His viewpoint is not only very Euro-centric in his definitions of beauty and why we should stop saying everyone is so, but there is an extra dose of USA centricity in there just for fun. He uses the word "world" in reference to why we should not find beauty in everyone when he only means USA based* on his examples. You know, like World Series, except it is not. And then he tells us we should just chuck our fight against it**, give in, accept that Madison Ave and the USA culture has won, we've lost, and pick some other phrase from a set he's deemed way more better. Thanks, maaaaaan. So happy to find you know what's best for the world based on your privileged US-centric view.
*gag* Enough already. Monitor your gender's feel good phrases, not everyone else's.
The post is here.
*But the fact is, we don’t own the word. The world owns the word, and to the world, “beauty” is physical attractiveness and nothing more.
**So what can we do to overthrow the system once and for all?....Honestly, nothing. You and I can’t take on corporations and multibillion-dollar industries on our own.<----Oooooo, solidarity!
