This video caught my attention when I was browsing Youtube, and for some unexplainable reason, it gets down under my skin.

Thoughts?

Oh, wow.
That was interesting.
I know what you mean by it getting under your skin, it made a beautiful woman [in the first place] into model material just like that.

Mhmm. I would be absolutely furious if I were that woman, because she's beautiful the way she is, and to make all of those adjustments to her pictures is like a slap in the face...

I wish I could form my own modeling agency, where nothing is edited, so the true beauty is shown. Then maybe girls would realize that they don't need long thin necks, big eyes, and model legs and breasts to be "beautiful." That fakeness is sickening.

That's awful.
Really.

Even beauty, should be portrayed as something that is outside, and inside.

I like what you're saying, Tiffany. But that's not the way agency's work. It's disgusting. I mean, sure, the woman looks beautiful after, but she also looked beautiful BEFORE.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder..and hell some peoples eyes are just set on botox and plastic.. I think its disgusting sure..but still it is what you want it to be and if it takes make-up and fakeness for you to think you are beautiful..so be it..everyone has a right to feel good..
If the world would ever stop spinning, perhaps my mind would have time to catch up..

I don't think the fact that models are tall and thin says much about what those involved think is beautiful.
In the fashion industry, clothing samples can't be available in every freakin' size. There must always be some predetermined 'norm' because that's how business works.
None of that is saying, '"hey! this is beautiful! you will never be this beautiful because it's impossible so hate yourself instead!" -- it just shows how susceptible some people are to conforming, how shallow, desperate, and foolish some people are.
I'm gonna quote my favorite book here -- On ne voit bien qu'avec le cur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

what quote?

p.s. On ne voit bien qu'avec le cur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. means 'one sees well only with the heart. the essential is invisible to the eyes.'
