People are truly a trip!
The latest conversation tearing up the Twitterverse is the talk about Gabby Douglas’ hair. Some women are taking issue with the fact that, Gabby is sporting a pony tail, pins and gel needed to hold her hair together during stressful performances. Some women think the girl’s hair look a mess! So is she suppose to have a full set of hard pressed curls while she’s jumping and running as real gymnast do?
Douglas has set the world on fire, and broken records in the process., yet she is supposed to be concerned about her hair? When it’s going to sweat out during olympic activities anyway. I doubt Gabby Douglas is concerned about styling and profiling while her eyes are clearly set on the prize.
This sad and pathetic focus on style over substance certainly defines the weak, superficial value systems that have been adopted by too many of us today. The girl with the cute hair and Gucci shoes often thinks that she’s better off than the little girl who knows how to work hard to make something out of herself.
Gabby Douglas is an American hero and she’s every bit as beautiful as the little girl who missed gymnastics class or exercise last Saturday because she spent the entire day at the salon “getting her hair done.” Beauty is more than scalp deep, and our kids need to understand this message clearly.
These conversations are sad, weak and petty! Grow up people, she WON the gold so who gives a damn about her hair!!
