If you haven’t already taken a look at this petition I urge you to do so and if you agree with it sign it. If not leave any comments that you have with me at

coliciscurable211@yahoo.com

Once again this is an actual campaign backed by an actual organization (media watch) ( check out mediawatch.com). This petition will be sent along with a 10 minute interview that was recently recorded in light of this band. The interview was taped by ex model and co founder of mediawatch Ann Simonton and it includes Sally Green one of the program managers for Girls For a Change a national organization that empowers young women as well as me now up for position on National Board of Directors. It will later include several opinions of men as well and will then be sent to Geffen Records the main sponsor for Girlicious.

This is a worthy cause because it seems as if the world has had enough media junk. Check out these statistics

-Media do not accurately reflect the gender balance in the American population (51 percent women, 49 percent men).

According to the Girls Incorporated Media Literacy Board…

 

-frequent music video viewing can be a risk factor for weight concerns among girls and young women.

One content analysis of 21 popular young women’s magazine

covers showed that 78 percent contained a message about

bodily appearance. None (0%) of young men’s magazines

contained such messages. Also, 26 percent of women’s

magazine covers contained conflicting messages (e.g.,

a message about losing weight next to a cookie recipe)

regarding weight loss and dietary habits.18

-A 1999 poll of 8- to 18- year-olds found that Audio media make up 28 percent of the average girl’s and 20 percent of the average boy’s media usage.

Please vote now. In the case of Girlicious all of these statistics apply

Public Displays of Affection August 20, 2008

Filed under: Passion, Timeless — LittleMissSavingTheWorld @ 7:10 pm

There’s something to be said for the couple that kisses in the middle of the road. The couple that holds hands and makes puckered faces at each other all the while walking past plenty of other happy civilians. But I can’t quite find the words.

Part of me finds this practice disturbing, why must your private bussiness become public? Why on earth should the rest of us suffer because of your happiness. Children walking down the street with their parents face a bitter and awkward moment as the couple that was hugging two minutes ago, continues to hug. Parents try not to stare and singles roll their eyes even though most of them are joyous all by themselves.

While many of us don’t need someone there’s still a word to describe public displays of affection. While many of us don’t need anyone but would love someone to talk to, the couples continue to flourish and enjoy their lives. The breakups continue yet the word.

That single word that I’m looking for; the one on the tip of my tongue. Well it remains useless as it hesitates to come pouring out.

And what’s to be said of that couple. The one that will break up, make up and endure above all, aside from disgust is a word that captures their state of being perfectly.

Rapturous. Full of feeling and in love are what they are. But it hinders the rest of us does it not?

Somehow seeing someone else so caught up makes me nauseous just because they could be doing so much more with their lives. However, I realize now that the love keeps them alive in a way. It keeps our souls from dying out and rotting and it gives us a way to make the world a better place. After all if we all hated each other what kind of world would that make this?

A horrid one where nothing got accomplished. So I say this, of the couple kissing in the middle of the road; let them be. Let them love and let them lose; let them experience. For it is the experiences of the world that make us so rich.

 
 

Breaking the Ice August 19, 2008

Filed under: Timeless — LittleMissSavingTheWorld @ 11:33 pm

It has occurred to me a long while ago that ice cream is not the healthiest dinner in the world. It’s divine creamy goodness just doesn’t quite surpass the consequences that a few bites can come with.

The lactose lining your intestines, the cholesterol building within your arteries, yet I continue to eat it. Not often, but on occasion I’ll take a few bites out of the carton and toss it back in the freezer unsatisfied to say the least but unwilling to go back for more.

The texture makes me happy, creamy against my palet yet I don’t eat it for the taste, nor do I eat it for the pleasant consequences that I will feel after.

No I eat ice cream as a form of rebellion. Yes, rebellion. There’s nothing like a person eating comfort food especially a woman and not feeling bad about herself after, to scream rebellion.

And it’s about time. It’s about time that anyone and everyone all around the world, male or female enjoy their lives, eating what we want without worrying that we’ll never look like that person on TV. After all statistics taken by various college media studies groups suggest that 25% of actors or actresses were below average size.

Yet, no one seems to believe it. According to a UK health group’s statistic 19% of people were over weight but 69% of people reportedly wanted to lose weight despite their average sizes.

All I’m saying is that it’s time for the world to hang up their obsession with looking like rockstars and it’s time for us to take a stance. It’s time for us to rebel and love ourselves for what and who we are.

Not beating around the bush

Filed under: Social Change Agents, Timeless — LittleMissSavingTheWorld @ 6:00 pm

People don’t want to be told how to live and by all means I’m not doing that. These are suggestions for what’s come to be known as a better way of life. A more substancial and less consequencial life.  And while we’re alive why not help the planet out while helping ourselves out? If we have the opportunity to help the world that we all live on then why on earth don’t we?

Tactful Feedback is always welcome.

 
 

Disrupt the Trend August 13, 2008

Filed under: Passion, Reviews for TTROW, Social Change Agents, Timeless — LittleMissSavingTheWorld @ 10:55 pm

Typing on a computer had never been so easy, my hands never so agile as they were on those keys and then she said it. The words hit me like a Freight train; fast and hard. ” I’m not doing anything with my life, I’ll just marry rich and have it all provided for me.” She said that. One of the most intelligent young women I had met, one with an extensive vocabulary and the most bizarrely beautiful mind I had ever known. She said that and suddenly I stopped typing.

” What?” She paused and gazed at me as if I had a hearing disability of some kind. ” I don’t want to be like you I want to get married.” What was that supposed to mean? Her tone didn’t suggest anything similar to a slight. ” Yes that’s all good and well but still. What will you do with your life aside from getting married? Just sit around?” She continued to look at me, completely serious. ” Yep.” ” But you’re so intelligent why?” The conversation continued for about five more minutes with her concluding that she was stupid and thus would need to get a man.

I was completely taken aback, astonished that such a blossoming young woman would consider herself in such a negative manner. I understand and understood at the time that only 23% of young women actually loved themselves but I never thought of self-loathing as the excessive luxury that it now is.

Why is that? Why is it that women everywhere, women and men alike have created a society where an absurd amount of modesty means that a woman can no longer say that she loves herself? Why is it that when a lady is in a circle of friends and the topic happens to magically dance onto diets that if you’re not on one you’re bragging?

Personally I believe that we’re all beautiful in our own ways and if some guy can’t see that then that’s his problem but if you can’t see it then you’re in way deeper than you know. After all the first step to any form of satisfaction is to love yourself.
