|Too pretty to be taken seriously?|
The Real Wendy Davis has to say about this picture:
Somehow, during the past two decades she has been transformed from a frumpy, pleasant looking but plain-faced, flat-chested brunette with thick, messy hair, into a buxom blonde with excellent facial features and sleek, long, perfectly coiffed hair, like she stepped straight out of Vogue.
For someone who in the early 1990s was a feminist activist in law school, and who is currently posing as a champion of women’s rights, standing up to men who seek to dictate the way women should live, she seems to have devoted an unusual amount of attention to her physical appearance.
Uh huh. You know somehow an attack from those who once supported Sarah Palin, on another politicians attractiveness carries with it a strong pungent odor of hypocrisy.
Oh, but it is not that Davis is attractive which seems to be the issue, it is that her attractiveness seems impossible.
Current photos of Senator Davis depict someone who is not just more physically attractive, but who arguably seems younger than the woman in her yearbook photo, even though that photo was taken 22 years ago.
The website author then goes on to accuse Davis of using surgery or artificial enhancements to make herself attractive, assuming that if true it will undermine her star power.
Well I have news for them, while I cannot help but notice that Davis is indeed a very attractive women, that had virtually NOTHING to do with WHY I think she is a star.
She is a star because she singlehandedly halted a bill that, if passed, will have a devastating effect on a woman's ability to control her own body in Texas.
She is a star because she is bright, articulate, and courageous. NONE of which can be acquired utilizing push up bras or plastic surgery.
If Wendy Davis were a three hundred pound Jabba the Hut lookalike it would make little difference, because we are seeing the intelligence and heart of Wendy Davis, not the form in which it is housed.
If all it took was plastic surgery, and fake boobs to be a superstar, THIS woman would be running for President in 2016 instead of fighting for five minute increments of air time on Fox News.
(P.S. By the way if we were all judged by our appearance when attending college, I know a LOT of people who would not be taken very seriously today.)
