Honestly, if I were her I’d be more concerned about my husband letting his eyes wander than about what I’m wearing. I mean, its one thing to look, its another to start lusting after someone. I don’t dress like I’m wanting to “get it on” because frankly some of those skimpy outfits are extremely uncomfortable. I get frustrated when religious folk say that my shirts, or jeans, are causing problems with their walk. Its like, uhm, hello.. that’s not my sin problem, those are your issues there. I wear what I wear because its comfortable. If yoga pants happen to be comfortable to me, then I wear them. And I do wear them!
I’m also a strong follower of wearing what suits your body type and skin tone. I like to look my best so I will wear what cut, color, and style work best for my physical appearance.

oye.. why do people bother trying to predict this stuff… with every major disaster and event in this country’s history–from collapsing economies, buildings blowing up, social changes etc.. there’s always been someone claiming the end times are immanent. why concern yourself with this when you can be doing other things? As long as you’re following God and are right in His eyes, what does it matter?
I used to be one caught up in all this, but after reading several times, throughout history, of people claiming the end was immanent because of some sudden change–and it proving not to be the case, I got extremely fed up with these claims and just gave up. I remember, in my own lifetime, the 1999 Y2K. everyone was so scared that the end was coming, that our economy would crash because the counters would mess up.. or the whole 2012 thing… *looks around* still looks like everything’s here…
There is a cycle to everything.. civilizations rise to their utmost and then they fall.. things grow and then they die.. over and over throughout history.. the same pattern. So what makes this country’s, heck this ERA’s, pattern any different?
Shrugs...so you can't bear the speculation....so don't. You're right, as long as you are following God it matters less. BUT if there are horrible things to come that I have to deal with....I'd like to keep my radar up if you want to be broadsided or more likely if you want to wait till more evidence is in....that's totally understandable.
Some of us are different...we don't mind speculating and comparing the world around us with the scriptures. Some are trying to narrow down the exact time...which I think is fruitless as the bible says we won't really know for sure. But I do think we are probably in the "season" of the end times and all that goes on bears watching....
I totally respect your point of view but I prefer a slightly different way of dealing with things...

Okay.. people keep saying that the photoshopped is ugly, that she was prettier before. I agree that she looked better natural. but uhm, I’m 5’8.5″ and 117 (natural measurements–been like this all my life) I look like the photoshopped without being photoshopped.. (proportion-wise, and I could probably hair and make up wise if I tried.) It just sickens me that we gotta put down one body size over another to feel better about ourselves. I’m sick and tired of those “real men like curvy girls” or “real men like skinny girls” can we just accept the fact that beauty is in the eye of the beholder? honestly. Why not in clothing shops have mannequins of all body shapes and outfit choices that accentuate one’s best features? or look good on a certain body type. there are certain colors I can’t wear with my skin tone and certain cuts that do nothing but make me look even more like a rail. I get tired of people saying just because one is skinny they can wear anything. NOT TRUE. I have nothing against people who are a heavier weight than me, but I don’t understand why they have to bash me about my size? Or make it seem like no one finds me attractive? I don’t get that one bit.
Real men don't prefer any particular body type. We prefer intelligent, engaging, strong of heart and mind women that can engage with and challenge us. Women that make us want to be a better man. My wife was a size 0 when we started out together. From illness and medications she is now a 22 and just as beautiful as she was 27 years ago. I still enjoy watching her dress every morning.
It's false, unhealthy body images being foisted on the public by photo modification that many of us object to. The average woman is a size 14 to 16, and these types of photo modifications make peoples expectations unrealistic and generally unobtainable. They even repositioned and resized her eyes and nostrils not to mention lengthening her arms and legs!
Anyone bashing a woman about her size, or saying that she is unattractive simply because of her size or body type is a fool, and probably a lonely fool that could stand to take a long hard look in a mirror.

OMG thank you!!! I’m 24 almost 25. And it makes me so proud that there are indeed people in my generation that are in touch with their brains. Most just don’t care. they say screw politicians and their politics yet whine when they see their freedoms taken away..
but thank you. It makes me feel wonderful that there are individuals like myself out there that think this is ridiculous. beyond ridiculous.. more like psychotic to think the Affordable Care Act is a good thing..

While I agree her actions were rather foolish.. I don’t believe that ALL women should be lumped in with this.. and I DONT agree that men should be taught NOT to get married, but if they should choose this relationship to go in eyes open. A healthy relationship is taking care of eachother not looking out for #1. Its a mutual understanding.
I am blessed to have a man who loves me enough to sacrifice his nights to work hard and in return I supply him with a warm, welcoming home supplied with all the food he could ever crave. I also have a side part time job I work to help out.. so he doesn’t have to work as hard. Marriages take 2 people.. but even so.. marriage is sharing one life together.. if you can’t uphold that.. DONT DATE EITHER! DONT EVEN GO DOWN THAT ROAD. I’d rather see a whole group of men obstain than a bunch of pigs sleeping around with whatever they see and afraid of commitment.
I see too many people end marriages over stupid crap and I’m tired of it. My man and I get into fights from time to time, but honestly, who doesn’t?? What really matters is what you do next… will you either fix or destroy? Thats what love is.. =/
I am disappointed in both of them.. I am disappointed in her for her ridiculous behavior and I’m disappointed in him for shaming her like that with a viral video. This should have been kept privately. =/ Its embarrassing.
And I am disappointed in the men on here that are practicaly saying to noose women.. go suck an egg.

I don’t want to get into a sex battle.. or anything.. kind of stupid to do so. I won’t agree with a side based on my emotions.. in court cases its evidence. if my brother did something, I would still hold him to the same standard as another not of my family.. there is no exclusion. Its true women are emotional.. but thats what compliments us so well to you men. We are your comforters and we nurture your children. Its not a battle of who’s better. Its not even a battle at all. We are made to compliment.. and when we go against “nature” and be creative.. we run into complications.
Women can offer amazing suggestions. Men can lead incredibly.. we just gotta relearn the system based on helping.. not hindering.. or belittling..
July 12, 2013 at 8:28pm
Hey whoa whoa whoa.. some females out there actually do have brains their domes.. (like me) I’d take the sides depending on the forensic evidence. I could care less if he was black or white.. or whatever his level of status is.. don’t claim we are ALL like that..
July 5, 2013 at 3:55pm
I’m trying to be calm while looking at a lot of these comments.. I agree that my generation is in sorry shape, but I am glad there are those who got their heads on straight like me and don’t screw with their lives and are active in restoring this nation.. so please, will you give at least some acknowledgement rather than calling ALL kids stupid like you have been?? remember, you were a kid too… your generation and those before you played rolls in the nations demise as well.. don’t forget that.
July 5, 2013 at 3:49pm
those who say you weep for this generation.. don’t use these foolish ones to represent us.. there are those like myself who have decency and actually care about the state of our nation. Its the older generations who think that we can’t care about the nation like they do, that drive me up a wall. We may be a few, but we are out there.. so please.. don’t use this garbage to represent us as a whole. Thank you.

I’ve run into the same problem.. back in 2008 I came down with a severe case of mono that left me clinging for my life. Since then I’ve been dealing with severe bouts of PTSD that can drastically interfere with my life at any given moment. I’ve been to several doctors and have been perscribed slews of anti-depressant drugs, but after seeing what they do to my brother, I don’t dare take them. unfortunately this cuts into my percentage of getting hired..
I am 24, and caucasian female and even if I do get into the 3 or 5 most likely candidates, employers are most likely taking those with less experience and those of a minority race.. (nothing against anyone who is not white. I love you all. just stating a fact lol) so I’ve applied many times to places only to get rejected.. it hurts.. but I keep trying.. taking up little things here and there to help out my husband, but I have yet to find anything really stable.

@Groundzero: That is a rather interesting angle.. can you provide some credible links that lead you to believe what you do? thanks!
July 2, 2013 at 3:19pm
@Kick, uhm.. I happen to like trends and i do watch current styles.. but I have a brain and can tell what will work for me, what has worked for me, and what doesn’t work for me.. If i look the best in blue, pink, and purple. I will buy those colors.. I won’t go out and buy a lime green or lemon yellow something just because its in style. I look at the item, try it on and if it doesn’t work it doesn’t work.. I believe that is how fashion should be looked at.. you should be more concerned on finding what colors work best for you and what cuts and fits will accentuate rather than take away. I have several pieces from my great, great grandma I mix with current things to have a unique flare and also because they have worked for so long.. so to say all those who keep up with trends are fake and shallow.. that says a lot about one’s character as well.. =/ fashion is artistic expression.
July 2, 2013 at 3:12pm
im right there too.. i pay like 3.74.. i dont know how that is good.. needs to go back under a dollar before i say its good lol
June 22, 2013 at 12:56pm
mad world, no? its depressing. =/
June 22, 2013 at 12:54pm
lol, @cofemale. yeah. I’ve been saying this for quite some time.. since I was in 8th grade or so back in 2000. Its caused my lots of ridicule from my peers, but I am thankful to be one of the few of my age awake to what’s happening around us. I hope to meet more like me.
June 22, 2013 at 12:50pm
yup! right there with you. double standards need to come to a close. honestly.
June 22, 2013 at 12:48pm
Totally. I 100% agree. I’m a blend of native american, and european.. and I’m not hating on the early settlers for what some of them did to my people hundreds of years ago.. its completely ludicrous.
June 22, 2013 at 12:43pm
See.. its this double standard ludicrous behavior that disturbs me the most. People taking advantage of the victim card and playing it super hard. You can say one thing amongst your people be totally fine, but if someone who is not like you uses it, its not cool.. but yet you feel you have the God-given right to offend that other person with racial slurs of your own.. when will people get off this victim band wagon and start pulling their own weight around?
You weren’t alive back then, you’re alive today. Live in today NOT the past.
These so called ‘Prides’ are destroying us. be confident in who you are, but please don’t take it to this extreme..
Self-entitlement needs to seriously come to a close.
