with the post: There are a lot young and adult women who are insecure about their bodies and constantly deal with the pressure of having a particular body image to feel attractive. On top of that, dealing with negative comments from people, reminding them daily how imperfect they are physically.  Both the women and Caitlyn decided to modified their bodies to make themselves happy, confidant and free to be who they are.

Here’s how I disagree: There are women out there who are quick to modified their bodies not necessarily due to insecurities but specifically for a little social media popularity. A lot of women in the entertainment, sex industry/nightlife will often change their bodies to increase their notoriety. We all know sadly sex sells. If a stripper, bottle girl, bartender, hell even a Hooter’s girl gets butt injections, liposuction and/or breast implants, their tips will increase. You can even be famous nowadays just because you look good. Disturbingly, there was a screenshot of a young lady who recently had butt injections (specifically it was a picture of the injection site ewww!) that was floating around on Instagram. In the picture, the women made a caption stating that she admits to having the procedure, proud of having the procedure and how her body is going to get her “far” in life. Smh. That’s how I say it is different. The intention or motives behind getting the modifications done are different.

But, then again, who am I to judge? Like I stated previously, “do whatever makes you happy, as long as you are not hurting anyone else in the process.” That is the code that I live by. It’s your body and we all have one life to live. Do as you please.

What is your take on it?

Rape Culture – Cover Your Eyes

Interesting Article! Must Read.

While you were sleeping

Rape culture is when I was six, and my brother punched my two front teeth out. Instead of reprimanding him, my mother said “Stefanie, what did you do to provoke him?” When my only defense was my mother whispering in my ear, “Honey, ignore him. Don’t rile him up. He just wants a reaction.” As if it was my sole purpose, the reason six-year-old me existed, was to not rile up my brother. It’s starts when we’re six, and ends when we grow up assuming the natural state of a man is a predator, and I must walk on eggshells, as to not “rile him up.” Right, mom?

Rape culture is when through casual dinner conversation, my father says that women who get raped are asking for it. He says, “I see them on the streets of New York City, with their short skirts and heavy makeup. Asking for it.”…

What You Should Know About Waist Training

For all of my waist trainers out there, this one is for you.

Health News / Tips & Trends / Celebrity Health


The Kardashians are “obsessed.” Jessica Alba claims it helped her return to her pre-baby body. But what exactly is “waist training,” and does it work? More importantly, is it safe? We talked with health and fitness experts to get the skinny on Hollywood’s latest must-have accessory: a modern-day corset.

The backstory

Famous sisters Kim and Khloe have fueled plenty of interest in this trend, by posting Instagram photos of themselves in recent months wearing waist-training devices—essentially, bands of material that wrap tightly around the waist and lower rib cage to provide an instantly slimming, hourglass look.

Other models and celebs have touted the benefits of waist trainers, while actresses Brooke Burke-Charvet and Jessica Alba have credited similar products with helping them get…
