Never once have I posted anything about Jennifer Lawrence, nor do I consider myself to be an avid fan of her. However. When I see certain things like this, it really bothers me.
I understand that humans have flaws. Jennifer Lawrence is a human. THUS Jennifer will have flaws.
There are several things in here that are correct in the fact that they aren’t appropriate. However. THERE IS A LOT OF STUFF IN HERE that she is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT CORRECT ABOUT.
"I remember when I was 13 it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder." This does not mean "IT IS COOL TO PRETEND TO HAVE AN EATING DISORDER." Jennifer is bringing awareness to the fact that eating disorders are glamourized and this NEEDS to stop. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, when I was 13, and I saw the models and the people on TV, I thought it was cool too.
IT ISN’T. THE MEDIA NEEDS TO CHANGE THIS.
AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT JENNIFER IS SAYING.
"In Hollywood, I’m obese." This statement is true. Many of the press photoshoots you see of Jennifer have been photoshopped without her consent. In this statement, she’s bringing awareness to the fact that Hollywood’s standards of beauty are MESSED UP. In another interview (in many, actually) she tells girls to love their bodies for what they are, to eat what they want, and not to conform to Hollywood’s standards.
I’m sorry, but how many people (and think about yourself, because it might be you) say things like this to one another. If you said something like “I feel like a psychopath” or “ugh, I’m going to kill someone” you and your friends wouldn’t bat an eye. These are phrases of speech. And even if it were morally incorrect, if you’re going to judge Jennifer and call her an asshole for saying these kinds of things; you better be damned ready to stop saying those things yourself.
You feel me?
This person also clearly hasn’t studied the Holocaust efficiently at all, because the Nazi’s truly believed what they were doing was right. They truly believed that Jews were criminals.
OF COURSE THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT, no shit dumb ass. But this was the mindset in the 1940’s, their economy was failing and they wanted a rising. They believed in Social Darwinism, and they blamed the Jews for their troubles.
It took the Germans twenty years to understand and acknowledge what they did was WRONG. Not just Hitler’s ‘error’ not even a fucking crime AN ‘ERROR.’
This is German cruelty, not something we can truly understand or relate to today.
Reblogging for the commentary because gahdamn that 5th slide BOTHERED ME SO MUCH.
On a side note, I will forever hate the fact that she rubbed her butt on a sacred rock. That’s not funny, that’s plain disrespectful.
