Yes, I do why because of multiple reason. After reading the poem “Barbie Doll” it made me think that we as Americans worry about our appearance a little too much. That should be the last thing on our mind. Me as a person I don’t get into appearance to much because who’s cares what others think. people in general make me mad cause they think people should look a certain way because of this and its miserable. People in America have their own unique style of dressing and looking a certain way. Let people be who they want to be as a person. Judging people off their appearance is erroneous. In my opinion looks are not a factor, who’s cares what a person looks like I mean I care but it doesn’t matter as long a person can vibe with you it shouldn’t matter.

You are telling a person “They don’t look good” is telling them they’re not wanted in this society and everyone is welcome because the good lord made all as one. In the poem “Barbie Doll” the first stanza first line states “the girl was born unusual”. This first line made me think why they would say she is an unusual child cause of the way she was born. She is different when she was born. She is not different, she is just like we are all Americans. She can’t help she was born that way. Its in her genetics.

Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Beauty standards play a big role in our society, if you don’t uphold to these standards people place on us we are not welcome. You are inadequate, especially with us being in an age where social media is a predominant part of our lives. Men and women must look a certain way just to “fit in”. if you ask me is just a bunch of horse crap. People do this because people doesn’t appreciate individuality.

People say they do but they frown upon those who look different or dress different. As generation we look up to people that are famous and follow what they do, and it became a trend. Social media plays a big part in beauty standards. For example, men get the latest haircuts to look like a certain football or basketball player. All guys dyed their hair blonde or got curly hair like Odell. Females wear bundles and get fake bodies parts or body enhancements to look like Amour Jayda or Miracle Watts. Its all big cycle of monkey see monkey do. Beauty standards are a major role in U.S. alone. In the “Barbie Doll” it stated that “she cut her off her nose and legs” she was trying to improve her body, so she can look like the rest of the females she was probably hanging out with because they were probably talking about her. Which is fake cause I can’t surround myself with a bunch fake people. People should stop putting so much on beauty, its tearing people apart in ways you can’t imagine. Beauty is probably in top ten reason people killed themselves because they don’t fit in with other because of their looks or the way there was born. And these commercial on tv are no better then social media.

These commercials put a lot pf pressure on men and females every day and don’t even know it. They probably just think it just for marketing purposes but its not its tearing our youth and young adults up. Commercials like CoverGirl, L’Oréal Paris, and Revlon all have mentality brainwash people mind’s. People see these commercial everyday a get this understanding that they must look like this, and that’s not true then you should be yourself. All these people are doing is creating people to have low-self-esteem and that’s another bad cause to people killing their self in the U.S. the poem “Barbie Doll” said “In the casket displayed on satin she lay” was saying she was killing herself because she was continuing to please everyone else by her looks when all she should have done was be herself. People with power who own all these big-time businesses should take in consideration these stuffs they are putting out is hurting us. But not to mention these fashion websites and these designer models is hurting us to. These websites that show off these models in their clothes make the women and men want to buy their clothes. Because they see how the clothes fit them. So that when people start thinking they maybe got to get in shape just to try to look like them its all a repeating cycle of monkey see monkey do. All these reasons are all gone become emotional pain to people. All these standards are really becoming more persuasive, and so do woman and young girls with low self-worth.

I say this because looking at society and social media outlets we see that everyone wants to fit in. people no matter what age group want to be accepted as a beautiful person. The reason being is because of American standard on beauty. When I evaluate the standards of American beauty I see that their prime example of beauty is the model Kim Kardashian and as males they want to look like rappers such as the rap group Migos etc. Women think they supposed to look like such and such but it false information. You came into this world to be who you want to be and do what you want to be beautiful on you’re a shouldn’t care what other say. In the “Barbie Doll” poem the author establish that the girl was “She was healthy, tested intelligent, possessed strong arms and back, abundant sexual drive and manual dexterity”.

The girl was healthy and a good looking female and she smart posed a strong presence when she walks in. she has a strong sex drive and dexterity which some men look for in women. She thinks she has look and feel a certain to be accepted in her society. She should have to get a body enhancement just to be someone. Just be yourself at the end of the day and if they can’t accept it then rock alone. You shouldn’t have to change yourself just fit in with other that welcome either. All these beauty standard is creating mental problems that’s leading to women and men. Eating disorder women starving their selves and mentality hurting theirselves just to fit in with society.
