Campaign for Real Beauty Before and After

Dove's campaign named above has posted a video demonstrating the work and artifice that goes into producing images of women for promotion and mass media. Although Dove is not the first to provide this type of demonstration, it's illustrative nonetheless. And people wonder why I call all the work that goes into making women look like "women" a form of drag.

I saw that video on television over the weekend. Sometimes I wish I could point and click to make my freckles disappear and my eyes wider...but then I wouldn't look like me.
