Ok, I must ask, have we nothing better to do with ourselves than criticize Britney Spears?
I glossed over news articles the — news? —last few days but today’s headline stopped me in my tracks:
Actually, it is some of the headlines quoted within the headline of the above CNN article that got me going.
You see, I watched the awards and what I saw was someone who maybe was a bit nervous, maybe not, but that was my impression of the young woman. The second thing that hit me was, wow, she had two kids, isn’t she in wonderful shape?
Is she that much of a threat to some part of society I am unaware of that even her body must take verbal abuse?
Maybe it’s just me, but the use of the word “fat”, the existence of the word, just seems plain ludicrous. So does the constant criticism of the young woman most of us will never know. Have to wonder, why is it that so many enjoy seeing others down, and if in fact not down, well then certainly throwing enough energy their way to hopefully land them there?
