I was on good old FB and saw a post a friend put up about the ridiculous beauty standards we hold. It show an average looking woman doing a photo shoot, then the magical transformation to turn her into one of the beautiful ones. The video really put it into perspective. I gotta quit wanting to look like them because they aren’t real. Got it, point made. However, the video doesn’t end there. Watch it here.
There is an ad by Global Democracy about a global proposal to encourage mandatory disclaimers when manipulating bodies in advertising. Sounds like a nice idea, I guess. I hadn’t heard of Global Democracy so I looked it up and it got a WTF response from me. They feel that if the People of the World vote on “issues”, then the governments and businesses will have to comply, thus making the world a better place for all! It’s nothing more than a bunch of public opinion poles. You have to register for the site to vote. I didn’t. It’s run by the POW (President of the World). I’m not sure what the real agenda for this is. I’m hoping it’s just a bunch of goof balls that want to feel that they are doing something important.
