Debating on the Internet

Two victim cards, neither of which worked.

The Dove campaign on beauty has something really interesting here.  But when they observe, “no wonder our concept of beauty is distorted,” I think they are missing something important. We have to be careful not to let egalitarianism creep in here. There is a difference between feminine beauty as a product designed for mass consumption, which they illustrate, and feminine beauty as a cultural discipline, which every daughter needs to be taught. The legitimate point is that daughters ought not to competing with photoshop.
