Thighbrows, Or How The Media Wants UsTo Hate Ourselves.
I am SICK SICK SICK to the back teeth of the media thinking that we are idiots. For every article about body positivity, there are 20 out there that talk about how we SHOULD look, what we SHOULD wear and the RULES of owning our body.
The latest "craze" is the Thighbrow. The thighbrow is the crease your skin makes at the top of your thigh apparently.
Their are magazines out there that for the last few weeks have hyped up the thighbrow as if it is a new law brought in by Jeremy Corbyn. They have shared instagram pictures of the Kardashians and internet masturbated over them harder than me on Tom Hardy's Myspace page.
Then once they have body shamed everyone enough, THEN the media tell us not to worry about thighbrows.
The phenomenon that YOU CREATED to body shame and give you an excuse to post swim wear pics of teenagers, NOW you don't want people to give a flying fuck about?
Grazia UK Tweeted, "What the heck is a #Thighbrow(and why you shouldn't give a damn about it)"
(Note the hashtag, they are going to ride that bitch like Seabiscuit.)
Why in 2015 must the media be so controlling over OUR bodies? Why must the next generation of women be TOLD what kind of body they should have, only to be told a week later that they shouldn't have it, or they shouldn't worry about it. MIXED MESSAGES.
Don't hand women a shit sandwich, tell us to eat it and then lecture us on the calories in it afterwards.
Thighbrows, Eyebrows, Toned arms, tattoos. The glossy magazines WANT us to feel bad about ourselves so that they can sell us things to make us feel better about the way THEY HAVE MADE US FEEL.
What do you think?
Share with me your thoughts.
