Those silhouettes are crazy tall and skinny. Just more reminders of the beauty standard we should all strive to achieve - the impossible.
Note: Not everything I post is “ad-busting” or “feminist” or deep or thoughtful. Sometimes the stuff I post is just fun, silly, quirky, etc. and that’s OK.
What’s being implied here is that flats are frumpy and heels are fabulous. Whatever, Häagen-Dazs. At least my feet don’t hurt.
Submission: Leggy ladies
Here’s an image that was submitted by a reader.
Can we talk about how ridiculously elongated this woman’s legs are? I realize they are playing on the text that says “stretch to the max” but they didn’t need to distort a woman’s body to make their point. Images like this contribute to the unrealistic beauty standards that women feel pressure to live up to.
Here’s another example of an ad I busted that makes stereotypes about the kind of things women are interested in.
It pisses me off that beauty is always associated with youthfulness.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE YOUNG TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
