Hey Magazines. Women Aren’t Retarded.

28 Jul

I find these stories really offensive.  The idea that women can’t tell the difference between manufactured images and reality is obnoxious.  While I applaud Jezebel for trying to expose that magazine covers are retouched the piece on Today made me furious — I don’t need protection from Redbook unless that article on using green bean casserole as a weapon has been revived.

Above is the un-retouched photo, which can still induce shame over buying and eating Dibbs.
