STOP ENCOURAGING THINSPO AND PRO ANA!!!!!!!

So its been a while i know but lately i came across this thing called thinspo and por ana on the internet and youtube. Now what is thinspo and pro ana, well thinspo is basically  thin+inspire or more to the point one step closer to being anorexic though this people claim it is not being anorexic but giving the weight they want to reach and the way the promote it, it might as well be called anorexic and pro ana is hardcore anorexia.

Now i know i made a post long time ago called ”confidence vs media”  and it was basically about being  really skinny is the new sexy (not). But when i came across this thinspo and pro ana i thought my point was taken in terms of the subject of being really skinny might not be as much talked about like before when we use to hear about it on the news or see it on magazines but it is still widely promoted in the internet targeting towards young girls. And it seems like they just re-brand the meaning to make it seem more acceptable. or promoting it as a fashion rather then a health issue.

I will post some of the disturbing links i found basically telling people how to get this sort of figure and ways to accomplish this. To me its a health problem no doubt about it, i mean i don’t think this is a fashion or a tend. Being a hipster is a trend, being a punk is a fashion style, being vintage is a trend but being thinspo or pro ana  is not a fashion or a trend they just say it so they we don’t bitch about it.

I mean you could say thinspo is not as bad as pro ana, but its still one step closer. I think that if you know you can lose so much weight then whats stopping you from going even further. Don’t get me wrong i suppose some girls might just become thin and then be happy with themselves but how often does that happen. Its like once you start taking a certain drug whats stopping you to take it even further, especially if that drug use to make you feel great but not anymore.  And really most of these girls were already slim or curvy even and they looked fine, at least healthy.

To me there is nothing wrong with losing weight here and there, i can understand some people might feel self conscious about themselves but thinspo and pro ana is taking to to the next level where you literally end up with a flat cheast and butt as well as chicken legs which to me is very unappealing. I don’t even know what makes these people think its sexy in anyway.

Now some of these people that does the thinspo diet don’t end up so bad compare to others or some are just naturally skinny, but even naturally skinny  people still has a bit of meat on them. I to am slim petite build and i eat a lot, and believe it or not i want to become more fuller, not saying i don’t have meat because i do but  imo think fuller looks better on a woman as suppose to a teenager boyish figure.  In some of the links i will post below i have to say that not all of them are bad, but most i think looks really ugly. I’m going to be blunt here but flat butt for me is a no no and really skinny legs is again another put off, ribs showing is the worse. I mean i can’t help but to eat even more when i see these images because my fear is looking like a skeleton.

I think that its still a major issue just not as direct but indirect or just covered up really until you find it. Oh and btw you can’t be that thin and when i say thin i mean THIN and have big boobs unless they photo-shop the images or have breast implants so don’t go telling me ” yeah they are thin but they still have breasts” NO its fake most likely trust me, you can’t lose that amount of weight and keep the breasts or make the food only go to one part of your body.

Thinspo and pro ana are still very serious and it’s sad to see that people still strive to be that thin. I have nothing against naturally skinny people by the way because of course its something you can’t help but i am not for the ones that wants to look beyond skinny.

Why beauty pageants should be banned for under 18’s

Now i don’t have anything against beauty pageants, i don’t think its wrong to have them. But i do find it wrong and creepy to see young kids as young as 5 years old in beauty pageants. Not just the fact that they are being exposed but the fact that some parents would go to extreme lengths i.e botox, yes believe it or not just so that they win. Also what does this teach kids??? that’s its ok to get plastic surgery, that beauty is the only thing important in life??. Honestly i think that some of these children should be removed from their parents because clearly this parents are ripping them off their childhood. Melbourne Hosts Controversial Child Beauty Pageant

Did you know it take up to 7 or 8 hours per day just to get the child ready in terms of costume, make-up and practice their skill/routine. The child is always being pressured by the parent to do 100% or nothing. Honestly i think the parent are the ones pushing their own failed dreams towards the child. Their doing it from themselves regardless on how the child feels. They don’t show you what happens next if the child fails to win do they?? Parents would get angry, upset, frustrated towards their child because she did not fulfill their potentials.  How do you think the child would feel?? upset, unwanted and a failure. Is this fair on the child of course not.

They say its good because it will make the child less shy and more confidence when they grow up. Somehow i think the child will grow up will to much confidence and have an ego. i don’t think a very young beauty pageant has anything  good to show for. I don’t think these kids will grow up right they will grow up thinking that only beauty is the way to get things in life.

Most disturbing thing is some parents would go the extra mile to get plastic surgery on the child???? i mean what the fuck is that all about?? of course its illegal but they somehow find a way to beat the system or they would inject it themselves without supervision or experience.

Already its hard today and kids seems to be growing up much more faster then they should. But this doesn’t make it better it makes it worse.

i just think its wrong for a parent to force their dream on a child and i strongly believe that they should be removed from them due to taking away their natural childhood, this is neglecting the child’s needs to feed your own..

Being a normal child model such as promoting toys and clothing is one thing, but taking it to the next level is another. Just imagine how the child feels everyday to wake up early, practicing,  get ready, get make-up done, getting told what to day, say and behave.

Having a parent then teaches you that beauty is the right way forward and that you will make a lot of money from it if successful is giving the child bad advice to take on as they grow older. Parents treats their children as a product they are trying to sell and not as a human being.

Also this will trigger

  •  hatred and jealousy towards other
  •  low self-esteem if the lose the contests after being worked so hard to win and being told your not good enough basically
  •  Self destructive behavior such as bulimia, anorexia.
  • Compulsive exersize disorder as they grow older
  • Perfectionism
  • Mental disorder

So why would you treat your child like a product????? The reason why i say 18 is because i think that’s the time you can decide whether you want to do it for yourself or not. You have a choice, you have your own mind, you have your own expressiveness. But under 18 i think your more likely to be more influenced but others without knowing what you think is best for yourself.208726-beauty-pageant

Breast enlargement truths and myths

Hey all. Well today i was just thinking about something i don’t think i have written about yet, something new and i hope you guys will like or have some sort of interest lol. Its about breast enlargement. I’m not going to make about rant about whether its a good or bad thing, just going to make a few points about it and express my opinions about the whole thing as well as talk about the artificial and natural ways. breast-implant

How are breast form??

Ok now it’s mainly two things. 1. fats and 2 genetics. As you all know breast and made from fatty tissue stored in your breast. It goes to say that the more you eat the bigger they will become, however we can’t control where the fats goes in our bodies but we can do exercise to keeps the breast looking firm and lose weight anywhere else in the body where needed. BUT having say the more you eat the bigger they become is not always true. If you have a very high  metabolism then it will be hard to store fat anywhere never mind your breasts and i wouldn’t recommend pushing yourself to eat more because you will over work your stomach ( which already works fast). How do i know, well i have a  high metabolism and if i try to push myself to gain weight by eating more i will be  sick and have bad stomach pains because i over worked my stomach.

Genetics. Yes it can also be a pass down from mothers or even grandmothers. If large breast runs in your family then it would be a more likely chance you will have large breast to. Again not all the time, sometimes the genes catch more from one side then the other unless both side of the family have this gene.

Artificial 

Ok well the first and most successful way to make them bigger is of course plastic surgery. But i need to note two things about it which they won’t tell you. First off you would need to change and replace them every 3-5 years. Some can be done every 10 years but think about this your going to have to save at least up to 5K  or more after your surgery for the next time when they need to be taken out and replaced. Now unless you have a lot of money and don’t care then that’s fine, But if you don’t well its might be a problem after 5 years or more. I know the NHS can take them out for free but they won’t replace with a new one. You can’t keep the same implant forever mainly because of the infections you might get once expired. Second thing i hear and even even felt once its that you loss sensation. You don’t have that same feeling when you touch the breast and also it does feel a bit like a basketball (well the woman did go from a B cup to a F loool)

The only thing i’m going to say about this is make sure you always do 10000000000% research on the surgeon before even considering, many cases things has gone wrong and sometimes unfixable. Also i would say if your considering to do it once you have fully developed. Breasts stops growing from your early 20s, there is not point getting them done at 16 when you haven’t fully grown yet. I also want to say if your going to do them then do it for yourself. Please don’t consider this because others have pressured you to do it.

Natural

Now all these creams and enhance pills 80% don’t work like they say they would. why??? well its simple to make the breast and only the breast bigger is hard unless everything else gets bigger ( except for plastic surgery). These products might work with women who already have large proportion but it might take much much longer for others who don’t and even so you might gain maybe a cup size bigger if not half a cup. And lets face it if these products did really work then nobody would be getting breast implants anymore.   The only things i notice does work is birth control pills. They have pro-estrogen which can increase breast size BUT again all your body will get bigger to. Its just something we really can’t help or control or of course getting pregnant will make your breasts bigger .

Myself i think well each to there own really. We can’t say yes its 100% right or no its 100% wrong. I guess we can see it from two points of views. One which is for more confidence. If a woman really feels insecure with herself then i guess she has the right to make herself feel better and most of then time those women only go a cup size or 2 bigger (depending on how small they are) just to proportion themselves or another way i see it is women who work in a adult industry i.e strip clubs or porn may get it for their jobs, again something i can understand why and i’m sure we can to.

The second point we can see it from is because of more attention and or pressure. Now for me doing it for attention is very off putting, its basically saying your cheap and have nothing else good to show about yourself. Sorry it this offends people, and doing it because of pressure again you have to think to yourself that we are all born with a unique features don’t let anybody talk down on you because you might be a A cup. I see some women with small breasts but they have amazing legs which most men would find that more appealing.  Like most girls who thinks the bigger the better, tbh men don’t actually care, as long as its there even small or big a woman is a woman and most of them like different aspect of a woman. Some likes legs, butt, face, feet, eyes, lips and of course the most important personality etc etc.

Anyways like i said be careful and always think before considering something that will change your life forever and also if you do please don’t go overboard to the point where you just look like a stick with 2 footballs on your chest, keep it proportion with the rest 🙂

 

 

Top 10 common beauty/health secrets that does nothing

Well we have all at one time or another looked on the internet or even read magazines about how to stay healthy, young,  beautiful and looking better. However are most of the common facts we read are true or just cock and balls to spend unnecessary money or even waste our time trying to make things better or nothing happening at all. I will list some of the most common things we hear on a daily bases which says it will help but actually does nothing or make things worse. download

1. 8 Glass of water a day myth

Yes i’m sure we are always told that drinking 8 glasses of water per day will keep your skin hydrated and look young. BULLSHIT. excuse my French here but it really doesn’t do much in fact its a myth. reasons, well its proven  the more we drink water the more our kidneys function and the more pressure you put on your kidneys the more chances you will have kidney failure.  Also doctors has no evidence on how many glasses of water you must drink per day.Its the manufactures that pushes you to buy more water and spend money on something that isn’t even true. i will add a link to read on about this myth : http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/jul/13/myth-eight-glasses-water-day

2. 5 a day

Yep the whole ”5 a day” eating fruits and vegs is another cock and balls really. There is no scientific fact that eating 5 a day will help reduce cancer, lung disease, heart disease etc. In fact you can get more vitamins from eating liver then you can from a apple. The supermarkets use this 5 a day brand as an excuse to raise the prices on fruit and vegs. I’m not saying we should all stop eating fruits and vegs but we don’t have to necessary force ourselves to eat soo much of  it when you can get the same vitamins and minerals from meat, daily, bread etc. Again i will post the full link here about it : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/food/article-1349960/5-day-fruit-vegetables-myth-claims-nutrition-expert.html

3. Anti aging creams

Yeah i don’t really have to explain why this is a fail tbh. But i do know that they might keep your skin moist and what not but there isn’t really a cream to keep you younger or get ride of all wrinkles like we see on the ads, growing old is a part of life and the only think to keep it up and lifted is probably botox  and drinking 8 glasses of water doesn’t make the progress better lol

4. Cucumber on the eyes myth

Yep another myth. They say the vitamins goes to your eyes and reduce blood vessel exposing but actually its because cucumbers can last a long time being cool after it is taken out of the fridge. Its not the vitamins ( supposedly)  that helps, its the coolness, so the same method would work if you used a damp cloth on your eyes as long as its cool.

5. Cutting your eyelashes to make them long.

Yes some people say this will work the same way as cutting your hair. But it doesn’t. Please don’t do this you will end up eyelash less.

6. Washing your hair everyday

Yes by washing it will always smell nice but it will also take out all the natural oils to help them grow and your hair will be dry and damage due to no moister.

7. Eating junk food causes spots

Well yes BUT they are other main factors to which we cannot help such as stress, hormones, changing diets, bacteria and pollution. So don’t always blame the junk food for spots its only a minor contribution to it as suppose to the others listed.

8. Waxing is better

Well yes and no and also depends the person. Some people only wax once a month and have less hair and some does it once a week. There is no better or worse ways to remove hair, shaving and waxing it all depends on your genetics and that will determine how fast or slow your hair will grow. Also some people may have skin irritation after waxing and cause skin to become sore and red hence why they seek other alternatives to remove hair.

9. Pulling grey hair

They say if you pull one grey hair many more will come….. NO. Its like saying if you pull a carrot from the ground 10 more will just appear just like that haha.

10. Using facial scrub creams and products.

Ok this is kinda linking back to number 7 but unfortunately most facial scrubs we use to clean our face does not work 100% . I mean yes it will clean your skin but it will not get ride of spots or pores like it says it would. The main factors like i said on number 7 was mainly due to diet, pollution, stress, hormones etc. And somethings we can’t control, its a part of nature or environmental facor. Lets face it if you have a good diet, live in the fresh air and not stress your skin will have hardly if no stops or break outs without the facial scrub itself.

There’s my list of common things and remember don’t always believe what your hear on the TV or Magazines 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Confidence vs media

gyaru-weightloss

Ok so the other day i was just browsing on the web and some people may know i like Japanese things i.e manga, fashion, technology, creativeness etc when suddenly i came across this picture on the right!!!!! Now at first i though this might be a campaign or something towards anorexia but its the opposite. Its suppose to show how ” beautiful” you can be if you lose 20kg or more. Really?? No offence but these girls now look like they have a body of a teenager boy who is about to go though puberty.

I mean really this the what they are promoting???? I look at this myself and think ” Crap i need to eat more in case i end up looking like a aids appeal for staving children”  Come on its true.

I mean in what way this this sexy??? all i see is stick with a head. To me this is very very underweight, unhealthy and i’m not surprise young girls feel insecure when the media is parading  stuff like this saying its ok to look like you haven’t eaten in months.

Now some people might think the whole being size 0 faze is long and gone now but you will be surprised its actually not. There is a site called gyaru secrets.com And what seems like a innocent site of  girls exchanging tips and advice on Japanese fashion etc its actually a bitching field with people promoting pics like this and saying everyone is fat and ugly and bla bla bla. I will add the link to see for yourself : http://gyaru-secrets.livejournal.com/

The things is i’m not saying its ok to be SUPER SIZE or anything. But keeping fit and healthy is normal. Losing a bit of weight here and there is fine to (if its yourself and not from pressure of others or society) But to actually lose nearly all your body fats is just too far.

We all feel insecure about ourselves and its normal, then again we have to see it from this point of view each person has his or her own taste in a person. Some like curvy, some like slim, some like a bit more then curvy etc but i dunno who really likes anorexia looking people????  I don’t think i have ever heard of such. To me looking this skinny just looks ill and very unappealing. Here are some facts and statistics about dieting to the extreme.

  • Being underweight affects reproduction at every stage.
  • Bone-thinning disease osteoporosis due to years of extreme dieting. The disease, which leads to bone fractures, usually affects post-menopausal women is can also happen at a young age to.
  • When you go on a crash diet, it’s not just fat you lose. Losing weight rapidly results in muscle loss but it’s not just your biceps that are affected.
  • Triggering kidney and heart failure.
  • In the long term, it’s also bad news for the brain. The brain tissue shrinks, showing similar changes to those in dementia sufferers. Lack of B complex vitamins will also damage nerves, causing numbness and pins and needles.
  • In the longer term, a lack of nutrients can also lead to depression, according to Dr Fox. This is because the body isn’t able to make neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) such as serotonin, which boost mood.
  • In the longer term, a lack of nutrients can also lead to depression. This is because the body isn’t able to make neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) such as serotonin, which boost mood.
  • Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents 95% of those who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25
  • 50% of girls between the ages of 11 and 13 see themselves as overweight
  • 80% of 13-year-olds have attempted to lose weight
  • Rates of minorities with eating disorders are similar to those of white women
  • 74% of American Indian girls reported dieting and purging with diet pills
  • Eating disorders are one of the most common psychological problems facing young women in Japan.

So next time you feel the need to lose weight please be responsible, do it for yourself and not for what the media says you should look.

Skin bleaching?? right or wrong??

Is is right to bleach your skin to became more fair. Should people be happy with what they have. Why is ok to tan but we make a big deal out of being lighter. Does this have something to do with history????

I am not for or against skin bleaching i am tanned skin myself but many people seem to take it as a offence to their culture or some even push people to to it. I’m just gonna give in my summary about it and sum up whether its a personal choice or for society.

Ok some people do it for confidence and let face it we all had our own issue with ourselves in the past and even present. whether is it skin, nose, breast, weight loss etc. So you can argue that if they feel more confident with lighten  their skin then let them be. I mean we don’t say anything to a person they they wish to become tanned so whats the difference with wanting to become lighter. In the west is it exotic to be tanned and in the east it exotic to be lighter, that’s just the way we and they see it. But unlike the west there is a history towards being light and tanned.

Back in the day all the tanned people would mean they are slaves or labors working in the rice, cotton etc fields and all the light skin people would live in a big mansion and not go out much. So already there is a thing where light people are seem are rich and well off where as the others are seem as poor.

This doesn’t mean that the reason why people want to become lighter is because of the previous history though some people still believe and even continue thinking that the paler the better in terms of what society will think of them.

Some people believe that the lighter you are the most chances you have in finding a good and well off husband, fame, jobs prospects will be a higher chance for you etc. Even parents would recommend their  own children to get lighter for those reasons. Even the media in the east will always show light skin girls getting the guy they like or featured in ads and such, so of course people would want to be lighter because they feel that you have more potential in life then being tanned. So basically its more for society then personal choice it self.

NOW let’s just say what if racism and slavery on the past never happened?? would people still feel the need to change their skin or would they be more comfortable. I in my option think that if slavery never existed they rates of skin bleaching would be much lower, only those who really want to do it for themselves like when people what a nose job or a face lift and not society, because lets think about it its because of the history and even the media today makes yous feel that we are inferior to others and even though racism isn’t directly towards people its indirect in some cases.

But would that mean white people would still get a tan?? well there is not  history with  people getting a tan its always been about personal choice  where as skin bleaching kinda is based of history, media and society. People should wear their skin color with pride and i can understand why others would take it as a offence its basically being an ass to your parents because they worked hard life and your ashamed of that despite the fact they worked hard because they had no choice. But like i said some people really actually do it for themselves and not because of society.

I to be honest i don’t find bleaching to make a person more beautiful or less. The way i see people is  that we are all equal and everyone has their own unique features which makes the world an interesting place and im all about the character of the person.  And let’s face it we  all have our own different taste to. would be boring if everyone looked the same.download

No respect these days who’s to blame??

English: Kids Climbing Frame Always a worry fo...

English: Kids Climbing Frame Always a worry for first time parents! Shooters Way houses visible in the background. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Do you think discipline can help kids to be a better person in the future?? do you even think kids today value what they have compare to most???Do they even know what respect means???? Who is to blame???

Right im not here to disrespect or tell people how they should raise they kids today but i think there is a lot more we can do for  kids  in today’s generation in terms of  respecting others and learning how to value life itself.

I was watching a Tv series ” worlds strictest parents”  and to be honest i found that all the parents we’re not strict at all?? in fact most of the parents just teaches their children that life is not easy and the should be grateful for the little things in life and work hard if they want to get somewhere. im sure people would agree on that. However the Brit kids seem to have none of that, the don’t respect their parents, older people, themselves and they don’t seem to appreciate that even though they might not be having ”fun”  in the they still have more advantage then most kids in other parts of the worlds if they wanted to become something in life.

who’s to blame???

Well a number of people would, the parents?? Sure they probably tired but more can be done. We want the best for our kids and we want them to have freedom but not end up turning into animals, even animals have more respect for their own. This why i believe making rules, discipline and even smacking should be in forced from a young age. When i was growing up in my house i had freedom but if i swore at my father SMACK.,it wasn’t hard but he was right, i was a child and need to learn to respect my elders especially if its someone taking care of me. I had chorus to do around the house, again this thought me as i grew up them you have to do things for yourself and not rely on others to do them for you all that time. It called the value and principles of life, which most teens today don’t have. Instead they do what they like, which 99% of the things the do it stupid anyways and they end up becoming losers.

Some time ago on the bus there was a kid around 11, he go on the bus tapped his card it didn’t work so the bus driver told him to tap again, the kid go angry and told him to ” fuck off”  just like that for no reason the driver wasn’t rude or anything but i thought to myself ” if my kid talked like that to me i would smack that kid hard till the tongue comes off”

Second people who are to blame is politicians. There are not enough social activities for kids at all, unless you have money and can afford places. Nearly all the youth clubs are being shut down, sold to private to make flats. No wonder you see kids hanging on the streets, they have nowhere to go!!! They lack social skills, independence, meeting new people, being active so they do stupid things because what else is there to do. Hence why kids won’t respect others since they have been neglected by but the adults.

How to solve this??

It takes 2 to tango here really. Parents need to be able to take a lead in the house, im not saying they have to beat them blue but discipline in a way that will make them understand the value of what they have and the politicians should do more to make sure these kids have things to do and have somewhere to go after school otherwise they will end up being animals on the streets.
