CHANGE THE PICTURE

I found myself really bothered by seeing a young woman at the gym wearing a tee shirt reading "show your tits."  I mean, really? 

It just kept bugging me, so I decided that I needed to start looking for things to replace that image from my mind.  First thing was a little girl sitting on a bench outside the library, swinging her feet in sparkly pink shoes and reciting her own version of the alphabet, heavy on the x's.

Ahhhh, that did it!

And here's a mental picture for you. My toddler picked her own clothes this morning - pink leggings, pink tutu and striped shirt, paired with sparkly pink shoes and a flowered jacket. I'd send you a picture her in it all, but as soon as we got home from school drop off, she stripped down to just a diaper. Nevermind that it's 20 degrees out.

I abhor and fear the way young women let themselves be defined by their sexy bits. I fear we've got a generation of young women who will have to learn the hard way.
