I’ve got to rant for just a minute and then I’ll leave it alone.
What are our young daughters and granddaughters and nieces to think when they see our beautiful and talented gymnasts sulking over silver medals?
I mean really?
Our baby girls are already bombarded by outside influences telling them from the earliest age that perfection is the only acceptable. Acceptable what??
Acceptable body, acceptable hair, nails, clothing and now gold for the athlete. Pishaw!!
Smile your little glorious behinds off for being an Olympian!!
Good grief have we ever lost sight of the accomplishment because sponsorships, etc. are determined by all or none?
I’m so stinking proud of every single American Athlete that has stepped totally out of their comfort zones for most of their young lives to go before the masses and lay it all on the line. Win or not, they are Olympians!
Shame on the all or none attitude surrounding those young people setting perfectionists goals and creating self-doubt and sulking over silver!
Have you heard all of the Brits singing their national anthem after each and every gold? Not the athletes but the whole crowd!!
