The Quest To Be Presentable
A woman always has to look her best whenever she steps out of the house. It can often be a case of social life or death if she walks out looking like she just woke up and squirmed into whatever clothes she found dotted around the bedroom. For one reason or another, judging eyes tend to narrow and flash condescendingly whenever they see something they do not accept or appreciate. Those judging eyes can be extremely damaging to anyone with low self-esteem. Therefore, the woman retreats into the house to pick her clothes more discerningly and carefully. She must always look as perfect as time and money will allow. Even if she can only wear plus size women’s clothing, it is a task she must complete like the rest of her day will count on it. Otherwise she can be susceptible to people who will cut her down with harsh words, those judging eyes and body language that screams disdain.
Of course, this situation doesn’t only befall women who can only wear plus size dresses. Heaven forbid those people are the only ones who are discriminated against for the so-called good of the general society. No, the judgement and the dissension can befall everyone because we view people with our eyes and what looks good to us. We don’t care so much about how a person feels, how they behave or how they speak when we first meet them. We look at them in how they choose to appear to us. That means how they present themselves to the outside world in all their splendour — or not. Some people choose not to care and will go about life only doing what they please and never living to opinions that differ from theirs. That can be a healthy way to live for some. There is no pressure to conform to what society considers the norm, any disdain is like water off a duck’s back, there is some sort of free atmosphere and a sense of contentment. Most women who are forced to wear plus size women’s clothing feel like that can never be an option to them. There is some innate feeling of disgust or discomfort that turns some people away from people who are ‘larger’ than what seems ‘acceptable’. There isn’t much that can be done in that case.
However, it isn’t always time to throw in the towel for women who have to wear plus size women’s clothing. They are just as attractive as the people who are deemed ‘normal size’. They are just beautiful in a different but just as legitimate way. We shouldn’t judge them as easily as we do. There is nothing that says they aren’t as human as the rest of us. If clothing makes the person, then that just means plus size women’s clothing makes a person twice as good as the ‘norm’. That’s one way to look at things.
