Even better - Seventeen Magazine agreed!
See, this is all very excellent. I did nothing so productive at 14. I may not have even had a smart thought until my mid-20's. Everyone is happy; feeling warm fuzzies...
Everyone except Alexis Jones that is.
Alexis Jones of Alpharetta, Georgia, said Thursday she'd worry that, if magazines portrayed young women who were overweight or had acne as being beautiful, some girls may think it's OK to live an unhealthy lifestyle. In fact, she feels making models' bodies thinner and their skin clearer can serve as positive motivation for people to take better care of themselves.
"Some people use that ideal image as motivation to get fit, eat healthy and stuff, while some use it as a crutch," said the 18-year-old, a rising freshman at Georgia State University. "You just have to be strong-minded." - CNN.com
Wait, whoa, what??
Alexis Jones seems to be making quite a leap from "not photoshopping" to hiring "fat, acne-ridden" models.
What the hell is wrong with Alexis Jones?
Seventeen Magazine wasn't hiring models that looked like Precious and using editing wizardry to come up with Halle Berry! Does she even know what photoshopping refers to?
Even photoshopped models started out as MODELS. And the kind of attractiveness it takes to be a model is already kind of unattainable for the most of us. Add some photoshopping to that, and it's completely unattainable which was the fucking point of the petition!
But how, in all that is holy, did Alexis Jones go from a photoshop ban to the inevitable hiring of mongoloids and tundra pigs?!?
Alexis Jones needs to go to a better school...I'm not sure GSU can clear up this kind of stupid. Maybe we can photoshop it out of her since it's apparently magic.
