Do you believe we have a ridiculous standard of beauty for women in America? (37 second video in comments)
I tried to click on the link, but my phone crashed! :(
Weird. I've watched it several times on my iPhone.
1. Big boobs
2. Being thin
3. Thigh gap
4. Nice butt
5. Clear skin
6. Tight clothes
There are so many standards that, even subconsciously, really affect teen girls.
If there is they aren't aware of it
Not as bad as ancient Greece
But they photoshop what's on the inside! Every woman is beautiful in her own way!! ;-)
You know how I feel about this...
Can that be done on a 3-D printer?
She looks like an alien. The huge doe eyes. The elongated arms, legs & especially the neck did it in for me
I see beautiful girls all the time. So... Realistic.
I believe the media has an obsession with female beauty. I also believe that the average american is just fine with average good looks.
I didn't know how well things can be faked now while still looking somewhat credible. Women should all know this so that they don't get unhappy not meeting a standard that rarely is met in real life.
I have been s guest lecturer to an organization for "retired PlayMates." Plastic's does not always wear well.
Oh, I can't imagine... do you have pictures? ;-) No. I'm already scarred as it is.
My lips are sealed. However the "butt implant" was unforgettable.
OOH! Mental Floss!!
I'm gonna have to see how far I can do this on myself - how much can I Photoshop myself while still looking like a human. If I do I'll post a link.
Yes. She was perfect already without them having to do a thing to her.
I liked that girl just fine before they "fixed" her.
But I don't think the "after" reflects our standard for beauty. I'll bet a lot of us liked her just fine "before".
Hubby prefers the before
As a photoshop user for business purposes the overuse of software for post production on models is disgusting. But it "annoys" me that the Mrs. shaves her legs in summer. Gaia gave us beautiful machines. We should all feel comfortable in them all.
I find it amusing that men are the only ones saying no so far.
So the thing is, very few men would find the altered woman attractive. The ads these are found in are most often ads for women's products. The gang photoshopping are not trying to create what a man might consider the "ideal" woman, but rather what...
...a woman would consider the ideal woman. It's tragic. Absolutely tragic that women are made to believe somehow that. Size 0 is more attractive than a size 12. That freckles are anything less than one of the sexiest thing on earth. That...
... full breasts, grabble hips, soft bellies, and a big grin aren't the most beautiful things in God's great big world. So for the men saying we do not have an unrealistic expectation. They're right. Men do not. Women however absolutely do.
I ❤️ Shazam!
Thank you! :) and yes women think that that altered image is what men prefer.
Theres hope for me yet!
She doesn't even look human anymore
And yes we do have a ridiculous standard of beauty
Isn't that crazy? I knew they did stuff like this, but watching it unfold like that was crazy.
Is our standard ridiculous?
Because women don't look like that. But we are made to think we should. We are reaching for a standard of perfection that isn't real.
rehanna? I know you have every right to follow or unfollow. May I ask how did I offend?
other than spelling, that is.
Did I unfollow you?
I fixed that. You didn't offend and I didn't intend, or realize I had. I was checking my followers, and I must have done soon accident. You didn't offend me! :) sorry about that
Man. Aint a sad little baby. Wah wah.
Hey.... I wonder if I said that to chickencookie if she'd follow me..... Nah. Then she'd be answering my polls. €-:
