A few friends and I were discussing all the hilarious/crazy pictures and posts and rants and trending topics that we see on a daily basis via social media. Among the almost annoyingly frequent glut of pics and posts, we found that there is a trend of exclusivity. Various races, genders, music fans, sports lovers etc. seem to love telling others how real (or not) they are by their own standards:
“You’re a REAL Lakers fan if..”
“Only REAL Sistas [insert any number of actions]…”
“If you don’t know this song you’re not a REAL R&B fan…”
It’s a hit or miss situation. Sometimes they hit us with truth and it’s nothing but net, other times I’m looking around with a hardcore WTF! face thinking that folks need to just be benched for their crazy assessments of what constitutes “realness.” Today I shall call out my top 5 of the ridiculous “real” peddlers who haven’t quite thought through the BS they’re trying to sell. Don’t get your feathers all ruffled, just take a look and have a laugh:
When asked what your “type” is, you probably start listing off physical characteristics: surfer type, preppy, muscular, hipster, put together etc. And, typically, your inquisitor will then say, “But that doesn’t tell me anything about what kind of personality you like!” Okay, so points to them for noticing you’re a bit superficial in your answer. However, if they looked beneath the surface, they’d find that you are telling them what sort of personality you like, all by telling them the type of appearance you like. Think about it: you dress, do your hair, stick to a certain diet and wear your makeup a certain way to tell the world who you are. You try every day to send a message to the world whether that’s, “I am confident” or “I feel like crap today” or “I am strong.” Your appearance is more honest and more telling than you may realize. Same goes for men and when you see a certain type of body or a certain style, you’re seeing a personality, or at least an essence of it.
