Reality Check: Beauty, Women, Distortions

I picked this up while browsing Seth Godin’s recent post over the weekend. He had it here, as part of a riff on the new world of commercial advertising on YouTube. Good post too, but I ended up thinking this Dove commercial on YouTube deserves special attention.

(If you don’t see the video, click here for the YouTube source.)

I assume you’re aware of how much we distort the supposedly ideal beauty in women. I am. But we forget. This is a bad thing. It hurts people, both women and men, and we should remind ourselves frequently.
