Really interesting...and funny facts.

Ive always found dat Marilyn Monroe was a beaitfull woman, especially her figure.

I really dislike skinny woman, especially fashionmodels. It doesnt look healthy to me, and I like to see woman with curves. Ive been too skinny for the most part of my life and trust me, its not all that. always cold, nothing to wear(cause you dont fill out your clothes), always sick, etc. Nowadays Ive got me some cruves and i LOVE them!

Woman should be proud of their curves!

Karen said...

Aw.. bull semen and crocodile fat? This post is an eye-opener for us girls. I learned a lot about the oppression and objectification of women across the world in one of my Psychology classes.. the facts show how societies and the media degrade women and force them to feel insecure and lacking. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome post! I wish more women would appreciate themselves the way they are. So they wouldn't have to work so hard (and use crazy products!) and be so hard on themselves, to be something they aren't.

Miss Krimson said...
