"I keep telling myself that I'm a human being... who's not made to look like a doll and that who I am as a person is more important than whether at that moment I have a nice figure. It makes me sat to hear girls constantly putting themselves down. We have this unbelievably high expectations of ourselves, when actually we're human beings and our bodies have a function." - Emma Watson
I’m so fucking weird It’s like: I’m the nicest rude person you’ll ever meet. I don’t give a fuck about anything but at the same time, I care about a lot. I hate people but I want to be everyone’s friend. I hate myself but I’m completely fabulous. I need help.
"When 12-year-old girls are watching something like the CW’s long-running campy drama One Tree Hill (which aired from 2003-2012), in which actors like 25-year-old Hilarie Burton played 17-year-old cheerleader Peyton Sawyer, they’re not seeing an accurate portrayal of their future on screen. They’re seeing a glamorized vision of some executive’s idealized version of high school instead. When a real 16-year-old cheerleader flips on the CW and sees fellow pompom shakers who look like Burton or costar Sophia Bush, also well beyond her high school years, they’re looking at themselves at wondering why they don’t look like that in their uniform. Here’s the secret: they didn’t when they were 16, either."
