Short people are closer to the ground and closer to satan
I’ve wanted to get this down for a while. I have an interesting view when it comes to this.
I once heard someone call their body their “meatsuit” and it got me thinking. What is a body? Why do we place so much importance on it? There are so many people that place judgement on a person for their body, but never stop to consider the person inside that body.
My view is that our body is nothing more that our vehicle. We can see the world though the eyes, hear sounds through the ears, and express our thoughts with the vocal chords. But really what you and your body are are two entirely different things. And you leave your body behind when you die.
I think a person should put more effort into bettering “themselves” before their “vehicle.”
Basically, I try to live my life by looking past a persons body, or “vehicle” and trying to see the person inside. And it has helped me relate to people, it’s helped me look past differences, and it’s helped me kind of see that while we are all special, and we are all essentially equal.

I suggest all females watch this.
*i suggest all humans watch this.
If you haven’t watched this yet, you really should.
This is a must, girls and boys.
I agree that everyone should watch this. This is one of the few videos on female representation in the media that at least tries to point out that the way females are represented has a negative effect on everyone, not just women.
I love that this`touches also on how media affects men, but wow. Stereotypes are perpetuated by television more than in reality, and they are so skewed because they have to be provocative or funny or any number of things that aren’t complete or real enough.
This affects not only women and men, but race, gays and lesbians, trans people, all people.
We all struggle against what we are supposed to be, what we are told we should be, and yet when positions in media and PR change, the image doesn’t. Because people get those positions by conforming to that image, and breaking out risks loss.
This is why it is so hard for anyone to be who they really are, because they are so busy being what other’s expect so as not to be harassed for not being what they are supposed to be.
Oh man, Geena Davis. I love her with all -y heart.
All my followers should watch this video
Everyone needs to watch this and see how harmful misrepresentation and perpetuating harmful stereotypes are not just to a minority group, but to everyone.
Only by adapting a new way of thinking, by treating everyone equally, and even eroding gender roles, can we influence our peers and perpetuate something good.
