Miss Teen USA 2007 – Miss South Carolina says that the US needs to help improve the education in Asia!

I usually don’t just go ahead and link to something without some sort of intro or write up of my own, but this video is pretty self explanatory. It has already gained quite a bit of fame from Boing Boing, to Australian news stations to emails. So here’s my part in spreading the news.

We need more maps!

Hmmm how what more can I add?

Paris Hilton

Paris with her hand in her crotch

Just who do you think you are? You’ve broken the law many times and now it’s time to face the repercussions. It’s really stupid and sickening to see all the hype about this on the internet. Sites petitioning for her to be kept out of jail, letters to the governor of California to intervene and keep her out of jail, and for what reason? She is too pretty to go to jail. How vain can you get!

There are people with much more valid reasons not to go to jail under similar situations. Reasons that really do warrant them not going to jail, like taking care of their families, or being the sole provider for their children who are alone at home etc…

Paris, is none of that. She is a drunk, daddy’s girl, who thinks that life is all a big party. Her biggest worry is probably the fact that she might chip a nail while in the cell, or her hair might get a bit of grease on it. Grow up kid and get a life. You did something wrong, now you have to pay the price. Just like everyone else.
I guess you could always get your psychiatrist to write a letter on your behalf.

Dr. Charles Sophy, Hilton’s psychiatrist, wrote in a report: “She is emotionally distraught and traumatized as a consequence of the findings at the May 4 hearing, the jail sentence imposed upon her by the judge, and her fear of incarceration.”

This really is a bunch of crap. Everyone in the same position goes though the same but still has to face the consequences, I don’t see why this should be any different.

I implore Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger not to intervene and do stand by the laws that be and let her learn her mistakes just like everyone else.

Skinny models banned from catwalk – AMEN to that….

Picture of a model from CNN.comCNN.com talks today about the worlds first ban on SKINNY models. I am heartened and gladdened by this. Let’s be very truthful to ourselves. Do you really think the supermodels of our day and age are pretty. They have long and gaunt faces made pretty by a ton of makeup. They starve themselves to almost death for stick like figures – err I mean bodies. You really can’t call what they have figures anymore.

Who wants a model that’s so thin that you can see her rib cage and her shoulder blades poking out every time she walks? That is not beauty. At least in my book; it’s not.

According to CNN.com:

Madrid’s fashion week has turned away underweight models after protests that girls and young women were trying to copy their rail-thin looks and developing eating disorders.
Madrid’s regional government, which sponsors the show and imposed restrictions, said it did not blame designers and models for anorexia. It said the fashion industry had a responsibility to portray healthy body images.

Fashion is a mirror and many teenagers imitate what they see on the catwalk,” said regional official Concha Guerra.

The mayor of Milan, Italy, Letizia Moratti, told an Italian newspaper this week she would seek a similar ban for her city’s show unless it could find a solution to “sick” looking models.

I strongly believe in a healthy looking body. Beauty is something that is not equal to having a 12 inch waist and broomstick thin legs. That my dear public, and I’m very sorry to remove the wool that has been obviously covering your eyes for so long is an anomaly and something that needs to be treated.

skinny.jpegLet’s look at some of the “HOT” models strutting their “stuff” on the catwalk these days. Err some of you might be asking the question, WHAT STUFF. They are stick thin, and have no figures, no breasts what so ever to talk about, and certainly no ass to boot. I’m sure this statement will strike some as one coming from a chauvinistic male. Please don’t misunderstand me. I have nothing against women who are smaller made and I’m not saying that if you have small breasts you should get implants.

Skinny Model What I am against is the fashion industry trying to sell a particular look above all and say this is what beauty is. Everything else is below that.

If we look at male models they are well built, and healthy looking, not rain thin and look as if a bit of monsoon wind might blow them off their feet. So why the double standard when it comes to women.

The fashion industry sets a standard to a very large percentage of the population in the world. I think that since it has such a powerful voice, it needs to act responsibly and portray an image of healthy beauty.
