I was linked to this post:
It's of Eva Longoria, without makeup.
I've never watched Desperate Housewives nor did I know what Eva Longoria looked like, but I saw these pictures first and then saw her in makeup (as usual), and... seriously. There's NOTHING WRONG with her without makeup. In fact my first reaction is "she's cute." It was obvious that these are paparazzi pictures and that she's probably not at her best, but still. Seriously. She looks better than the average person by far.
So once you look at those pictures, scroll down and look at the two pages of degrading comments made by complete assholes who are totally out of touch with reality. You've got a bunch of "UGGGGHHHH"s and "WOW WTF" and "UGLY FUCKING BITCH" and all of this other hateful stuff that is just... out there. Like I said, I don't even know who Eva Longoria IS, but I'm sure that even if I was used to seeing her on TV and the like, I wouldn't be nearly as taken aback as these assholes are.
I can only imagine that the people in this community have serious image/health problems themselves, as they seem to be trying to achieve some impossible standard. Seriously, you don't have to strive to look Photoshopped in real life. Go outside, make real-life friends, socialize with people that interest you beyond simple looks. Stop living in a TV world.
In unrelated news I think I'll actually try to use the "Music" feature from now on in LJ... or see how long I can go without forgetting.
