The preppy lifestyle was the lifestyle that we chose to follow because it offered us a choice to fit in with the culture that we were living in. It allowed us to pursue the things we wanted to pursue, rather than trying to live up to others’ expectations. The main point of the preppy lifestyle was to be cool, to be fashionable, to be socially acceptable.
The preppy lifestyle is always a problem. The thing is that so many people choose to be preppy because they’re attracted to the idea of conformity. They think that by following the rules of what is considered “cool” they will become “cool.” They don’t realize that being preppy is just like being a girl.
That is essentially the same thing as trying to become a woman. In our society we are told from a very young age that all women are supposed to be passive and submissive, and that men are supposed to be dominant and aggressive. We take that notion to an extreme. We tell all women that they cant be anything but passive. That is not only wrong, it is dangerous. In our society it is dangerous to be anything other than you.
Becoming preppy is like becoming a woman. Becoming a girl is a lot like being a woman. Being cool, becoming cool is like being a preppy. We are encouraged to be cool and be aggressive and dominant. We are even encouraged to aspire to be the most powerful and dominant man in the world. It’s so messed up.
Becoming cool is like being a guy. Becoming a girl is like your average girl. Being a preppy is like becoming a girl, but not having to worry about your body and being the man of the house. This is not what being a woman is. Being a woman is being the woman of the house. Becoming a preppy is being the man of the house, but being a woman is being the woman of the house.
I think its a little bit too much to ask for. I mean, most of us are already pretty well covered in layers of clothing. We already wear many more layers than that. We also already wear many more layers that we aren’t comfortable with. Having to wear many layers makes us feel less confident.
We can all wear layers. We can wear layers because we can wear more layers than we would like, but we can also wear layers because we feel better about what we are wearing and how we are looking. It is not as much of a hassle for women to wear layers either.
But, most of us are already so covered in layers that we feel like we need a whole new layer of clothing. We have to wear layers to protect ourselves from the sun in summer and the cold in winter. We have to wear layers in the summer to keep from getting overheated and in winter to keep from freezing to death. We have to wear layers to hide our flaws.
This is not about making you feel good about your body. This is just about making you feel better about your skin and how you’re looking. We do this because we want to feel confident about who we are.
We like to think of ourselves as being pretty good at looking for flaws, but we shouldn’t feel insecure about this. Our bodies are our most valuable possession. If you don’t like your body, well, then that’s your own problem. What matters is that you feel good about who you are.
