Rumor Willis posed for a Vanity Fair shoot and when she saw some of the photos, she noticed that her jawline had been altered to look slimmer. This same type of insulting photoshopping has happened to many celebs, including Zendaya, who complained when her hips were slimmed on a cover she modeled for.
It’s funny how no man I know of has ever had to complain about such things. Josh Hutchinson? Ashton Kutcher? Their jawlines have graced many a magazine with no alteration.
It’s bad enough that women are fed messages about not going grey, not getting wrinkles, or age spots, etc. But even the size of our jaws are being disrespected now?
What’s a square-jawed woman to do besides just “take it on the chin?” That is, if her chin is perfectly pointed to give her face a beautiful heart shape. You know, that feminine perfection that all women should either possess or find a way to possess. The clinical name is Jaw Reduction Surgery.
I applaud these woman coming forward to give a voice to the not-at-all subtle ways women are bullied if they don’t live up to unrealistic ideal of perfection. (Let’s not even mention numerous ugly slanders of a certain presidential candidate.)
It’s seems in America, women’s faces are fair game for unthinkable rudeness. A poison meal force-fed to us. No wonder I was sure I was a hideous she-creature after I was left. I bought into that myth. That I had become so less-than-perfect I DESERVED to be cheated on and left. Deserted for my imperfection.
I know now that is total nonsense. And I am so glad that younger woman can look up to someone like Rumor Willis and find strength and pride in their singular jaw-dropping beauty.
