Thought of the Day: The Cinderella Culture

I see it so many times on TV.  The makeover.  What I see when I view these makeovers is women.  Women who are the ones chosen or selected to have makeovers done to them.  Our culture is a Cinderella culture, and these makeovers are intent on making women belles of the ball.

What I don’t see when I view these makeovers is men.  Men not being chosen or selected to have makeovers done to them.  We have a Cinderella culture; what about Cinderfella?  If the idea of a makeover is to spruce up an individual to uncover their potential, to help them look their best, then why are men being left out of the majority of these makeovers?  Our society’s fascination with beauty is one that extends to both men and women.  Why then are women still being featured as these Cinderellas, the ones who would most benefit from “makeovers?”
