This .gif has made the rounds on the internet the last couple of weeks, but deserves further viewings. When Jennifer Lawrence, in all of her youthful, god-given beauty is on your magazine's cover, isn't that enough? Or, as Buzzfeed puts it, "If we’re digitally editing perfection, what hope is there for the rest of us?!"

So why did Flirt find it necessary to photoshop her appearance? If you don't think a 23-year-old actress considered almost universally to be the hottest thing in Hollywood looks good enough for your magazine cover, maybe you should just stick to Japanese anime.
From the bottom of our hearts, Flirt:
Fuck outta here. I mean. seriously, how is this not inspiration enough for your readers?
