And the lemmings march

I have decided to take a long needed break from talking about my woman trouble. To delve back into the land of philosophy. I was inspired by reading Society and it's misguided rules by curious082385

Do you see this picture here? This is a resault of a sickness. A sickness that plagues our land no matter where we go. This is the product of fads and the need to be popular. Instead of being yourself. Why is being popular so important to some people? How is it that societal pressures have such power over us?

I have also noticed how ones looks used to be something only a female made a big deal about. But I have noticed a growing trend of men who are caring about their looks like women. They call them metrosexuals. God they even wear makeup.

People have let the ideals of society consume them so much that no one thinks for themselves. If Oprah or Dr.Phil say its so then it must be so damn passivists. If Cosmo has it printed in their magazine well hell thats like the holy bible of whats fashionable yet I dont see this woman's picture on the cover. I mean the thinner the better right? Hell all the images on any magazine are digitally enhanced. Its crazy what they can do with an image.

The only possible reason I can think of as to why society has the power it does is because people in general are too stupid to form their own opinions and ideals. Or is it our own conceded nature to want perfection?

I myself being a very fat man have been subject to much ridicule in my life about it. People have choosen not to know me at all because of it. Im trying to lose all the weight but do I do it for them..........FUCK NO! I dont owe those people anything. I do it because I want to be able to physically do more things (alittle more stamina in bed would be nice also and maybe be able to do a few positions that would be hard for me as Iam now) but also one thing I enjoy is paintball gunning but its hard on me because Im not so agile. To lose weight because someone says I should to "fit in" fuck that. I will stay true to who I am and do what I want to do...those who dont like it well...Ill be nice and shave a spot on my ass for you to kiss so you dont get hair in your teeth.

Do what YOU desire...fuck what anyone thinks of you.

I have always been a person who does not care what anyone else thinks or says about me. Then I met Dr. Laura Schlessinger.
Dr. Phil and Oprah are rank amateurs compared to Dr. Laura !!!
Oh wait......
Nite, You have to be you and never try to conform to what others think you should be. If you lose yourself you have lost the most important thing in the world and its hard to find your way back....

I usually do whatever I damn well please. Still, I can't help feeling my looks are what keeps men I'm interested in from actually expressing said interest.

I briefly dated a guy who refused to introduce me to his friends as anything more than a friend (even though we were sexually involved). He eventually admitted he was embarrassed to let it be known we were an item, so I dumped him and we didn't speak for about 7 years. I saw him recently and he hasn't changed at all. The jerk...

sheep, mere sheep

everyone, including me, gets indoctrinated into some type of fad at one point or another. its what you do once you realize it that matters. i completely agree that society drives a lot of ideals. But without it you must be prepared to travel alone and outcast. For some thats too lonely a road to take.

You are so right with this post yet society unfortunately does try to dictate how we should look. It is a shame because so many go unnoticed due to and unacceptable appearance according to the books and magazines. That photo you posted is a result of all this propaganda. I am guilty of falling into this hole myself...

What I desire doesn't really matter...never really has to anyone..hard to start now.

Princess - Yea women do that too...what the guy did was dishonorable...I cant really understand it....I know this one guy his g/f was a 300 pound behemoth...I mean she was a huge black woman and about an inch taller than me...Im 6'2" ok this guy hes 5'9" seriouly if she wanted she could own him now a days he denys haveing anything to do with her...or he'll say he was I never once made fun of him for it....I say be with who makes you happy. Its sad though that people for the sake of appearance want somone who looks good instead of find someone thats good to them...dont get me wrong there does have to be a certain amount of attraction ther for it to work but I think attraction is about finding both a person that looks good to you and is good to you.

Silver - I am an outcast I would rather be that than give in to soceities stupidity But it can be lonely sometimes and finding someone whos an outcast too isnt as easy as you think.

Bella - what do you mean what you desire doesnt matter? should matter to one person and one person alone give up on it and you wont ever be happy. and no its never too late

Spin - yes actaully I did get to read your post I couldnt help it I wanted to see if it would get posted That song has more profanity than any other song Ive heard to date

nighstalker, you would HATE Dr. Laura. She's all about family values, respecting your parents, etc. But she allowed her own mother to die in poverty. It was different for her...

Now, anorexia is a serious disease. In general, it affects men and women who feel they have no control over their lives, other than what they eat. There are pro-ana pages all over the web. Many of the women who suffer are trying to find their skeletal selves.

Now, they have discovered anorexia in societies where people aren't hung up on being skinny. There are still isolated places where fat is fashionable. However, even in these places, there are people who will suffer anorexia. So, they are starting to wonder how many do it because they want to be as thin as models.

Look, screw people if they can't handle fat people. In those cases, that is something TV and magazines have done to them. Look at how many people consider Kate Winslet and Liv Tyler fat, because they're not size zeros. Size zero has become the Hollywood standard for actresses. I'm waiting for them all to start keeling over dead.
