Girls are being influenced by models on magazines and Abercrombie & Fitch advertisements. The clothing and the amounts of makeup these girls wear are not cheap and are showing girls that, to be beautiful you must own these shoes or products. Girls and women spend over $100 a month on makeup and other “beauty” products and spend about two hours a day applying them. If I could change anything about our culture it would be to not set a price and size on beauty standards. I see too many young girls in high school that think they need to be skinnier or look a certain way to get friends and be popular.
These young girls with every pageant also have to wear pounds of makeup, false lashes, have the hair on their skins waxed, wear high heels, which basically, are not designed for small feet; some also have to wear fake hair and even fake teeth. Shockingly, one mother even injects her eight year old child Botox from time to time all in the name of beauty pageants. Pageants are too focused on the exterior and pose a risk at leaving a lot of women with lower self-esteem in the later stages, especially since the competitions are focused on being prettier in comparison to the other contestant which is something girls and women already struggle enough with, growing up in a society that tells women they need to be beautiful to be loved, wanted or

Her background is amazing, I like it a lot. The way her aunt basically raised her, her starting to do photo shoots at age six, the description about building up a poker face – it's gripping but doesn't seem unrealistic or overdone. Her cooking hobby but not being able to eat the dishes and having to gift them to others makes me feel bad for her. I also like that she's not really talented musically, it gives Jineon just more reason to hate her. First I was a bit skeptical about the idea of her aunt forcing Starship to add Taerim to the line up despite their intial protests but as I thought more about it, I liked it more and more.

If you would’ve asked me in person I probably would say something like “It’s not any different from when I was experiencing it. It’s becoming tedious.” But, that’s just because I don’t like expressing myself face-to-face with people. I can’t wait for her to start driving, and to go to her first high school dance, like homecoming, or to make new friends every year at school. Carlee is my best friend and there’s nothing in this whole world that would stop me from being there for my little sister when she needs me. Someday, she might actually grow taller than me.
When Tomari finally accepts that Hazumu just wants to be a girl she takes on the task of making Hazumu the most perfect girl ever. Almost everything Hazumu did Tomari had to fix her from doing it that way, she would say something like, girls don’t do that. Many of the things that Tomari taught Hazumu are a part of the American culture also. At the beginning of the episode Hazumu opened her legs before class, she tried to fan out her area down there. In America, not very many girls would think spreading your legs and fanning them would be appropriate.
