    I simply do not understand this practice. Do you?
    Why do I have to be inundated with false images of women on a daily basis? I suppose they do it with men as well, however to a lesser degree. Movies, in print, billboards, and TV… I am getting sick of it really. Do we really want to see women this way? Is Hollywood catering to what we want or are they giving us a skewed version of reality based on what they think we want?
    It is everywhere. Airbrushing and digital retouching abounds and it simply disgusts me. I just watched Christmas Vacation and noticed something spectacular. Remember that hot counter girl that Clark envisions swimming in his backyard - Oh my gah…I saw cellulite. I sure as hell don’t think that girl is hot anymore.[​IMG] I mean come on. I feel as though I am watching CGI animation and not real women. I don’t understand why people even bother with Playboy. Why not just download anime porn?
    So what do you think guys and gals? Will you be blinded and horribly disgusted by the site of a non-retouched female? Do the veins in the hands of a woman turn you off or maybe a slightly not-so-round bottom? Do the slight divots and skin variations in the female thigh appear ugly? Do you enjoy looking through all the filters and fuzz at female images in magazines?
    Good Grief

    You must have missed the "women with moustaches" thread from a few weeks ago. The guys on this forum are all groaning, "Oh no! Don't get Janna started again!"
    I'm not biting this time!
