We have heard a lot of complaints lately about magazine covers with famous female models and movie stars photoshopped to look thinner or otherwise more attractive. Flattery is actually something artists have done in portraits of famous women since Ancient Egypt. So the important difference between the Mona Lisa and the cover of GQ is not that Leonardo da Vinci didn't have Photoshop, it's that no woman back then would have publicly embarrassed herself by whining about superior beauty. But today whining is practically a religion - the answer to every problem it seems. So even though the thousands of average-looking women we meet in real life prove beauty is as rare as gold, we're supposed to believe a few photoshopped magazine covers really do make women feel bad AND that these women aren't just resentful of a beauty greater than their own? No. Sorry. If we told you these photos of Mia were photoshopped would you find them more beautiful or less? The truth is they weren't photoshopped at all so if you said more OR less you'd be lying. Not a pixel was changed. So the beauty has not changed. Beauty is beauty regardless of how it's created or how much we have of it. And whining about beauty is just whining about beauty regardless of whether it was created by playing with pixels on a computer, dabbing paint on a canvas, or mixing genes in a womb.
