?To whom does the plastic belong

yuk, what a plastic girl!!

so as said my friend while watching the Lebanese star Haifa Wehby on T.V.
Haifa Wahbe

is she really a plastic girl?
or just an incarnation of a common social desire or a common perfect model?

society and individuals continuously interact as adherent mixture they could never be separated nor completely decomposed .
we may say individualism is the 21th century biggest accomplishment but at what extent could the society insure this? specially if there is some huge types of societies : which may be tolerant and urban or tribal and extremely strict.

for social psychology , there is some certain facts one of them affirm that :
society and people co-affect each other
in thinking , relations in between and as a direct influence on reactions , behaviors and attitudes.

how do society mold people and form them into the system? society has many different techniques : some of them are consciously done , running from elder to younger and some are just spontaneous 
heritage , most people act them without even thinking about .

One of these social techniques is SL theory : Social learning theory which is " a perspective that states that social behavior (any type of behavior that we display socially) is learned primarily by observing and imitating the actions of others. The social behavior is also influenced by being rewarded and/or punished for these actions."  

a very explicit example of social learning application is fashion, which acts like a leverage ,holding both rejection and acceptance at hand.
And some sociologists say that fashion is a way by which society controls people as it includes fashionable clothes, body shape, way of thinking , literature taste , music 
and even life goals.

we all experienced that SL leverage someday at school , college , club , down street , metro station , anywhere ..
specially if we r different physically..
But not everyone could stood his ground and react toward social controling as he wants and believes , we are not all Dorothy Counts .
moral durability is never the same for each one , and we have to be merciful to the weakest person that's why we are defined as human being.

i dedicate this blog to my friend , who called after Haifa the plastic girl ? i wanted to thank her for pushing  me 
wonder : whom is the plastic one ? is it the victim or the criminal ? the plastic girl ? or the plastic social norm related to a plastic superficial society?
