Aesthetic Bullying

Post by Above us only sky » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:16 am

Last week a new super shopping mall opened in my town, and I, like many other, decided to go to the new shopping mall to have a look: it is a very splendid architecture, with lots of marble and shinning metal in side the building, but it is not a very pleasant experience: the whole ground floor is occupied by fashion cloth retailers, each of them have a model or a flat-screen tv displaying some model shows. They reminds everybody how ugly we look. The cloths they sell (includes cloths for children) are ' fashion cloths', that means they are the most beautiful, but in a child's view, a cloth or shoes made by grandma or mom with beautiful pattern on it can also be beautiful. Those fashion retailers seems to trying to force their idea of beautiful cloth into others.

This is a form of bulling, there should be some law to prevent it.

I can understand how one could feel compelled to write in that way. I'd like to say a few things about the above. First, it presupposes another's intent to make you feel bad about yourself. There is no good reason to presuppose that. Secondly, it also shows that you have built your own self-confidence about how you look upon what another considers beautiful. You judged yourself by another's standard.

Why?

I know some cases, when they were younng, people throw stones to them because of their appearance, and I've know a lot of people that laugh at others faces and bodies, that's bullying, not a fucking building offering clothes and showing people more beautifull for common standards than you.

These are strictly your personal interpretations, and they seem like ridiculous interpretations to me. It might be interesting to explore why, psychologically, you'd be prone to such interpretations, but it probably wouldn't be easy to explore that in a setting such as this.

Ah ah, so you do go shopping after all, Fish Pie. Just be aware that there will probably be some wanker watching you and laughing.

No, it won't be me, it will be some other wanker. My life hasn't yet sunk so low as to reduce me to observing and laughing at people shopping.

"England" is gone. A "Great Britain" exists. But, what will the Brexit event provoke? See this wonderful book: https://www.amazon.com/England-Elegy-Ro ... uton+books

''England: An Elegy shows that there is such a country as England, that it has a distinct personality and endows its residents with a distinct moral ideal.''
