I came across this sticker today and just had to comment on it:
“Change how you see, not how you look” and then it shows an outline of a fat women.
Think about this for a second, do you agree? Does it seem self-evident? Maybe, but the more I thought about it, and it did not take long, I realized the horror of the mental reprogramming it represents.
Consider what it is saying: do not look at reality as it is, but instead look at it in a way positive to me.’
Once I realized this, my disgust magnified. Of course this is feminism in a nut shell, that reality is not correct/good and must be changed to what we deem acceptable. I can not believe how appropriate of a sticker this is for feminism.
Who in their right mind would seriously argue ‘change the way you see’ suggesting that what is in front of you (in this case a fat woman) is somehow not there, not fat, not bad, and instead I should change my view on reality and decide this woman too is beautiful.
I am reminded of both a Star Trek episode where Picard is a prisoner forced to say he sees three lights when there are actually four. Or, of course the perfect example of reprogramming 1984, where Wiston Smith loved Big Brother by the end.
I really hope one of my occasional feminist trolls sees this, their capacity for self-delusion knows no limits.
What is pretty funny too, is that whole ‘goddess’ symbol that this outline represents, that the shape of a women is desirable and fertile. I don’t know about you, but my Goddesses are WAY hotter, tall, skinny waists and large breasts; not some plum shape that encourages only disgust.
So there you go, change how you view reality, because I do not approve of it, and while you are changing what you see in front of you, change it to that my ugly and fatness (something I could change) becomes a thing of beauty.

Just kidding. I look at reality, not what they want me to see.
