This is pretty cool and eye-opening. I wish someone would do this sort of thing with male 6-pack ab models. 

They even Photoshopped the woman behind Selena’s arm, because apparently not only do celebrities have to be thin, but they must also only associate with other thin people…

Enrico Francis has been caught

This pisses me off so incredibly much!

This is ridiculous. And disgusting. beautiful people being photoshopped to fit impossible standards AND most of the non-caucasian women are being white washed so they look more “appealing” 

this. 

makes.

me.

SO ANGRY. I can’t find the words to say just exactly what I feel about this…gahhhhhh just no. 

AND THEY FUCKING PHOTOSHOPPED OUT “ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION” FOR THIS ENRICO FRANCIS DUDE HOLY FUCK

It is always good to remember that you can be lied to in pictures…

This is mesmerizing, sort of like watching a slow-speed car crash. Watching thin women suddenly have unnaturally tiny waists, boobs inflate, women of colour become whiter, even background people shrink away… it says something awful about society that this is acceptable. 

And it is acceptable, to enough people that it happens on a daily basis. We allow women to be manipulated into “ideals” that aren’t real to further the beauty industry & diet industry’s attempts to make all of us feel bad about ourselves. I hate the “real women” approach to smaller vs. larger women, but let’s face it, the images we are presented in the media, like these, aren’t real women anymore. They’re fantasies manipulated to make us spend more money on trying to be something that only comes from a deft hand with photoshop, and to make us hate ourselves more when we can’t achieve it. It’s disgusting.

This is really fucking unsettling.
