She grazes the cover of over 1,000 magazines. In essence of sexiness and feminism, this tall, thin, and toned model is society's spokesmodel for how women should look and in turn depletes the only true beauty a woman should possess. What do we have when we are set to contain an identity that is hardly the norm, yet is coveted by women all over? The answer: we have generations of young girls striving for the wrong things in life. As a teenager, I wanted to be Cindy Crawford. As an adult, I still long to be her but because of her strength, motherhood, and inner beauty, not because of her profound and perfected looks. You see, when we as a society continuously mistake perfectionism with having the perfect pout or perfect hairstyle we are doing nothing noble for the generations of women to come.I've heard it said many times, that we need to portray women in a natural, normal state rather than that of a minority type of model that is few and far between. How do we as a society keep migrating back to the idealistic look a woman should possess as being flawless, skinny, and better than a photoshopped picture? Now, what needs to be done is something that I can only hope catches on soon for girls all over the world. We do not condemn society for wanting to sell, and we get it-sex sells. I do, however, believe that an all natural, down to earth, run of the mill girl that possesses flaws and imperfections should be allowed to embody the true essence of a woman. Will your items sell as fast-maybe not, but you will however reach out to a greater number of people who can relate moreso to you and your intended product because they feel they are good enough to be a part of it. Society has needed a change for a long time in the sense of superficial looks and beauty. What about the girl down the block who has scars from a major car accident, but possess this radiating confidence that will make others take notice? I understand the topic at hand will forever be under debate as well as the fact that beautiful, nearly flawless women will always be a big part of our world-but I want my teenage daughters to rock confidence; not perfectionism. If they try to hard for perfectionism, their confidence will only be depleted as perfection is an unreal life goal and destination.
