A blog about drawing and the creative process
Yeah, but it's important to recognise that this is a symptom of a much bigger malaise - a society enforcing these stereotypical expectations on girls (and women). It's something that boys and men are now having absurd fashion and appearance expectations heaped on them as well - at least that's fair! I know what you mean - personally, I've never liked makeup, but I don't necessarily hold it against the wearer.
Thanks for the comments Ian. Yeah I know females are really pressured to buy into all this crap. I just thought that maybe I could counteract some of this by saying I for one prefer subtleties and not to be donged over the head with superficial appearances! It's a tricky subject though as then your just putting more expectations there by saying this!! I've always thought that however you naturally look is best, some people are naturally skinny and some naturally curvy(and everything in between), both can look stunning!Some of my younger sisters friends just look so deathly skinny and you just know there has to be some eating disorder involved.
I've always thought that however you naturally look is best Yay to that! I 100% agree!
