saccharine 17

Looking through 17 magazine,

Beauty- is everything.

Bikinis and flat bellies, nails polished and eye shadows, mani’s and pedi’s, and love! and boys and boys and boys

 and, isn’t it fun to be 17?

What’s wrong with pretty? What’s wrong with fun?

 What’s wrong.

We must not think much of our girls; no celebration with the same exhibition: their brain, their brawn, their gift.

 Where are those magazines?

Couldn’t our daughters be the leaders who change everything?

But we sell them so cheaply.

The price of 17.
