Fake and Real
ugh... Sometimes, I feel like Holden in The Catcher in the Rye.
It's weird... I was so carefree in high school, and now, I see hypocrisy, phoniness, and everything just seems so fake... (sigh) I think it also has to do with the fact that I'm not exactly going through a fun part of my life right now. I do not care to share, btw.
Everybody knows the stupid burger in the magazine or commercial is not what it really looks like, nor is it even real! So, why does everyone believe in media so much still? Ads are fake; the pictures are completely altered.. media is fake... so Why has CNN become celebrity news? Who cares about fake news? Does no one care about what is happening to our collapsing economy? Does no one care about the rest of the world?
ugh... and women... Does anyone else see that there is a huge promotion for women to be fake... LITERALLY.
There's that stupid show... ugh... what is it called? The housewives of Orange County... or something.. I don't know. It's a reality show about these old ladies that all have fake boobs, fake hair, fake stomach, fake cheeks, fake everything... I mean, some of those ladies (sigh) look like their faces are going to melt. But, that's portrayed as luxurious and cool.
So many women are just like children.
Husband, husband, buy me this ring, and that sparkly rock... ooo...
I just don't get it. By the time I'm 70, women won't look like humans anymore. Don't women get it? We're not supposed to be proud of being so superficial.
And, men... they're pretty bad too. They love having women be objects. I don't even need to explain this. I have never been hit on for being smart. NEVER! Yet, almost every day, some creepy guy thinks it's important for me to know that he thinks I'm hot. But, I remember getting a little turned on when a guy could do something impressive, like figuring out a clever way of solving a math problem or being an amazing swimmer.
Women are superficial about themselves. Men are superficial about women... I don't know which is worse...
I guess I'm a bit superficial also... but I don't think I'm at the extreme that most women have come to these days... At least I realize that most everything I hear and see is like the hamburger... completely glossed over and manipulated...
Most women have not read anything other than celeb magazines and romance novels (like 3rd grade reading level except with lots of words like pen**, bosom, and co**, which many 3rd graders don't know) since college. Some women know the names of celebrities' babies. But, they haven't done any research when it comes to voting for the next president.
And, I do think there are a few people who are completely not like this... but, for the majority, people are just so shallow and so EASILY manipulated by media.
ugh... I haven't been very happy lately... I guess that's the reason for all the miserable posts. sorry... but I don't care. It's my blog.
