- I accidentally obliterated the rant.
- I couldn't rewrite the rant because I stopped agreeing with it.
Here's the problem, though. I can argue that all the money spent on highlighted cheekbones might be better spent on feeding starving children or eradicating malaria, and it seems like a slam dunk. But that's pretty easy for me, because I think makeup is stupid. What about the frivolous things I do enjoy? Cute shoes? Necklaces? Having a gym membership? Going out for pizza? Kitchen gadgets? Air conditioning?
It's kind of a slippery slope, weighing the value of the things we want against the lives of far-away people we don't know. I'm just not going to judge anyone else until I get more comfortable with where I'm drawing my own line.
