I have an enormous crush on Jennifer Lawrence. I have no idea what that tells you about me, and I’m more than a tiny bit shy about revealing that here. That said, I simply cannot sit silently on my keyboarding hands while people gain recognition at her expense.
Right. Ms. Lawrence tripped on purpose. At the Oscars. Because that’s just the kind of attention she needs and she will go to any length to snag it.
Stop it. Please, just STOP. IT.
Put yourself in the woman’s six-inch stilettos for a milli-second. If you happen to find yourself, at the tender age of 23, a world sensation, and if you find yourself nominated, nay, declared a winner of the most coveted prize in Hollywood, and if you find yourself, as you climb the stairs to accept your award, falling flat on your adorable face, I DARE you to recover as quickly as she did, to find your stride, to maintain your poise and dignity. I DARE YOU!
Shame on the industry that promotes the objectification of women.
Shame on the need to ridicule and to poke at the flaws and foibles of those who have found celebrity, of those placed on a pedestal.
Shame on you. You put her there in the first place.
