    • I love this continuation of Marilyn Monroe’s history. It shows the huge impact she ad on others, and alludes to why it’s such a shame er history isn’t remembered more in depth more often. That $50 basically started an empire. It’s also kind of feminist for the time. Women are still getting shamed for photos they took getting leaked on accident, but Marilyn was able to take it and make a career. It’s also juxtaposed with her divorce. It seems like her husband really didn’t like her newfound independence.

    • I love that you’re researching Marilyn. She is one of my favorite women in history. I especially liked that you brought up her makeup. Not many people know how much she influenced makeup looks, which is such a shame. I also love that you brought up how free she was, and how proud she was of her body. She was not ashamed of it, and she was in good thought not to be.

    • Mae this was a really interesting read. Even though Marilyn Monroe is famous, I don’t think she gets enough credit. While her looks were a big part of her life, her charitable endeavors and the things she had to go through are often glossed over. I’m glad you zeroed in on them. However, I think that since you decided to focus on them, you might want to broaden the title a bit. The words “influential beauty icon” makes it seem like the article is just going to be about the aesthetic details or her life. It would be more accurate to make it reference how influential she was in general, so that this entry would allude to how her terrible upbringing contributed to the person she would be. The current tile is kind of limiting.

      If you’re looking for more info about the end of her life and how certain parts of her life are glossed over, I highly suggest looking into Hugh Hefner. He’s the founder of Playboy who famously scammed Marilyn and was so creepy that he bought the plot next to her grave so that they could forcefully “be together forever” once they were dead. He did it after she died so she couldn’t do anything to stop it, and he was recently buried about a year ago.

    • Thank you for your input Alexandria. I will be expanding on Marilyn’s beauty influences more in the upcoming posts, however, since this is only the first one, I decided to give more background information first to set up her story.

    • I have a small shih tzu dog that greets me at home everyday and I can validate that I do feel the urge to pick her up and force her to cuddle with me for my own comfort. She doesn’t liked being picked up at first but she definitely enjoys the comfort.

    • I love this! It is so true, I can’t tell you how many times I pick my dog up or other animals and love to hold them and cuddle with them. I thought the facts at the end were very interesting too!

    • Mae, this was a very interesting article. I never thought of someone saying ,”it’s so cute I want to squish it,” or “it’s so fluffy I want to die” as violent, but now that I’m actually considering those words, they are indeed pretty violent. It’s ironic that we use violent-related phrases to explain the joy-filled pleasure we fill when we se cute creatures. I think your post is very informative, and opens peoples’ minds to something new. Thank you for sharing!!!

    • My mind is blown. I don’t really understand why something being cute makes you want to squeeze it, but I have felt an aggression when introduced to a cute pet.That is so weird, and I’ve never really considered why until now.

    • The juxtapositions in the English language are so funny. The fact that too much affection can lead directly into aggression is also weirdly poetic in a way. You always find such interesting topics. I like your short tidbits because they always have stuff I’ve never heard of before. I hope you continue to share your unique scouting skills when it comes to writing longer posts. Thanks!

    • Mae, I thought your article was very intriguing. I have also always wondered if we live in a multidimensional world. I’ve never thought about it in a way that there could be another world that is within ours though. I have always thought about if there was another universe beyond ours. What do you think? Do you think that there is a world within ours that we can’t see? Or do you think there are multiple universes beyond ours? In this article (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/crux/2014/12/04/multidimensional-universe/#.WchrC0yZO9Y) it talked a lot about time travel, a 4th dimension, and transversal wormholes. It was a very interesting read and has a lot of connections to what you wrote about above. I’d be interested to see if you find more information on this topic and if you do I will definitely read it! Good response!
