Received this link and thought I'd share it with you especially for the moms who have girls. You should show this to them so they can get a sense of how manipulated information given to us really is!

I have seen this before. There was a website a while back a professional photo editor you could call it and it had the big actors and singers on it with before and after photos. There was one of Paris and Nichole before paris was too skinny knobby knees and elbows and nichole looked fine. The after photo they had softened the boney look on Paris and a 3rd of nichole was gone just edited and scooted. How horrid is that? The site got too much traffic and he moved it but it was one heck of a look into the fake part of our ideals of beauty.

I've seen this one before, too, and showed it to my oldest girl. She was flabbergasted. She has a whole new sense of reality now.

Thanks for the link! It is important to me & dh to give our dds a positive image of themselves & help them understand that God made each of us unique and special.

I have seen this before too, and showed it to my girls then - it is certainly very enlightening
