A Great Addition to Our Body-Conscious Society (moslty centered on women): Advertising
So I was stumbling (if you haven't done it yet, either get it or don't. I can't decide if I want to recommend something so addicting to someone or not... ) and I ran across this wonderful blog post that challenged the norm of beauty. Everywhere we go there is advertising. Most talk about or hint at the way a woman's body is "supposed" to look if she wants to fit into the status quo of beauty. The blogger did this for a project in school and she and her professor were satisfied at how it turned out. I think she did a wonderful job. Heres a pic from her blog (click on it to get a bigger pic). You can see more here.
