Ariel Winter is pissed that media outlets chose to focus on her quotes about being a teenager and living with her older boyfriend from her recent interview with Refinery29. Rather, the interview was supposed to focus on making young women feel better about their bodies in swimsuits at the beach. Also, for Refinery29 to push a ton of bathing suits under affiliate sales deals. Everybody missed it. Winter took to Instagram:
"The point [of the interview] was to take back the beach and help people understand that the beach should be a safe space to go as you please and feel good about yourself no matter what!"
Refinery29 posted a similarly scolding article, reminding everybody who missed their glorified retail push, the importance of making the beach amazing again:
For Winter, the beach is fun. She brings snacks and toys and sometimes wears a little makeup.
That does sound intriguing. It's hard to believe the press skipped right over that bit about pacing sandwiches and skipped right into her been a teen girl with big tits cohabiting with an older dude who resembles a non-verbal twelve year old.
We've all conceded that arbitrary fashion statements proclaimed by corporations looking to move merchandise is a legitimate topic of discussion. Billions of dollars worth of legitimate. There's no such agreement as to taking any of the trumped up social messaging encouraging girls to buy more shit seriously. Whether you employ "you're not pretty enough" or "you're pretty as you are" as your false front, the goal remains the same. Money.
The popular girls are sell-outs, because they can be. The less popular girls are exploited. Don't pretend you're less crass than porn when you're so obviously the same.
