One is a photoshopped image of Lindsay Lohan, the other is a size zero model, and I hope nobody ever really wants to look like either of these images. If this is what our expectations of beauty become, the people who look like this will have osteoporosis at 40, and otherwise seriously risk their health. Come on girls, read Fat is a Feminist Issue, and take up your rightful space in the world because we need what you have to offer. I think I actually prefer Kate Moss photoshopped into plumpness and Calista definitely looks better when she isn't impersonating a twiglet! I'm not advocating obesity, just the ability to find beauty in the uniqueness of women who don’t look like carbon copies of hair straightened, fake tanned celebrities. Watch these 2 explain why going under the knife is never a simple solution and how some of our self dissatisfaction, involves issues which can't be cosmetically resolved. Most of all, we need to cherish the people who love us for who we are, not what we look like, please!
