I decided to kill Superwoman because she sucks and I hate her. I am not talking about the babe that flies about in spandex saving puppies and small children. I'm talking about this crazy idea that we have to do everything and everything we do has to be SUPER! The problem is that when we buy into this superwoman foolishness, we end up focusing our time and energy on stuff we really don't care about.
Yes, we have to raise our children, but do we have to enroll them in every extra-cirricular brain-boosting activitiy just because some tv magazine told us our kids may be idiots? Also what woman wants to look older than they are (teenaged girls not included), but do we really need foundation you apply on with a mini paint-roller? Come on! Now there is a make-up campaign that suggests we should want to look airbrushed. Having clear skin is not enough anymore - you should look like you have been photo-shopped. What the ...WHAT?
Don't get me started on body image concepts. According to supermarket aisle magazines my boobs are too droopy and small, my butt is too flat, my teeth aren't white enough and my breath doesn't make me kissable. Speaking of kissing, they even go as far as suggesting that I am not pleasing my husband in the bedroom just because I wear sweatpants to bed! How dare you magazines, how - dare- YOU!
I know we don't buy into the superwoman image all the time, but if we are not being aware and careful, out of the blue we will find ourselves wondering what it would look like if we had butt implants.
