Every day on the way home from work I pass this billboard.
And every day it turns my stomach. Apparently a lot of women must find this image appealing or this company would not use it in their advertising.
Let me explain something to you young ladies out there who want to look like this: The ONLY way you will achieve an extreme waist like this is either through Photoshop or by having your lower ribs removed. It is as unrealistic to strive for a body like this as it would be to hang by your feet every day in hopes of adding 6 inches to your height. You are setting yourself up for failure, and I don’t want that for you or anyone else.
Here’s a concept: maybe if we women stopped obsessing about our size so much and/or stopped listening to unrealistic concepts about body image and instead focused on being healthy and also achieving other goals in our lives, we’d be a lot better off. THAT would be real, honest to God Women’s Liberation.
