Whose idea of beauty?

Sharing an oldie, but a goodie ;-) At the entrance of a gym, there was a poster of a slender and beautiful woman. The caption below read "DO YOU WANT TO BE A MERMAID OR A WHALE?" The story goes, that a woman (who didn’t resemble the one on the poster) answered in the following way: Whales are always surrounded by friends - curious humans, dolphins, seals.  They are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.  Whales eat plenty of prawns and lobster.  They swim all day and travel to exotic places like The Barrier Reef, the Caribbean Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.  Whales have unique singing voices and are even recorded on CDs. They are beautiful, majestic and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires. Mermaids do not exist. But if they did, they would likely need a psychologist due to identity crisis: woman or fish?  They would have no sex life and could not bear children.  True, mermaids would be lovely, but probably lonely and sad.  And who really wants a girl that smells like fish? Without question, I'd rather be a whale. The media tells us that only slim is beautiful, but I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends. Maybe women gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our head, so it spreads all over our bodies. We’re not fat, we are highly cultivated. Every time I see my body in the mirror, I tell myself: "How wonderful am I ?!" - Anonymous Beauty is subjective... and beautiful comes in all shapes and sizes.
