Whitney Houston: Strangely Starting to Make Sense

This post technically isn't about Whitney (sorry), but it was a convenient lead in, so. . . . i apologize for misleading you. Actually, i don't care.

OK, I'm going to type some lyrics up and i hope that as you read them, you are singing on the inside, but preferably on the outside.

I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess insiiiiiiiiiiiiiide. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. . . . . . . blah blah blah. How about instead of giving them a sense of pride, we do this.

For those of you (probably all of you) too lazy to click on the link and read it, i'll give you a brief synopsis (yes i realize "brief synopsis" is redundant, but i wanted to emphasize how brief the synopsis would be).

Retouching school photos.

Parents. Let me get this straight. Instead of trying to make your kid feel special, you decide to go and edit out a birthmark that is permanently on his/her/mark's face. It's cool, it's cool. I mean, why would you ever want to make your kid proud of who he/she is? That's crazy. It would probably be more beneficial to have them worry about a physical trait they have no control over.

I applaud you for your "think outside the box" attitude. You really are thinking ahead. Ahead to a time when instead of editing your child's disfigurements in a photo, you could just edit your actual child, maybe even discard them if they didn't live up to your standards.

To tell you the truth, this disgusts about as much baby beauty pageants, which may be my next post.
