Dazzling...have you noticed that we as a society have practically succumbed to a lifestyle of the sound byte...very little conversation going on between families, and we wonder where people who crack and go off the deep end actually broke...i can guarantee our postal style shooters were talking at some poiint to someone...noone was listening and noone was talking back...this is our norm in society these days. We need more real reality, less of the touched up version of life we see daily and life is not perfect, neither are these models or our politicians or actors or sports players....all are just the same as us, just got lucky enough to find a well paying glorified niche in life

This is outstanding! Thank you for posting this. We would be delighted if you would consider entering this video in Suuse's discussion about "Photoshopping" in the group "For Women Only" or as a stand alone continuation of the discussion - and please join us there if you would like - we would love to have you with us!

This is a topic very close to our hearts. It should be for men too, as their sons and grandsons are growing up with an unrealistic view of men and women. As Suuse pointed out, pictures of men are photo shopped to an astonishing degree too.

When I published my first travel brochure in 1994 - I decided to go with an entirely illustrated format with in depth text on each hotel property, because at the time, there was a back lash against pictures of Caribbean hotel properties that were unrealistically touched up, it was so rampant throughout the industry, it lead to lawsuits! My timing was right, and the idea was a success. I would not be as successful with this idea today. The general public has succumbed to the relentless myths of perfection - and purple prose sound bite descriptions of one sentence or less. If the reality does not match the photographs - too bad so sad but there are now legal disclaimers to solve these problems - one must read the mice type terms and conditions with care.

How can we change all this? Is it too late?

You are welcome, frankly I am annoyed constantly by the new marketing to us women over forty. It is truly insulting that we are suppose to buy into models and movie start that are our age not having a single wrinkle on their faces, nor an once of fat on their thighs.
