Nipples on mannequins
The ever growing trend of including this part of anatomy on mannequins is absurd. It indicates that the mannequin mold creators (whoever they are) A) expect women to go braless all the time, B) want to show off that, with the piece of clothing on display; even if you're wearing a bra, it will look like you're not in the worst way possible, or C) are utterly dedicated to anatomical correctness. The first two are just stupid, and if it's the last one, the mannequin better have a colon, too.
The assumption that, because I am an American woman, losing weight is the key to my happiness.
I'm in college and the book for my PE class just straight out asked if I was committed to losing weight. Not getting healthier. Not starting an exercise program. Losing. Weight. It's just a mirror of our society at large. Not everyone needs to lose weight, by the way! Assuming as much is just plain rude and possibly harmful.
