A Little Bit Fashion…..A Little Bit Philosophy.

Tag Archives: bullying


Whether you like Kim Kardashian or you don’t, America is obsessed with her and her pregnancy. I’ve read countless blog posts and magazine articles about her pregnancy fashion choices and her supposed enormous weight gain. Though its comforting to see that I wasn’t the only woman who’s body changed during pregnancy, I really feel badly for the starlet over the slamming of her current weight. Since when has America gotten so mean??

As a society supposedly against bullying in our schools, aren’t we sending the exact opposite message by publicly bullying Ms. Kardashian on an international level on a daily basis? Imagine the consequences one would face if we harassed a pregnant woman about her weight gain in our workplace, or better yet; made fun of a student because of their weight gain at school? The consequences would be dire and severe for the perpetrator! Yet then we wonder why our children are bullying or are the ones being bullied in schools and on the streets? We wonder why we have all of this conflict and violence in our society? Maybe it’s because we are teaching one another that its ok to bash and make fun of one another when we aren’t picture perfect. This level of thinking is inherently flawed and only further contaminates the minds of our society. We teach one another that it’s ok to judge and be judged at any given moment and that this behavior is perfectly acceptable.

Headlines make money, but they shouldn’t come at the expense of any pregnant woman. Ever. The message that we are sending to our society with these articles is in stark contrast to what we preach as a society. We might as well just abolish all anti-bullying campaigns if we tolerate making fun of a pregnant woman’s weight on our magazine shelves at our local grocery stores.

Fame or no fame, Kim is still a human being with insecurities and feelings. Stop the bullying and the hatred. It’s NOT ok.

For all of those people reading this that have been hit, hurt, bullied and humiliated, this post is for you! The words to this Taylor Swift song are so moving. Go put on your cowboy boots and sing it at the top of your lungs and say “Buh Bye” to the abuser!

“You, with your words like knives
And swords and weapons that you use against me

You have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feeling like I’m nothing

You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard calling me out when I’m wounded

You picking on the weaker man

Well you can take me down with just one single blow

But you don’t know, what you don’t know…

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation

You have pointed out my flaws again
As if I don’t already see them

I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out ’cause I’ll never impress you

I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends RIGHT NOW

Cause you can’t lead me down that road
And you don’t know, what you don’t know…

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game

With that same big loud opinion
But nobody’s listening

Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things

Drunk and grumbling on about how I can’t sing

But all you are is mean

All you are is mean

And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean, yeah

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so?..

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city and all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me
and all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?”
