Flash vs. Class: Feminism and Success

Today, my 84-year-old boss came into the office and said, “You stay conservative!  I just saw this woman… this 40-year-old woman…” and then he  proceeded to move his arms around his body in disbelief.


I’m going to assume she looked like this to get my point across.

I understood immediately what he meant with the temperature reaching 100 today in New Jersey.

Concepts that are being severely neglected these days by women, both young and old: Class.  Being conservative.  Being a lady.  Demure.  Less is more.


I mean, look at this role model for instance.

Girls these days are given role models who flash their breasts and demand to be respected.  This is liberating, right?  Wrong.

Being a woman, a strong woman, requires brains and some argue beauty.

Young girls should start off with getting an education.

Go to school, get a degree, and take jobs from the over-paid man.  Yes, I mean the man and the man.

If more women were in political office and making the changes in policies that shape our country, there would be no argument over what healthcare women should be provided with.  There would be no questioning and no redefining what rape is.

But how will this be possible if women are portrayed as “sluts” and “hoes” on every media station?  Shows like Teen Mom and Keeping Up With the Kardashians are celebrating women who sleep around, get sloppy, and act irresponsible for fame.

These women become role models.  The level of exposure they have on young girls is frightening.

Kim Kardashian should not be held up onto any peddle stool:  She was a drunk socialite who leaked her own sex tape for fame and fortune.  Television shows should not be rewarded for bad behavior.


I mean, this is attractive, right?

Our rights as women are being constantly challenged and yet young girls are dressing like “hoes,” which is labeled as very trendy.


These were the wild women and their knees are barely showing.

Sad, isn’t it?

And women are now flashing their breasts in order to gain “freedom.”  FEMEN, I’m talking about you.  Flashing your breasts will not help rape victims and it does not open any doors for the advancement of women.

With massive profits being raked in from Girls Gone Wild and half naked celebrity performances on cable television, your breasts will not be making any changes.  Unless you’ve been gifted with super powered breasts that make change happen.

      1. Yes. What you said is agreeable. It may be difficult with what our world is becoming into in the entertainment industry since the urge to earn money is very appealing. In my perspective, putting better role models in the spotlight will bring so much more worth than wealth. In reality, we don`t just need better role models that are female, we are in need of better role models in industries that has the capability to influence many people. Nevertheless, it`s a great thing that the world changes everyday. We might never know, there will be a time wherein the shows on televisions will air more value-oriented programs.

  1. I think people should be allowed to dress in any manner they choose but there are weird rules everywhere. Encouraging people to dress, and more importantly, act whorish isn’t going to help anyone get ahead culturally. Likewise, forcing someone to be conservative because it’s the “right thing” to do makes me equally unhappy. I’ll admit that I get a little sad when I see someone people scantly clad, but I try not to let it get me down.

    I want to see beautiful young woman and beautiful old women dressing confidently. But, you’re right, we need better role models. Being flashy and dumb is way too high on everyone’s list of priorities.

    1. I agree with you. Confidence is the sexiest thing, but if the only things a woman or girl have in their closet are mini dresses and 5-inch heels… They need to class it up.
