I make it very clear I am the proud papa of some very special young ladies. With this being said, I also feel they still live in a world of inequality. I believe they live in a world that expects them to be what magazines and movies want them to be. This is my message to all...I do not back inequality of any kind!

Little girl stands in front of her mirror

wishing

WISHING

she was the Cosmo girl

that she can never be

because little girls are not airbrushed.

She has forgot about being the

Pretty

PRETTY

princess,

and she has forgot

the dreams of being president . . .

She only wants to be

skinny

SKINNY

like the supermodel on the cover

of a magazine so sexy,

so thin,

so fake in the colors of print.

The mirror cries back in great expectations...
