Baby Got Back
Posted by Jamie C. Baker
I’m a little annoyed right now. I found out from a friend on Twitter that Iggy Azalea recently quit Twitter, giving control of her account to her management team, due to online bullying. Apparently, people went crazy over a photo of her in Hawaii wearing a bikini that displayed her large assets and her cellulite.
Quite honestly, I am disgusted. I’m ashamed to live in a world where the photo above is so revolting and so horrific, that people can’t help but reach out to the subject of the photograph and let them know they should wear multiple layers of clothing to hide their gross body from the world. Are you kidding me?!?
Let’s look back at Kim Kardashian’s “break the internet” photo of her giant, oiled up ass. No cellulite to be seen, right? Of course, when you use photography tricks, perfect lighting, and countless other ways to alter the photo into something artistic and flawless. No body is perfect. Photoshop can turn even the most horrendous looking person into someone aesthetically pleasing. But that simply isn’t reality.
Do we really have nothing better to do with our time than hurl insults at someone for the tiniest of flaws? Especially flaws we all have ourselves? Are we that insure with our own bodies that the only way to feel better is to degrade famous people for not being free of flaws? How pathetic are we?
I’m not some die-hard Iggy fan who is angry that her favorite celebrity got her feelings hurt. I personally don’t care for her music at all and have zero interest in her personal life. My focus here is on our sad society. It’s one thing to have an opinion. We all don’t have to agree on who is beautiful. We are allowed to think certain people are hideous. What isn’t okay is to purposely target the person and make them feel lower than a piece of shit. Famous or not, that isn’t okay to do to anyone.
We are all flawed in some way, but flaws are what make us beautiful. There are some things that one person considers a negative and another sees it as a fantastic positive. No two people look at one thing the same way. There is no right or wrong when it comes to beauty. So the next time you feel like calling out someone directly for wearing the wrong thing or looking the wrong way, take a second to think about why you’re acting like such a hateful twat and maybe keep your opinions to yourself this time.
