A miracle has occurred! Someone else noticed that the photoshopping bullshit has got to stop before people lose their damn minds and ever female in North America has a eating disorder! That’s right, the American Medical Association (AMA) has stepped up and complained about photoshopping in ads because, “Such alterations can contribute to unrealistic expectations of appropriate body image — especially among impressionable children and adolescents.”
Gee. how could someone ever look at the retouched photo and think of themselves as “fat” in comparison? And that’s not even mentioning the fact that, even unretouched, the model is probably very underweight for her height, which makes the “ideal” beauty hard enough for anyone to achieve.
You know what else you could do, AMA? You could make an effort to train more doctors not to be asshats that treat fat people like they deserve to die. Then the AMA would making even bigger strides toward a future free from fat-hate.
But I’ll take what I can get for now. Good job on the photoshopping thing, AMA!
Now, go forth and don’t believe a single thing you see in ads.
