I hate society so much.
Girls are taught from such a young age that “beautiful” is in the shape of a plastic barbie doll, when in reality it’s not possible to have that figure. Once they hit teenage years that’s when it goes downhill with media opinions and everyone around them on diets and talking about how skinny this person and that person is. Society puts such a pressure on girls that they feel in order to fit in, they need to be a size 0. No. In order to fit in, they should be as healthy as possible! I’ve fallen under that pressure so many times and I’m now starting to come out of it. I am who I am and I’m starting to accept that. Of course I want to be that girl who walks down the street and people think she’s gorgeous, but will I ever feel like that? Probably not and I’m okay with that. It breaks my heart to see people falling under the pressure of society because it’s not fair. “Heavy” girls feel the need to wear baggy clothing because they’re paranoid and they get judged if they wear tight clothing. Who the hell thinks it’s acceptable to judge someone because of what they look like?! People should start minding their own business.
School. School is a very messed up place. Teenagers try to avoid it so much because if they do go, they feel like they’re being judged all day. Teachers put pressure on students to stand up in class and speak in front of everyone! No person should be forced to do something they don’t want to do. Teachers and parents need to wake up and start realising that there are valuable reasons that teenagers don’t want to be in school and not because they “can’t be bothered”.
Why should someone feel bad for the way they dress, they way they look, the colour of their skin, the way they feel etc. Bottom line is, they shouldn’t. Everyone is absolutely perfect in their own unique way.
I know people say “we hate society, yet we are society” but NEVER will I associate myself with this sick society. I would never judge anyone for any reason.

Women’s Participation Rise 120% in Saudi Industries
Women of Saudi Arabia are claiming their rightful role in private and government sectors, as these sectors strive to hire qualified women in different fields.
According to the Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technical Zones (MODON), the number of Saudi women taking part in the industrial cities it oversees has seen a significant increase by around120 percent, bringing the total number of female workers 17,000 by the end of March this year.
Khalid Al-Salem, director general of MODON, said that the authority “has come a long way” and still aims at encouraging the female participation in the industrial sector.
“These oases host clean industries such as medical and food industries, rubber and high-tech industries, as well as prefabricated factories supporting women entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises,” he said.
He said: “MODON seeks to support the productivity of women by providing an optimal environment for their work. Therefore, it signed a memorandum of understanding with a building development company to implement nursery and kindergarten programs in industrial cities and oases under the Ministry of Education’s guidance.” He added.
This strategy of activating the role of women in industrial development goes along with the Saudi Vision of 2020 that aim at enhancing women’s role in the Kingdom’s economy.
