I've been menaing to write my thoughts about this for ages and have finnaly gotten round to it but as a result the article I'll be referencing is kind of old now.
The other week I was reading the supplement magazine in the weekend edition of the guardian. An article about make up was featured in the first few pages and in this article was a sentence that has really annoyed me.
"Clean, mud-and-dried-ketchup-free skin is the cornerstone of being more bonkable."
Why is it society is so obbsessed with being more "bonkable". Is this the mark of what a succsesful women is,to be "bonkable"?
It really annoys me to see things like this, because it just gives the impression that this is what women should be aiming for. Then if a women achieves this "bonkable-ness" she is called a slut, a slag, a whore.
It's bad enough that society implies that a womens worth is determined by her "bonkable-ness" but then to be hypocritical about it and turn around and judge her for achieveing the very thing they encourage.
I don't understand it and I was wondering what other people think about it. Could anyone shed some light on this situation?
Here is the link to the whole article for anyone interested:http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/oct/09/grace-dent-make-...
