• Sarah Jessica Parker gets shit because of her mole or lack thereof.
• Rumer Willis (Bruce’s daughter) gets shit because of her chin.
• Katie Holmes gets shit because of her height. She is all of five-nine, which causes her to call herself “a big one,” and to consider her height an “imperfection.”
Is this really what we want to be doing to half the human race? Really? I walked past a salon recently on a very chic street in Boston (I visited friends over the Fourth of July) where one of the services offered was “eye brightening,” and I thought: What the fuck, now the whites of my eyes aren’t bright enough? They found another part of our bodies that women should be ashamed of, and can pay a fortune to “fix”?
Or am I just particularly sensitive to all this because I, like poor Katie, am also five-nine, and never realized before that I was supposed to be considering myself a freak?
