Firstly, this is in response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.” There are many different types of depth. Words can attempt to describe this concept; however, sometimes an illustration is more helpful. Here are some of the types of depth that I long for in my life.
This commercial caught my attention a few months ago. I had mixed feelings about it because I really enjoy feminine things and do not think princesses, pink, dolls, or glitter are evil. Girls should be as free to play with cutesy toys or dress in frilly skirts. Denying them that seems just as silly as forcing that upon them.
However, the fact that society ingrains into these children’s brains the need to be thin, beautiful, and alluring is just ridiculous. It irritates me to no end that girls are growing up with such detrimental messages been slung at them.
