Man, fuck this video about like, beauty standards through the ages. A bunch of people have shared it on my Facebook and I want to throw rocks at all of them and just be like HOW DO YOU NOT SEE HOW STUPID AND SUPERFICIAL (stupidficial?) THIS IS?!
1. White-washed/western-centric video.
2. No shocking characteristics about what was considered beautiful at any of these points - even the larger women featured still will fit into today's standards OK.
3. Why skip around the world like that? It's not really a good indicator of trends when you act like beauty standards were consistent across the globe every year.
Stray observation: the less attainable bodies (for most people) appear to have gained traction in the '80s, but women have a long history of drastic manipulation to please the patriarchy.
