So some lady is offended by a Billboard in Glenview showing some woman on a beach with arrows pointing out improvements on her body courtesy of a beauty salon medical day spa. She is now campaigning to have it removed (the billboard not her body) and for that I say there are 20 million other campaigns she could be heading that are not as time wasting as this one.
There are a bunch of billboards out there that bother me (like the Giordano’s one cuz it makes me want a very fattening delicious yummy pizza) but you know what, you have to choose your battles.
I guess I shouldn’t be judging her too harshly if this is the battle she chose but I would think sex offenders, education, the war, global warming, the enviorment, gas prices, politics, religion (although politics and religion could be combined with some of these other topics) just to name a few are worthy enough causes.
Her argument is that teenage girls should not grow up thinking that they are judged by their appearances. I hate to wake her up to reality but the cat is out of the bag! Just pick up a magazine, watch TV or go see a movie. Is it right? No, but in this day and age I’d rather know I can go somewhere to have minor things that make me self-conscious improved. Teenage girls will be subjected to judgments at school by guess who? Other Teenagers… I don’t want to trivialize peer pressure because I know it’s getting worse but if this lady has a daughter imagine what she’s going through now when her friends find out what her mom is doing…
If she hadn’t decided to pick this crusade I and the rest of the state would not have been aware of this billboard. FREE ADVERTISING! :o) I’m seriously writing the Docs name down so that I can save it for later… who am I kidding I need it now!
