Am I not pretty enough?

This video is worth watching... supermodels apparently still need help to look pretty.

you're a dude! i think it's less pervasive.

but make sure you remind your daughter that she is very very pretty, especially during her teenage years.

that's toatlly not true. you think they only alter female photos, but not male photos? the expectations of male beauty are just as ridiculous as they are for women, especially when you add the weight and societal presssures of "being a man."

But fortunately some guys don't even know what society thinks we should be doing, so there's no stress there. :-) Being genetically predisposed towards social cluelessness has some advantages.

Seriously, though there is a standard of male beauty that most men don't live up to, we're not (generally) judged on that metric alone. Other factors like income, education, etc., come into play more.

In the end, though, my wife likes me and likes how I look, so sod the rest of the world.

Cheers,
Matt

You're right, the number of males having eating disorders are rising too.

Though things aren't as bad for the male gender appearence-wise... yet. I wonder if this trend for going too far (eyelash augmentation, leg lengthening (in china), boob jobs, removing bottom ribs, etc) will reverse.

PS: I already told you, that you look cute.

Have you seen a supermodel in person? There's a reason they had to develop all those techniques, you know...

Hmm... good question, not in person, afaik. Just in TV.

1. You're prettier than the woman in the video.
2. It doesn't matter who is prettier than who.
