When I started to read this article I thought it would be about how every woman is beautiful and how the media has warped that perception. Little did i know this was an article about how beauty is a scientific fact. There is such things that humans look for to show a good mate like symmetry and soft girly features. In a Dove campaign they took a beautiful girl and altered her appearance to show what the media does. the surprising part is that the article shows how they just made a pretty face more beautiful , which shows how the media has given us unrealistic standards. This article argues that there is such a thing as pretty and ugly people.
I think this articles thesis is that there is a harsh reality and there is a scientific fact of beauty; it also states how the media gives us unreal standards for beauty. "there's only one problem: Beauty exists, and it's unevenly distributed. Our eyes and brains pretty consistently like some human forms better than others." Not Everyone is beautiful it is a cold fact, but most every human has flaws and everyone wishes they could be different some how.
Do you think there is such thing as "every woman is beautiful" even with all the scientific evidence?
