Oh… 2003 Aug 09

Oh, so this is how we lose touch with reality about how women actually look
Check out these shots of a bikini woman — you see the “final” image when you first visit. Then put your cursor over the image to see what it looked like before digital processing: Bikini Girl.

If one is wondering how we develop impossible standards of beauty that give girls and women neurosis about how they look, perhaps it’s because we quite literally have imagery that is inhuman. Anorexia, botox, liposuction and many other ills seem to me quite intuitively linked to producing expectations in females that are not possible to obtain.
