the beauty myth

what is the beauty myth? well, it's what society tells us is beauty compared to what we think. I talked to 6 people, 3 adults, and 3 teens.I asked them what their definition of beauty is. Adult number 1 said," what makes me smile." Adult number 2 said,"it's whats within." Adult number 3 said." beauty is within the eye of the beholder." I am including my own definition for the 3 teens, so my definition is," Beauty is wearing things within your comfort zone and being confident when wearing them." wordy, yes, but that's my definition. Teen number 2 said," It's what you think it is." Teen number 3 said, "What makes people feel happy." None of these say, "A girl with a thin, sexy body," or, "A guy with a six pack and muscular arms." NO! Beauty is not having big boobs and a small butt, or having abs and muscles. It's not about wearing the right clothes or looking like models. It's about being comfortable with who you are. That's true beauty...
