Today, in 1983, one of my idols, Karen Carpenter, died, at 32.

She had a heart attack, due to anorexia nervosa. Her talent surpassed most. She was the sad product of someone saying that she was too plump. As a woman, who has spent her entire life, trying to achieve extreme beauty, and as a woman with a B.A. in Theatre Arts, who didn’t believe that she/I was skinny enough to be a great actress and singer. I ask the women out there, in their, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s 70’s, who are in the public eye, and not in the public eye, to please stop trying to forever look younger, to forever get skinnier, To get Botox and facelifts, to get noticed. You are giving every single generation behind you, the sad message, that you must forever fight who you naturally are, to be accepted.
