Although you should by no means give Zoo a free pass for this, I'd like to make it clear that magazines aimed at women - and most often run or edited by women - are the real driving force of the photoshop travesty. The red pen sheet above is chickenfeed compared to what the editors for Vogue cut, copy, paste and diffuse on photos of already unrealistically proportioned models. Zoo fail twice here, because they seem to be unaware of the fact that the "real women" angle they're going for should include the freckles, moles and "chicken skin" (seriously, WTF is that?) The perennial popularity of Reader's Wives proves that men like their women with "flaws" and all; because it makes them more accessible (to, um, objectify and fantasize about - sorry, nobody said we were perfect.)
