yesterday a friend of mine tweeted that anyone who uses instagram were self-conscious. i was like w a t the fuck. asked him about it and he said because there were people who were using it to appear fairer, etc. do you think he was right to call out on this? i said it wasnt the individuals fault that the media has dumb standards of beauty, i dont think it makes what theyre doing wrong (making themselves look fairer), i mean how can you be mad at someone who's self-conscious? theyre just unaware and that if theyre not harming anyone, there are more things to worry about.
this friend of mine is always saying stupid shit (eg. about mainstream music, about mainstream this that, about religion =/= man's interpretation of religion, does anyone really know the benefits of healthy eating and exercise like i do??, etc.) and i cant help but argue with him but my bf says it's not gonna help anything lol. he says "people try to make themselves feel important in different ways, and that is his way".
