  • Society: A guy should be muscular and fit and has to be the noblest of men.
  • Me: He has to have cheekbones. Very prominent cheekbones-
  • Society: ...
  • Me: -and he has to have a British accent-
  • Society: ...
  • Me: -and a dark or mysterious personality.
  • Society: ...
  • Me: ...
  • Society: ...
  • Me: ...
  • BBC: (evil laughter) World domination has begun.

Every time I see this I get really irritated. Not because of fangirl reasons. 

I mean, is it such a bad thing to find people attractive that are not babes’ like all these pumped up and photoshopped models? 

Is it really so bad that people find more average looking people very attractive?

Because i don’t think so. I think it’s pretty good that society starts appreciating people who don’t fit the norm that has been labeled as perfect. 

This generation is starting to be openly comfortable about being attracted to people with very characteristic looks and behaviour that are obivously unique to every person. (No matter if they look like models or not)

I’m not writing this with the intention to insult anyone. I’m just trying to make something clear about ‘les gouts et les colours ne discutent pas’. 

Is that really such a bad thing?

  • So, my friend and I were walking around in this shopping center in the UK, and we saw BBC written on some windows...
  • Friend: What are you looking at?
  • Me: I wonder if I start shouting for a fourth season of Sherlock, would they make it quicker?
  • Friend: ...
  • Me: Or maybe I should throw something.
  • Me: Like mY BLOODY HEART
