Isn’t it funny how the rules change when it’s someone you’re ‘allowed’ to hate?
Which culture to we REALLY live in?
A Kardashian-esque superficial beauty-and-perfection-obsessed culture like what we see in Hollywood and on Instagram?
Or the #NoFilter be-proud-of-who-you-are culture that aggressively celebrates plus-sized models, young boys being makeup models, and a naked Dunham eating an entire cake while sitting on a toilet?
Because we can’t really have it both ways.
Dove Soap’s #BeautyBias campaign is in direct conflict with ‘agism’ and fat shaming.
And our news cycle gives us the perfect contrast.
A Playboy bunny, Dani Mathers, had to see a naked senior citizen changing at the gym.
Oh, poor dear. The horror. Can you imagine? A 70-year old woman had the nerve to be invested in her health and even expected her privacy to be respected in the change room. #SafeSpace
Mathers was so offended by coming face-to-face with what time can do to all of us, that she took a picture of the unsuspecting woman — completely naked — and she shared it on her social media. With the caption “If I can’t unsee this, then you can’t either’.
That’s a #MeToo moment that you can’t pin on any guy.
Mathers was given community service, 240 hours of graffiti removal, and would have received 45 days jail time if she didn’t meet her deadline. (She barely finished on time.)
Meanwhile, in Washington, a room full of reporters centered on the medical report of a 70-year-old man.
The doctor was up-front about his hope that the President would commit to physical activity, and continue to improve his diet. But overall, he was only about 10 pounds heavier than the medically recommended target, and overall, is in remarkably good health for his age.
Despite this very transparent, and open report being quite positive overall, the glass-half-empty press was fixated on his weight.
This is the same press that hailed Hillary as a fashion icon.
Do you think they would have DARED to be weight-obsessed had the election gone the other way?
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
