Perhaps telling girls and women that their bodies are beautiful regardless of how the media distorts our idea of femininity is a cliche concept at this point, but it’s still important.

For those of you still doubting your own innate gorgeousness, take a look at the ridiculousness that TV and magazines are feeding us- just one more time.

Jezebel got a hold of a few  Playboy Centerfold photos which had been marked up for editing by the graphics department.  It seems that even Supermodels and porn stars don’t fit our idea of ideal beauty.  Maybe that’s the signal that our ideals are a little ridiculous?

My thought has always been that you can have brains, beauty, and compassion, but  you have to update your idea of beauty if you ever hope to find the right combination.
