See why we have an absolutely ridiculous standard of beauty in just 37 seconds
[link to www.upworthy.com]

A lot of women/young girls don't realize the amount of photo shopping and altering of photos there is to make the "ideal" woman.

No one is perfect and women should instead be taught to embrace who they are. The obsession with youth, plastic surgery, and basic fear of looking old is unhealthy.

I'm not saying don't wear make-up or try to make yourself look attractive but most women have to accept they are never going to look like a super model and are beautiful in there own way.

I'm okay with my crow's feet, I've earned every single wrinkle and gray hair I have.

Excellent video. I recently saw a picture of Kate Middleton, well two pictures actually. It was from a charity event she recently attended. First picture shows her on a flight up stairs and she looks like a tired young mother (lines around eyes, mouth, skin a bit blotchy). Second picture, same event had been airbrushed and photoshopped until she looked like a supermodel.

Re: See why we have an absolutely ridiculous standard of beauty in just 37 seconds
I was standing in the 5th Ave. next to this argentinian actress I kept bumping into in my teen years. Fact: New Yorkers were crazy about me and not her and I couldn't understand it. I was 18. I also wonder if this world is real when I kept bumping into her all the time while living in different countries on every holiday or even short trip. She's very pettite and did "The nanny" argentinian version, but at that time she was the hottie with the giant boobs she then got reduced because they were growing out of control... lol

Because in real life, they look average.

That girl had a very nice figure and nice feet. Not much to do on her to make her smoking hot

So - if we had complete control of how our bodies looked, what would we choose to look like!?

My point is if she were to be featured in an ad looking like the before pic someone would be fired. It's the expectation of beauty these days and young girls take it hook, line and sinker.

I bet at least 99% of us would choose to look healthy and beautiful! But that doesn't mean we would choose to portray ourselves as someone else.

I have a cousin who photoshops all of her pics she has on-line and even on dating sites. She's an attractive woman as she is but if you were to meet her in person you would be disappointed because she doesn't resemble her pic LOL

She was telling me one time that guys she met for dates weren't asking her out again after the first date. I wanted to tell her she was guilty of false advertising but I didn't have the heart to.
