“How are you going to tell me to ‘eat like a man’ when you aren’t even weaned off of milk? Step down, boy.”
Advertising’s image of women. Watch this and get your mind blown.
This needs to stop.
I am not female but I really don’t think that matters. EVERYONE needs to see this.
she didn’t touch on how all of the media images are white.

what does that do to women of color if the ideal we are shown since birth is white women being the ideal? I will continue to ask and demand it be answered
Whitewashing happens a lot in the beauty industry as well. Here is a google image search for the word “beauty”, notice how whitewashed the entire thing is. There is barely any women of color, at a first glance it looks like there are none. Then when you look again, you realize there are some, but they have been photoshopped to appear whiter.
Also notice how every flaw is removed from women in advertisements. Even in shaving commercials women don’t have hair:
Look, she’s shaving absolutely nothing. She already doesn’t have hair.
Like, we just don’t let women in advertising have any flaws.
They don’t even let them have pores, apparently it’s hideous or something. But men can be considered handsome, with pores, wrinkles, blemishes, signs of aging. I will never understand why a man in his natural form is considered rugged or handsome, but a woman is only considered beautiful if she is heavily altered.
It’s really stupid, because I think women are still beautiful without removing these “flaws”.
This ia a high definition image of a woman where her skin is a little more realistic. Notice the faint crow’s feet, the pores on her skin, the facial hair underneath her lips and near her ears? That’s what real women look like. We aren’t made of plastic or porcelain. Nearly every image you see of women in the media act like we don’t even have pores. It’s completely ridiculous. They act like our faces don’t even have a texture.
