What’s so bizarre about using underage models is that the aspiration you create in the minds of your consumer is impossible to fulfill. 30-year-olds will never look 16 again. Instead of building a vision about looking and being your “best self” (what brands like Dove do with campaigns like Real Beauty, manipulative in its own way), this ad creates impossible dreams. And what strange dreams to have!



See? Ann Taylor uses extremely attractive but age-appropriate models

You would never use a 16-year-old to sell a power suit, right? Because women who want to look powerful don’t want to look juvenile. They want to look attractive, and sleek, and put-together, but nobody aims for “junior prom” when they want to rock an interview.
But when you’re trying to look sexy (as anyone who is purchasing fishnets and velvet pushup bras likely is), looking youthful is part of the aspiration. We’ve conflated “adolescent” with “sexy” for so long that it seems natural for a teenager to model underwear the way it would never seem natural to put her in a skirt suit

THIS X ONE BILLION

^Mmm-hmmm. To take it further, it's just another way to infantilize women so we don't have to be taken seriously.

Ugh, these time zones oppressing me!

So, because of the time that I changed majors and whatnot, I never took and didn't notice a low level political science course that I need to graduate... Except they still aren't offering it next semester, so who knows when they will.

It feels so ridiculous to have to go back and take a 1000-level political science course (Introduction to American Government) after taking a buttload of higher level political science courses. Like, srsly? I wish I could just opt out of it. But it's a major requirement, so that will probably never happen. Either way, I'm just saying that I'm pretty sure I understand the basics of the American government after writing countless papers on more advanced concepts related to it. Hmph.

Oh my goodness, Springcurl! Your poor eye.

On a positive note your eyebrow is awesome.

And where is my mfing order? I ordered Jane Iredale's cream highlighter 3 weeks ago and it is not in yet. It's a lovely light pink and is supposed to compare with Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfecter. I need it, 2 weeks ago.

Ugh, why are these males so unattractive? I can't! I have to get up at an unholy hour to be at work at an unholy hour then even my fatigue isn't enough to make these males less ugly! Time zones oppressing me! Work oppressing me! Ugly oppressing me! I can't with this world.
