Then, I came home to read this (below) on my cousin Jolene's facebook page:
In case you don't know, a majority of the ads and photos in Glamour magazine deal with botox, losing weight, wearing makeup . . . and are designed to coerce women into conforming to society's vision of femininity. However, towards the end of the magazine they have a memoir by Stephanie Nielson. Hypocritical? Or trying to be subversive? I'm not sure which...
I didn't understand, because I had not yet heard of Stephanie Nielson. I googled her name. This is what I found:
Stephanie, Before Plane Crash
Stephanie, After Plane Crash That
Left her Entire Face and Body Burned
So no, now I CAN'T BE BOTHERED worrying about frizzy hair and inevitable laugh lines. This girl is beautiful and so are you and so is everyone else and you damn well better go take a look in the mirror and just be grateful.
