Beauty


what is real beauty? the reason i choose this essay was because i had agreed with the authors stance in this essay which was people dont know the real meaning about beauty. what stuck out to me was how much was how the author had said that people usually Photoshop people to make them more beautiful during campaigns. another thing i had notice was how the author says that people like to have natural beauty but in reality that is completely false because most people are having plastic surgery to make themselves more beautiful in my opinion the thesis was "is beauty really the only thing people care about." one direct quote that the author used that ties into her thesis was "like the rest of the genetic lottery, beauity is unfair. everyone falls short of perfection, but some are luckier than others. real confidence requires self-knowledge" the reason i choose this quote was because i think this quote was the authors thesis. one question i would as to the class is "what does beauty really mean"

  1. I feel like the picture you chose to go along with your exploration was really powerful. Sometimes pictures don't add much to the writing, but this one definitely did. The differences between the first picture and the second are definitely noticeable. I don't know why someone, especially Megan Fox would feel the need to change her body in the first place, which just shows how warped our society's view of beauty is.

  2. First of all I think that my girl Megan Fox looked better then, than what she does now. At least she had a tan. It is sad that people need to rely on plastic surgery to stay beautiful now-a-days. If we all had as much money as these "beautiful" Hollywood stars, we'd look like they did too.

  4. In my mind, after plastic surgery, a girl loses her natural beauty. She transforms herself because she saw something wrong in herself in the first place, clearly showing the lack of confidence. I can describe a woman after plastic surgery with one word, fake.
