“Honey Boo Boo’s Mama, June Shannon weds Sugar Bear 9 years after meeting online”
I have seen many articles and TV segments about this lately. There are a few things that are really bothering me about how the press is conveying this story:
They met in an online chat room. The amount of people today who meet significant others online is higher than it ever has been. I think this is awesome! Why would we not want other people to connect with someone they enjoy talking to. This also helps to take physical appearance out of the picture. People are falling in love because they enjoy the conversations they are having.
People have been raging on the wedding attire and decor. I think every bride should feel beautiful on her wedding day. There are many typical bridal dresses I think are ugly, but a bride needs to wear what she feels beautiful in. I don’t mind her dress at all and I think it is a very flattering cut on her. Why does anyone feel it is acceptable to say negative things about what she is wearing. Every bride has the right to feel beautiful, hop off!
Appearance vs words. I REALLY bothers me how people feel it is ok to comment about how “gross” they feel the family is. I think the family is really fucking awesome! They have so much love for each other and it shows. These were the comments June Shannon had about her wedding:
“The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it”
“I felt like it was importnat for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear”
“We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!”
“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” she advised. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”
“because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
If every parent felt this way, we would have a much better world.
I REALLY REALLY hate when people say they are stupid. Lets all remember that she arranged for TLC to directly deposit all the money into 5 different trust funds she set up: 4 for her daughters and 1 for her granddaughter. The girls can not touch the money until they turn 21 with exceptions for school and medical emergencies.
The thin privilege comments that center around this family are disgusting. The only thing you have to comment on is their weight and how it is “unhealthy”? These comments are directly coming from the fact that people can’t find any other way to criticize her parenting style and it annoys them. I wish people focused as much about their own families as they do about this family. This family is happy. Go away and let them raise their children how they want to.
Right now I want to be curled up in your arms as I listen to your breath in my ear and the sound of rain hitting the porch outside. I want to feel every part of you touching my back. I want to be in the comfort of your arms. I want to feel your face leaning against my right cheek. There is no where I feel safer and more at home.
Let me tell you something about Mitt Romney. We were best friends in middle school. I know, right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even… Whatever. So then in 8th grade, I started hanging out with the current President Obama who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to DC, and Mitt was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow him off to listen to Obama speak, he’d be like, “Why didn’t you support my idea?” And I’d be like, “Why are you so ignorant of America’s needs?” So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-Democrats pool party, I was like, ‘Mitt, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re a Republican.’ I mean I couldn’t have a Republican at my party. There were going to be Democrats there with their human rights. I mean, right? He was a REPUBLICAN. So then his mom called my mom and started yelling at her, it was so ridiculous. And then he dropped out of politics because no one would talk to him, and came back in the fall for the presidential election, all of his hair was cut off and he was totally weird, and now I guess he’s trying to make airplane windows roll down.
REAL women with real shapes have figured in ad campaigns for years, with brands such as Dove and M&S showing the female form as nature intended.
But what about the fellas? Instead of realistic role models, they are still faced with images of perfectly sculpted males modelling boxers beneath impossibly taut six-packs. This month saw David Beckham striking yet more smouldering poses to plug his new H&M undies range. Here, JENNY FRANCIS meets four brave UK Sun readers who posed in their pants to try to recreate the famous ads.
Dolce & Gabbana,John Doe vs. David Gandy
You know how incredibly sexy David Beckham looks in those underwear ads? Well, the Sun flips those images on its head with a photo shoot of real men posing in the similar set ups. The question is, are you just as sold (or turned on) by these men as you are by the models they replaced? Check out the four shots below and let us know what you prefer: John Doe or David Gandy.
“Just two weeks after getting married the day after DOMA was declared unconstitutional, newlyweds Daisy and Stefanie Boyd-Berks welcomed a daughter to the world. Ellis Lee was both conceived and brought into the world with love. Her conception and birth is an inspiration to other gay and lesbian couples dreaming of a family. Because with love, all things are possible.”
