The Onion: Men Pressured To Accept Natural Beauty

April 30, 2014 1 min read

I absolutely love The Onion, not only is their particular brand of sarcastic satire hilarious, but it usually hits the nail on the head when it comes to the heart of the matter. This is definitely the case in this Onion article about an increasing number of men who are being pressured to accept realistic standards of female beauty. the onion dove-real-600x319 This quote pretty much sums up the thrust of the article:
“More men are speaking out against the pervasive depictions of average women in the media, which have left them feeling demoralized and compelled to accept unwelcome ideals of beauty.”
The article is all about the deeply startlingly images of average women that men are forced to accept on a daily basis. The article is chock-full of witty statements from an anti-natural beauty standpoint, fake polls, and even quotes from fake sociologists like,
“For most men, it’s very discouraging. Instead of seeing only rail-thin models, they’re now exposed to accurate representations of women whose proportions mimic those of actual human females,”
to really drive home the ridiculousness of this concept. A very funny read, it points out the benefits of natural beauty campaigns in a subversive way, and brings some humour to the natural beauty vs photoshopped models debate. the-onion-compares-art-museums-to-jails-slover-linett-blog
