"Our culture is fearful of ageing," said Franklin, "and especially ageing women. I say, 'Stop apologising for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about."

    Brooke, while I agree with your sentiment regarding eternity, I disagree with regarding the aging of women. One of the most fascinating things is seeing a truly beautiful woman age. The inner beauty becomes more evident as the outward begins to fade.

    "Women aging is no more beautiful than watching a flower wilt." Well, what an odd comment. Is a seedling more beautiful than a mature tree? I think not. There is beauty in both. There is beauty in the newness of life and also in having weathered many storms and becoming something unique. I would think that is a better analogy than comparing a woman to a cut flower. Certainly, there is a reason we do grow older. There is a reason our bodies age, but that does not mean that a life or a person is any less beautiful at 80 than they were at 18.

    Right. Beauty certainly isn't everything, but who we are definitely shows in how we look. As a person who believes that I am a creation of God, I think my body is beautiful. I might not be as "pretty" by the world's standards as others, but I believe all are beautiful, no matter their age. It is not wrong to be attracted to beauty, it is in our nature to seek after it. Whether it is the beauty of a face, a flower, a great attitude, or a piece of art, there is nothing wrong with beauty.

    "who we are definitely shows in how we look" <-- Respectfully, I strongly disagree with that. We have an extremely finite degree of control over how we present to the world. Most of how we look is *arbitrary* -- not earned, not chosen, not anything but dumb luck. THAT IS WHY lookism is so unjust and why fighting it is part of feminism.

    http://www.pinterest.com/pi... This is what I am talking about. I really don't see how "feminism" figures in here because there is judgment laid on men over their appearance as well. I was merely pointing out that there is beauty in all if you are willing to see it. And yes, I sure as heck think that your attitude shows in how you look.

    How we "look" is not necessarily defined by features, but rather, countenance. I've seen women born with natural good looks, as far as features go, but their countenance is anything but beautiful. I think that is the thing to which Kathryn was alluding

    Yes, exactly, Denise. :)

    i have to comment, just to tell you Denise how much I enjoyed your use of the word countenance! It is not often used anymore, but so appropriate and descriptive!
