kim Kardashian is not as Perfect as you Think
Now, it’s tempting to look at this, say “so what,” and just move on — but, the practice of airbrushing women in magazines actually has real ramifications.
Take this pic of Kim Kardashian, for example. Opinions do vary — and that’s not a particularly flattering pic of her — but I think Kim Kardashian is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen.
Yet, in that pic they made her hips a little smaller, her skin tone more uniform, and her breasts, more symmetrical.
Now imagine you’re the average woman trying to compete with that. You’re not even competing with a stunningly attractive woman: you’re competing with an idealized version of a stunningly attractive woman. How much damage must it do to even gorgeous women to see these images and know that they can’t possibly measure up to the women they see in these magazines?
On the other hand, if you’re a guy looking at the airbrushed shots and thinking, “Wow, that is what hot looks like,” you’re being suckered because no woman, not even the woman pictured in the photo, is that perfect in real life.
