I’m perplexed, ya’ll. Because see, I like Tiny. Let’s be clear that I don’t actually know this woman, and it’s mighty easy for me to come to a conclusion when I’ve only seen the edited parts of the life she choses to share with us. Even considering that, I like her. She’s funny and usually comes across as a real person, which I appreciate.
I just don’t know what to make of it. She already has fake boobs, a tummy tuck, a fake booty, all kinds of different, fake hair, outrageous nails, and all around interesting style choices. It’s funny that I think she’s real, but I do. I think she’s as real as she knows to be, which is all everybody else is trying to do. These ice gray eyes though. Not regular gray but the ice kind. For what? Not to improve her sight. Not to correct a birth defect. Not to help in any way but to perfect an eye color that she clearly thought was imperfect.
Aaaaaaaagggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Chile, I just had to scream real quick.
We all make changes every now and then to keep it funky and switch it up (cue pictures of me with bangs, short hair, long hair, chubby, skinny, tanned, nerdy, sexy, etc). Monotony sucks so change is great. On the other hand, loving oneself is almost akin to loving God and appreciating His work in and on us. I can’t help but to think that having something surgically altered (and going to Tunisia Africa to do it because it’s not legal in the States) is a reflection of some self-loathing. It’s not something you do just because you “want to try something different”, which is what Tiny said she was doing with this new eye color. Really, booskie boo? You risked your sight, the future health of your vision, and the many other possible complications when undergoing such a procedure because you ain’t have ish else to do?
Then I think to myself, a person who gives that reason for changing their eye color may truly just not have ish else to do. Like, in real life Tiny could just be expressing her creativity through her body because she has the artistic leaning and the means to do so. Even still, I think she has an obligation to women and girls who look to her for validation (this chick has 2 million Instagram followers). I think people look to her for what’s cool, and I think it would be great if she promoted self-love as strongly as she promotes plastic surgery. IJS.
What message do we send our daughters (your daughters because I don’t have any) when we come home with bigger breasts, bigger booties, smaller waists, blonder hair, lighter eyes, and none the smarter? I just want to love myself, ya’ll. And I want little girls to love themselves. Tiny out here making it hard.
