What Muffin Top?

If you're going to Photoshop a woman to make her skinnier, don't forget to unnaturally manipulate her shadow as well:

Aren't you dying to know how the girl looked pre-Photoshop? The fact that she was overweight and got a boob job seems sad to me, though I'm not sure why, since it seems like skinny girls with boob jobs should seem sadder. I suppose that probably falls into the same category as skinny girls looking fine eating fatty foods.

Oh. I had no assumptions about whether or not those were real. Like the blogger at Feminist Philosophers said: "it’s really tough to get breasts that big while keeping everything else skinny." I think it only looks so unnatural because they digitally scraped away all of her fat.

How about the question I have from male friends now, "Maybe they left the model but photoshopped the shadow in." Cause you know, that's what always happens.

"Maybe they left the model but photoshopped the shadow in."

Wow. Talk about denial.
