Jordan had to write something to her next year's teacher that would describe her. This is what she wrote.
Who is energetic, very athletic, caring and funny.
Who is sister to Kyle, my brother.
Who loves cheese and the color green.
Who feels happy all of the time.
Who needs my best friend.
Who gives respect to other people.
Who fears what other people think about me.
Who would like to see New Zealand.
Who shares laughs with people.
Who is a hard working athlete.
Oh baby girl. I love you so much.
...Who fears what other people think about me. That line hit me hard. Gonna work on that one.
The focus of my senior thesis is on sexual objectification and the impact it has on us, especially girls. Media, advertising, barbies, bratz dolls, beauty magazines etc....are all evil vehicles for our society's impossible ideal. Girls are being pushed to reach perfection instead of encouraged to accept themselves as perfect just the way they are. I am on a mission to save our girls. For my girl. Which is why this song makes me cry every. single. time.
