Possible unpopular opinion here:


Has anyone considered that Ms Carey, possessed of fortitude enough to become a superstar in the recording industry, possessed of the will to undertake that most grueling and under-appreciated of all endeavors -- motherhood -- is something other than a leaf to be blown about by the winds of public opinion?

She made this decision. Don't empower the hypocritical fat-shaming cowards infesting the YouTube comment sections by saying that they brought this about; That they broke her; That they won.

Ms Carey underwent a dangerous and ethically questionable medical procedure of her own free will, be it motivated by unhappiness, doubt, or the conscious pursuit of marketing herself as a more palatable version of femininity for the sake of making more money.

Yes, a large (although I suspect, and dearly hope, declining) number of people in society have a problem with women who actually take up some space, and yes, they have no right to inflict their ideals upon those whom they have chosen to celebritize, but we who may accept, prefer, glorify, or be of greater stature also have no right to anoint one as our champion.

To politicize those possessed of physical attributes of which we approve is as fallacious as to do so to those possessed of physical attributes we find unbecoming.

She is not ours. Never was.

Her body is her own, to do with as she chooses.

That said, it's a pity that she made such an ill-informed decision, the consequences of which she may well regret, as it was one that not only may hold in store deleterious effects on her health, but also one that may have been as unnecessary from a career standpoint as it was from a medical one.


Just my take on it.
