Ugh…Ted Talks…why, Alexi, why? Please, Alexi, we fans love you the way you are…trivial, petty, non-committal and superficial…no more Ted Talks, please…
And where the hell is The Blind Leading the Blind?
This was so close to being great.
First, Cameron ended with talking about “our perceived successes” and “our perceived failures”, but she did not mention that perception is often not reality. It would have helped to make the point. Close, though.
Second, her pushing the topics of discrimination and profiling were gratuitous, and really has very little to do with body image, the topic at hand. That was Cameron pushing an agenda.
But, that being said, it was still an excellent 10 minutes!
yo henry. non-committal and superficial aren’t mutually exclusive with intelligent. i liked it.
I seriously want to walk up to her and punch her in the face. It’s like she doesn’t even have a brain.
@Joe, discrimination and profiling are closely interrelated to what body image (because discriminate profiling can only be done with what you SEE). Cameron, as a tall, white, beautiful, young woman (her body image) admits that she is privileged to not have to fear and face institutional racism.
