    I shudder at seeing the words “flaws” and “defects” applied to a woman’s face. Or anyone’s face or body. In this photo, witness the birth of the beauty industry that makes its exorbitant profits by telling women there is something wrong with their natural looks that can only be fixed with expensive makeup or surgery. Sad.

    Would it make you feel better to use those terms applied to a MAN’S face? I’m sure you wouldn’t put a 70s Robert Redford on the same level as Jimmy Durante, for instance. Even men are judged, on screen and off, by their favorable appearance.
