We all know it, it's plastered all over magazines and media, in movies, in shops. Girls must be thin to be beautiful. Blondes have more fun.
This ideal is affecting girls younger and younger and it saddens me when I hear it from my very own niece.
"My sister is prettier than me, she has blonde hair."
I love my nieces, they are both stunning girls, with cheeky personalities and the brains to match. They are intelligent, kind, loving little girls and I pity the person who breaks either of their hearts.
