There is nothing better than reading comments that people post on a news article.
By reading these comments I have found out that I am the following:
Of a low IQ
A bad role model
Lacking any class
This is because I am a female who has a tattoo. Which I will no doubt regret (as people so often say).
You can bet that whenever the newspaper runs a story on tattoos there will be about 400 comments in response to it. About 380 of them will give a negative opinion and the remainder will defend themselves by saying they work in corporate and earn lots of money. Or they are a doctor or lawyer (that old cliche). And the men think it is awful when an attractive female defaces her body - unattractive females can do what they like.
It is just as bad when an article about overweight people pops up. Heaven help anyone hoping for some compassion. Everyone knows that fat people are weak, lazy and pathetic because that is the tone of the comments. And nobody wants their taxes paying for looking after these weak, lazy and fat people which is another common mention.
Oh, but if you are thin you are good so don't worry any of you out there who have health issues or an eating disorder because your food issues are good ones. You are thin and that is what counts.
If you are old though, well, sorry to say you will be invisible and sexless. Nobody after the age of 50 has sex because they are old. If you do admit to doing the rumpy pumpy be prepared for the vomit noises. You are also unemployable because older people are not as clever as young ones.
Pubic hair? Hey, that is not allowed. Two of my friends have teenage daughters who want to laser off their pubic hair because it is unclean. Most of their friends think they same way. I don't know how to break it to them that if they laser off their hair they will regret that more than if they were to have a tattoo. But how do you tell a teenage girl that her labia will sag just like the rest of her body and if she had a hangup about her bits as a teenager she is sure as hell going to have a bigger hangup at forty. Apart from that, is it not just awful that a female feels shame about her genitalia because it has something as natural as pubic hair on it?
I could go on and on about it all. Pressure, pressure and more pressure.
Guess what! There is no normal. There is diversity. There are differences.
And of course there are opinions and we can give them but can people maybe stop and think about what they are saying first? So brave behind anonymity.
It is okay to have thoughts. They are only thoughts. But to put it out there in such a mean way says a lot about the ugliness of some people in society. It just crosses so many lines of integrity.
Not much empathy on show though. I wonder if that is because people who empathise just live their lives and have their friends and do what they can to leave some kindness in the world and just do it quietly.
But how would I know? Being the stupid, ugly, tattooed slut that I am.
And I have cellulite too.
God, what a loser I am.
