I may write about Glee too much but last night I watched the ‘Born this Way’ episode and I have to give Glee a big thumbs up for dealing with the issues they did and it definitely inspired me. I have so many days when I dislike things about the way I look, I envy people in magazines or around me for the way they look and I’m always wondering what people think about me, how I look or what I wear. Although I’m sure I could change some this – I could lose some weight or change my hair style / colour but fundamentally this is how I look, this is who I am and I need to be more proud of that.
In the episode, the Glee kids all wore t-shirts displaying the part of them they were conscious of the most but something they were born with and wanted to be proud of (see above). I’m not sure what my shirt would say (future spinster maybe or big thighs but most likely one would be boobs aka larger than average :)) but it is important not to want to change who you are just because you may not fit into the perfect image or perfect person category. The world would be a pretty boring, Stepford wives sort of place if we all did.
So whatever you think about Glee or Lady Gaga, I think we can all appreciate the message they were trying to convey. Baby, we were born this way :)
What would your T-shirt say?
