How about we change it up a little bit?
In music videos
On movie screens
Show the girl’s unattractive side
Show the little bulge in her stomach she sucks in
Show her scanty eyebrows and her flat nose
Show the bags under her eyes and the insecurities in them
Then, colour her personality
Let people know there’s more to her
Than her appearance
Let her speak her mind
Let her tell her jokes,
Let her mistake a word for another,
Let her mispronounce them
Let her be her,
And let’s see what the world has to offer.
Her in entirety
In music videos,
On movie screens,
Show his unattractive side.
Show the bulge in his stomach, the one he so desperately tries to get rid of.
Show his balding head, and his skinned chin.
Show his caramel coloured skin drawn upon his lips, not pink.
Show him moving down a road, with his legs and not a car.
Show him holding a door out for his female counterpart
And his neck keeping still when she passes.
Let him watch romcom’s and sniffle his nose
Let him be angry without turning violent
Let him cry on a shoulder when he feels so
Let him be a man in the way he deems so.
Let him be Him.
Because he already is a man
Without meeting your criteria.
