Hating our Appearance

Hello there, beautiful!

This week for class, I had to read an article titled "Why It's Harder Than Ever For Women Not To Obsess Over Their Appearances". I was hooked before I even started reading.

This Huffington Post article is from 2014- yet nothing has changed. If anything, the way we view women's bodies in the media has gotten worse.

Just the other day it was released that GiGi Hadid- one of the most beautiful individuals on this planet- had her beauty marks removed. Because fashion.

No, no, no.

Photoshop is nothing new, but the direct effects of it still hit hard. On the other end of the spectrum, at least some people are finding the humor in things... 

Snickers just released this ad:

Is blatantly bad Photoshop what it takes for companies to realize they're being absolutely ridiculous or is this advertising campaign just as bad as the rest? 

When are companies going to 'get it'? I encourage you to read the Huffington Post article here.

With love,
