I have posted vintage ads like this one before, and every time I do, I get responses like this:
"I wish I could live back then when we knew what true beauty was!"
"What happened to society?"
"I agree! Real men love curves!"
So before it happens again, let me just say — you’re missing the point. And for those of you who might be wondering, this is exactly the point I mean to make by sharing this image: different era, same oppression. 
Throughout time and across cultures, beauty standards have changed drastically, but there have always been beauty standards. What do all these beauty standards have in common?
The idea that you need to fit a certain mold to be considered attractive, sexy, healthy or even smart and worthy of love and friendship.
The fact that the majority of bodies don’t fit the mold of what is considered most desirable. 
The beauty industry happily stepping forward to help rescue us from our own bodies by selling us billions of dollars in products that can inch us toward some unachievable idea of perfection. 
When you see images like this, it shouldn’t make you feel nostalgic or sad — it should make you angry. The hate we waste our lives trying to erase was created to steal our money and rob us of our ambition. 
Don’t let it win.

This comment is spot-on. 

Yes and yes to this comment.

Susan Sontag on Instagram, 1977

Needing to have reality confirmed and experience enhanced by photographs is an aesthetic consumerism to which everyone is now addicted. …
It would not be wrong to speak of people having a compulsion to photograph: to turn experience itself into a way of seeing. Ultimately, having an experience becomes identical with taking a photograph of it, and participating in a public event comes more and more to be equivalent to looking at it in photographed form. That most logical of nineteenth-century aesthetes, Mallarmé, said that everything in the world exists in order to end in a book. Today everything exists to end in a photograph.

"To me, animation is like magic. It’s not about making things move, but making things live. This is the domain of magic. And that is what I have always tried to achieve in my films—not just to move objects, but to breathe life into them and explore their inner being."
