Umm. Thelma's mixed in with a little vanilla latte. Bernardette Stanis is still a very good looking woman after all these years.

Those are things that are universally considered to be attractive. You want someone with wide nose, nappy hair and dark eyes?

Here you go:



Oddly enough, Shirley was my favorite on the show. Why? Because of her personality. She was funny, to the point, and didnt take any crap from anyone. Just like my wife.

No, I'm not my own worst critic. Apparently women with darkskin, wide nose, and kinky hair are nothing but mammies to them. This isn't the first time male posters have posted photos of Aunt jemina looking women. I guess I will have to accept my lot in life. I have features that are universally deemed not that attractive and live a life alone. Or just be a maid

Were you upset when the Aunt Jemima pancake mix company changed the way Aunt Jemima looked from this:



To this lighter skinned, straightend hair, thinner, less "mammy" type look:



Mods, please do not remove, this is NOT racists as it refers to the core of what this thread is about.

I can see that stand point. In a case where someone is told by family and people around they that they have features that are unattractive, and it's reinforced by TV and make up ads showing people that look attractive that look nothing like you (Someone earlier post a video documentary interviwing people who were commenting on it). You can have one person who is devastated by this barrage of negativity and someone who lives right next door not affected by it one bit. Like they say "Walk a mile in another mans shoes" or woman in this case.
If a person is going to let what someone has said or allow what the media perceives as attractive to affect their mental state and self esteem then that person cannot have any healthy relationship, whether it be professional, romantic or platonic but most importantly, a relationship with themselves. Trust me, I can stand to lose some weight. I got the jabs when I was a kid. I'm not obese but I do not fit the "skinny" profile. Has that stopped me or affected my mentality in establishing any relationships? Of course not. I refuse to let what "society", "media" or anyone else control my mind. If you take one scenario and apply it to 2 people who fall under this scenario then you have to look at the results of how each person is affected. Person "A" makes this issue revolve around their world 24/7 and uses the issue as a crutch and blames every single thing on that issue while person "B" has a good job, is in a healthy and loving romantic relationship, has a large circle of friends, doesn't even remotely think about the issue. It's not the scenario itself that is the problem but the type of person who falls within the scenario and how they choose to deal with it.
