That was awesome. It makes me sad that being pretty is pushed as being more important than being smart by virtually every angle of society.

I was watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding the other night. In this particular society, the girls leave school at... 12, maybe, or a bit younger. They're all so obsessed with the hair and the spray tans and the rhinestones. They had one girl in particular, who had to attend an hour of home schooling a week to satisfy the law where she was from, and she went to her school's prom. The voice over said that she hadn't yet found out she had not only passed almost all her tests, but had scored very high in some of them, which is a rarity for these girls. Cut to the girl who, when asked what she wants in the future says brightly and seriously, "To drive an Audi... and get a boob job."

MAN TLC WHY YOU GOTTA BE ALL DEPRESSING. I JUST WANTED TO SEE SOME FABULOUS DRESSES.
