Viva la revolution!

Are you kidding? They most certainly do have makeup on. It's lighter than the usual all-out slather so they get to call it "natural" and you laud it -- but sister, they're wearing makeup, quite obviously. I see lipstick on all of them; their eyebrows are all penciled in; there's eyeliner too at least on the top model; and, again albeit lighter than usual, there's some foundation and/or blush on all. And shall we mention the eyebrow lift and likely botox on model #1? Not a one of them is natural. This is no great advance to be crowing about. Sheesh.

Hmm. I agree with you about the natural beauty thing, and that females shouldn't all have to have loads of makeup, straightened hair, etc to look pretty and be accepted.

However, I only half agree with what you seem to be saying about the weight of people. In my eyes, being obese is not ok. It is unhealthy, like smoking. I don't think that being underweight is good either though, because that is unhealthy too.

In my opinon, the size that the media should be promoting would be a medium size. That way overweight people don't get the idea that it's fine to clog up all of your arteries and die from heart disease, and underweight people get the idea that it's not cool to feel faint and ill constantly.

P.S. Dpn't forget that there are some people out there who are skinny no matter what they eat, and you wouldn't want them to feel bad about their weight.

When I first saw theses women I thought they were going to be representing something about needing to eat healthfully...most women aren't that skinny naturally! I understand that lots of women remain skinny no matter what they eat but why do we have to be bombarded by only skinny women in the media!!! Where are those curvaceous beauties?
