Check this out
It really shows how distorted the photos look compare to the real thing, I was especially blown away by the computer editing at the end, enlarging her eyes, elongating her neck!!
No wonder we are all screwed up body image wise.

The young girls today have such a hard time, no wonder with this type of false representation.

I was shocked that they even edited her shoulders.
I'm a fan of the comic strip Six Chix. A couple of weeks ago they had a picture of Eleanor Roosevelt as she was in the '40's and then a picture of her if she had to deal with the media today....quite poignant.
It is sad that although as a society we "say" we are more tolerent of the differences in others.........we aren't at all; otherwise we wouldn't have a homologous concept of beauty.
My youngest did ballet for 16 years and I don't even want to get into that distorted world.
I'm just wondering though if they do THIS much airbrushing/picture editing with men? Does anyone know?

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to show it to my 14yo. We got some info from Dove in the mail that was for teenagers to read. I was impressed. It had a set of little magnets with all kinds of words for moms and daughters printed on them. We put them on the fridge and I leave her little sentences like, "My daughter is unique and always beautiful. " and "Like being different." She gets a kick out of it and reads them to her friends over the phone.
She left me one..... "My mom is funny"
