The beauty industry, defined

June 13, 2012

The beauty industry exists because it has, over years and decades, convinced women that they need to look artificially good, even though they don’t need to look good for a man, and they need to be perfect at all times, even though no one’s perfect. And to be strong and free and fresh, they need to wear heels and lipstick and pants that slim you and bras that lift and separate your boobies, and somehow it’s either all a man’s fault or something we should deeply appreciate but never expect. Not ever.

Quoted from Ian Fortey at Cracked.

(I didn’t think the rest of the column was particularly amusing or insightful, but the above quote is really spot on.)
