It's amazing how quick many people are to judge, as the recent news about the singer on "Britain's Got Talent" shows. I only caught a part of this news item, so I assumed the fuss was simply because a new voice had been discovered. I was shocked, when I went to youtube and watched the clip: the wolf-whistles and general laughter of so many. The derision was not, as one of the judges implied, because she made bold claims. The reasons were more base than that and I was appalled to witness just how much value, so many people, place of a 'certain look' or an expectation of what female should be. The happy upshot is how she took control - and, with the majesty of her voice, made hypocrites of so many.

I also found this - well worth a listen.



So, yeah - this especially struck a nerve with me - given how I often catch such venom in public spaces, being well short of anything like 'passing' yet (and for some time). The truth is, I know where I'm at and the side of petty meaness that is sometimes thrown my way - it has never cut me ... I refuse to allow a surface to define me. I'm so glad to see that this brave lady also understands the merit in defiance :)
