Life's Less Fair Than Usual Department

It's not enough that you're not beautiful enough to star in movies. It's not enough that you don't starve yourself into a moving skeleton just to be skinny. It's not enough that you haven't stumbled into a big break that allows you a shot at fame and riches. No, you're just an ordinary looking female trying to make a difference in the world today.

That's where the media lies. Jessica Alba just happens to be beautiful, skinny, and famous enough to be tracked by the media everywhere. Yet, when she's just had a baby, they'll make sure she's made more beautiful and skinnier if they need to. (Hey! They weren't even happy with the pool and changed that, too!)

It's not easy being a female in America today. I feel for you. Just remember, much of the pictures you see aren't real - even if the people in them are.
