Curious_Ad9930 t1_izqvoao wrote

It’s a reference to many copypastas that parody these inspirational/feel-good viral social media posts. There’s probably an entire genre dedicated to the LinkedIn posts like this.

Typical story arc is: Today I was doing [anything] when I saw [celebrity] help a child in a [perilous situation]. Then [celebrity] helps kid and shares a profound quote of knowledge. Who was that kid? That kid grew up to be [another celebrity]. (Usually Einstein or Musk)

If you’re lucky, the story ends with everyone in the immediate area clapping and possibly donating $100 to the poor kid.

Not to mention how she was malnourished for a long time as a kid/teenager, I forget exactly why. Damn shame a woman has to be emaciated to be "beautiful."


shamanbaptist t1_izqew0m wrote

I recall her formative years were spent in Nazi occupied Netherlands.


chevymonza t1_izqfyo0 wrote

That'll do it. I thought it had to do with the war.


WhyWhyWhy28 t1_izp5kvq wrote

Did Audrey have children and allow their manky cookie covered fingers run through her hair? No chance my friend!


master_chife t1_izrnca0 wrote

She did, she was noted to be a wonderful mother and very kind to children.

She devoted her life to working with UNICEF to help child refugees. As she herself had her childhood ruined by the horrors of the second world war.

So I would say yeah. Good person.


uberjam t1_izpln1m wrote

Kinda easier to turn all that stuff abstract or whatever when you’re as stunningly gorgeous as Audrey Hepburn.


morbo26 t1_izqyydx wrote

And it’s easy to blame the world for your failures once you dye your hair blue and decide being healthy is a sign of the oppression.

Think about the meaning of the world and not the obviously stunning appearance. Plenty of beautiful assholes out there, and ugly ones too.


RedCascadian t1_izs7mxc wrote


Plenty of healthy and beautiful women with dyed hair exist. Plenty of healthy women with natural hair colors will also never be as attractive as Audrey Hebburn. Some will be be unattractive even.

But thanks for letting everyone know where your biases are.


Celcius_87 t1_izpr2wk wrote

I guess she was beautiful inside and out


Pilot0350 t1_izqgf62 wrote

She used to dance for the Nazis occupying her hometown during WWII to raise money to help fund the underground. She also helped hide and feed allied soldiers so they wouldn't be captured, then after a short career in film, went on to dedicate her life to humanitarian work in Africa.

She was arguably one of the most incredible women of the 20th century. There's a book called Dutch Girl that is absolutely worth the read.

Ever since I was a young boy, she was my crush. This just makes me like her even more. She was an amazing woman

Her story during WWII is both inspiring and heartbreaking.


trashpanda920 t1_izpcejf wrote

People expect too much from women. Why do they have to do even any of those things to be beautiful, even though they aren't considered typical standards of beauty. Let me be a mess


[deleted] t1_izpywqu wrote

The intent of the statement is to deconstruct beauty standards and focus on inner beauty and ethics. It was using societal beliefs as a philosophical frame.


khleedril t1_izpjg4y wrote

To be fair, you can do all those things and still choose to be a mess if you want.


Pseudoburbia t1_izpv3nz wrote

Be a mess then. Be whatever you want to be. But understand that isn’t beautiful to many. This whole “accept me as I am AND APPRECIATE it!!” attitude is irritating. You don’t always get both.


trashpanda920 t1_izpvydv wrote

I appreciate what you are saying. I didn't necessarily say that I want society to accept people like me who consider themseles " low maintenance" , though we should not be ridiculed or told it is unattractive or what have you, because people don't " appreciate it". What I want to accept is my business. Accepting that people think my style of self maintenance is unacceptable, is literally none of their business.


sh9jscg t1_izpiiqi wrote

Idk I’m usually on the same boat but I think this can be good advice for anyone in general

Maybe not “DO THIS NOW” but more like “ain’t too bad if you add this to your life”


THKhazper t1_izqh1vr wrote

I mean, as a general rule society expects everyone not in war or engaged in otherwise violent or extreme work, to have a sense of charity, decorum, positivity, and social life, all of which A. H. Covers, and that’s pretty much it, she says nothing of grooming, nothing of makeup or clothes, I walk around wearing work clothes 90% of the time, I look about as basic as it gets, but people will mostly judge me based on how I interact with them and others, not whether or not I picked my caveman unibrow or cleaned out my ears, though they might a bit if I haven’t bathed for a while


minicrit_ t1_izpkzqy wrote

I agree with you but I don’t think this is a gender specific issue. People expect a lot from people in general. I think it’s just how society works itself to keep moving forward.

Why do you redditors always have to be such a pessimistic buzzkill? Children are pure, innocent, kind. God, you're so annoying with your low opinion about them.


[deleted] t1_izpw0sg wrote

Lol I don’t have a problem with kids but it’s weird to assume everyone just wants kids running their hands through your hair every day - I’ll hang out w my friends kids and her at the park or give a high five but that’s too much


Shamanized t1_izqpcms wrote

She’s not literally saying find a child and make them stick their hands in your hair. God having to explain what she is saying is physically painful


palegate t1_izpnqyv wrote

You sure about that?

A person running their hands through your hair or playing with it can be rather stimulating. It can induce this nice feeling on your scalp, neck and all the way down your spine.


[deleted] t1_izpolom wrote

Lol yeah. I’ve had ADULTS run their hands through my hair, nice when it’s a bf or hookup. Not random children


[deleted] t1_izpyrng wrote

Based as heck. She was pure class, and had an approach to life that is sorely uncommon, both then and now.

Find rich people who had their children kidnapped. Sometimes the kidnapper sends the childs finger to get them to act and I bet those rich fucks don't even use the fingers afterward.
