“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it” said Chinese philosopher Confucius.
Every culture has their own definition of beauty. In Greece, if a woman is blonde and blue-eyed she is much sought after. I’m guessing that my Greek compatriots caught the ‘blonde obsession virus’ during the German occupation of Greece during the second world war. I find it so odd that even if the blonde and blue-eyed woman has missing teeth or an acne problem she will still be considered beautiful. Okay I don’t want to be mean or anything. What I’m trying to say is that this obsession with blonde and blue-eyed people can’t just be due to their rare colouring?
This blonde Aryan worship is widespread of course. Blonde ambition began in recent history in Europe and then the U.S. more specifically California where film actresses began to experiment with bleach. In Hollywood blonde is beautiful, but in Asia you’re a freak. Today I saw a scene in the film ”The Karate Kid’ [I was flipping the channels around] and Daniel was sitting with his mom at some diner. They were talking about girls when the mother asked Daniel something like, ‘is this girl who you like beautiful?’ and Daniel says ‘of course mom, she’s blonde!’ So, I started thinking, ‘if the love interest was raven haired would she be considered ugly by Daniel?’
On Greek television there is a game show called ‘Revenge of the Blonde’ . The contestant stands in front of 300 blonde (mostly from the bottle) women. The contestant has to try to eliminate all of them by giving the right answers to question covering a range of subjects from sports to history. The funny things is that I don’t remember a contestant ever winning all of the money. So, in actuality they do get their revenge for being dubbed as ‘stupid’ all of these years.
If you’re not a blonde or you are a blonde and you are feeling insecure about your looks; just keep this quote in mind: “Every time you see a beautiful woman, just remember, somebody got tired of her”-anonymous.
