I choose ugliness

Serena Williams is an athlete. Her legs are strong, her muscles well defined. Her legs are toned- not an inch of fat anywhere- but they are not thin. And without those legs she would not be the world-famous athlete she is.
Why then the need to photoshop those legs to the point where they resemble those of a Barbie doll? Why take a body that has been perfected by hours and hours of hard work, and replace it with something that looks like it will topple over if you shove it?
If that is beauty, I will choose ugliness anyday.
A Drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.

Natasha - I have never understood this obsession with only one kind of 'look.' There are so many ways to be amazing...
