When my daughter first showed signs of hating herself, I got out photoshop. We went and found an image of her choosing, of a woman. I spent the next two hours showing her just how easy it was to alter this woman. I changed her hair, whitened her teeth, made her thinner. I erased her blemishes and even made her taller while my daughter sat there aghast. At the end of it she loudly said - ” THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
I told her that damn near every image she saw of people in magazines, on television, etc, was altered like this, and that she should never compare herself to that, because even supermodels don’t look like supermodels.
I wish I could do that for every child. I wish it was a mandatory class in school.
I AM SHOWING THIS TO EVERYONE
I SAW THIS IN CLASS BEFORE. THE TEACHER WAS ALL LIKE ”please, never compare yourself to people you see in magazines. They’re always altered. It’s as easy as that.” I ALMOST STOOD UP AND YELLED ”AMEN, MISS. AMEN.”
This Dove campaign.
When advertising becomes ironic and does us some good.

This is a right way to observe wild animals, they should not be kept captive in zoos.
I said that once in highschool and EVERYONE fucking yelled at me.
The animals are observing them. Awesome.
A hell of a lot better than zoos. This would be awesome. They can live their lives and have us come to them every once in a while.
OMFG THIS LOOKS SO FUCKING COOL.
