The Jordan Effect

Surprising new research shows that almost half of young women between the ages of 18 and 25 would rather have large breasts than be intelligent. A third says that they would gladly trade. To me, this is shocking, but in another way, its not. Its easy to believe in a sense, because of the media, and the way things are changing. But this seems like its going a little to far. Researchers believe that this is due to celebrity culture, and the way a younger audience is influenced by the media and what they see around them. A quarter of the women claimed that having larger breasts would make them “happier”. They believed that men would be more interested in them if they had larger breasts. Why would you want to mess with your body just for the satisfaction of others, rather than be smart and get yourself somewhere in life? The way I see it, when women give in the what they think men will like, they are reinforcing negative body image messages and giving power to a patriarchal society. Why should we go to such extreme measures to change the natural states of our bodies, simply because the media perceives it as attractive? This kind of stupidity disgusts me, I mean its like really? Is this what our society has come to? Its reinforcing the belief that women are good for their looks, rather than their intelligence.
