    Reblogging because I want all of my followers to be aware of just how much you can do in Photoshop, and how little of what you see on posters, in magazines and of pictures on the internet etc. are necessarily real. 

    Imagine how the model feels, too. She was hired to be the most beautiful, but they still had to change her because her beauty wasn’t enough.

    Not only is the general body distortion completely gross, but notice that they lighten her skin color. This is a white, blonde model, and they make her whiter. Actual white people aren’t even the ideal whiteness, so can you even imagine what models with dark skin have to endure in this industry?

    so for all you girls that ask “Why can’t I look like the girls in magazines” it’s because the girls in magazines don’t even look like the girls in magazines.

    Here’s How The Media Should Be Talking About Fat People But Don’t Have The Courage To

    When was the last time you saw people of all sizes in the media? Unless it was a commercial promoting just that, uhhh — try never! Bullying based on weight is a bad cultural habit that’s still alive in the mainstream. Diverse shapes should be celebrated, not maligned. The people in this campaign are proudly showcasing their beauty for all to see. Hopefully their hard work helps others to do the same. See more here.

    Watch A Hilarious Actress Shut Down People’s Body-Shaming Comments About Her Outfits

    Indian-American actress, producer, and writer Mindy Kaling gets called a lot of things, but “brave” shouldn’t be one of them, according to her. She talks to Jimmy Kimmel about backhanded compliments on her weight and why she chooses to wear the clothes she does. Then she gives us a bit of realtalk about how amazing her job and career are so we don’t need to pity “Mindy Kaling the sea monster” (if the tabloids had their way!).

    5 Reasons Why My Girlfriend Thinks She’s Not Beautiful Enough, No Matter What Anyone Tells Her

    These are the kinds of facts that remind me how strong the confident women in my life are, and how unfairly difficult that has been for some of them to achieve, given how many parts of society seem to be determined to make them feel awful about themselves all the time. Let’s be real — we’re fighting an uphill battle against all the things on this graphic.
