This headline and article had me fuming. They focus the readers attention on appearance again - rather than the good the person (in this case, Anne) is doing. I think it’s disgusting how newspapers pick us up on little details such as our makeup - rather that just report good deeds. Does anyone remember seeing the articles about the actress who saved people from drowning, yet all they focused on was her nipples that slipped out as she pulled them from the water?
Stop focusing on appearance and forming your articles in such a fashion to gain attention, it belittles the good that others do.

We really need to mention her lack of make-up? Really? She flew to Tennessee to spend the day with patient’s in a children’s hospital. Let’s focus on that.

i really hate the attitude a lot of men have about how women are so different and mysterious and hard to understand, as if women are some kind of foreign species and not fellow human beings and then complain about women being unapproachable and ‘prude’ 

you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach

"you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach”

I’ve never heard wiser words.
