I really enjoyed the video on Link Love about photoshopping real women to be cover models. Ironkurtin (thank you for finding this video!) asked how we would feel if that were us. I thought I'd start a thread about it.

I too have often felt like it would be so nice to look like a model! But after seeing this video, I think that if someone did this to me, I would feel the same way as those women, like I was no longer a person to be interacted with and loved but someone to be simply viewed as "pretty" and kind of hung up on a wall, so to speak. I think that if I saw a photoshopped cover model version of myself, I would see body parts and pretty skin and beautiful hair but not a human being, an integrated whole, with character.

How about you?
