Friends can I get real for minute here?
Oh you guys are the best!
Can we please talk about the VS and Soma commercials?!
How are they NOT considered porn?
I'm not joking guys,
these commercials actually do offend me.
I feel that I should not have to see a basically naked woman
trying to be all sexy on my TV to sell me a bra.
It grosses me out.
Plus I'm a + size girl alright,
so yeah seeing these skinny ninnies that are literally POPPING out of their bras
is just disgusting.
Yeah I know, I'm probably gonna get some haters on this one,
but honestly I don't want my kids growing up thinking
that this is ok for them to see or, heaven forbid, exhibit!
I don't want my girls thinking they have to be skinny and sexy to be accepted,
and I don't want my boys to think that those are the girls they should want.
In this world I want my girls to be healthy,
so I don't want them to be fat ok?
I just don't want them to feel like they need to worry about the scale and numbers.
I want them to feel confident in who they are,
and not take any flak from anyone.
I want my boys to respect women and girls as daughters of God.
I want them to see their future wives and know that they were raised to be
confident and independent women that know how to carry themselves.
Before I was a mom,
I thought about these things a lot
but it was more about MY problems and struggles with
self-image and the scale and numbers.
Now that I have this beautiful baby girl I'm in charge of,
I think about it a lot more.
I'm so nervous for Rory to grow up in this crazy media world.
I'm really hoping that I will be able to teach her
to ignore the "normal" and to love herself.
To know that she is beautiful regardless of what other people say.
