I think if we want to take care of the next generation of girls we should reassure them that power, strength and character are more important than beauty and always will be, and that even if they aren’t thin and pretty, they are still worthy of respect. That feeling is the birthright of men everywhere. It’s about time we claimed it for ourselves.
‘am i right ladies’ is the best way to end any text post am i right ladies
to anyone wondering: this is why i hate the syria reenactment by save the children UK
1. the soundbites include “rebel forces,” but never regime forces (so if i was someone who wasn’t educated about syria, i’d think the suffering and the situation was caused by the “rebels” and not assad’s forces)
2. this goes to show that the world doesn’t give a shit about suffering in the MENA and elsewhere until someone *white* reenacts it
3. it belittled every thing that has been going on in syria for the past three years, there’s an endless number of videos from syria that should go viral, yet don’t. for ex, newborn children that starve to death from malnutrition in houla or yarmouk… those videos usually don’t get more than 600 views.
What would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:
The disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.
