We tear down women in this country for all kinds of superficial reasons…

I don’t know if you seen this, but it really struck a chord with me. This is a video where Ellen Degeneres interviews Melissa McCarthy about a critic that basically trashed her for how unattractive she is in her movies.

I gotta tell ya… Melissa McCarthy is my new hero and a very beautiful person, both inside and out. When faced by her critic, these are some of the things he said to her:

“Your husband shouldn’t direct you because you looked horrible.”

“How dare women not look beautiful and attractive in a movie!”

Her response?

“Just know every time you write stuff, every young girl in this country reads that, and they just get a little bit chipped away,” McCarthy said. “I just think we tear down women in this country for all these superficial reasons, and women are so great and strong.”
