none of that matters

it might actually be worse

what matters is the effect the movie will have on the person seeing it
and no matter what people tell themselves about 'this is a movie' 'only a movie'
'its not real'
it has an effect
an effect that is multiplied by what girls are bombarded with everyday
the message of they are not good enough

hopefully hes right and the ending does the happy ending thing
odds are this movies message is really screwy

When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. Live so that when you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.
You cannot hate people for their own good.
