Photoshopping Camille

Talk amongst yourselves.

(wfs, unless you can also somehow hear my verbal outcry against this).

Re: Photoshopping Camille

Of all of the publications to photoshop her it is one that is about CrossFit. That is some real facepalm worth stuff going on.

Re: Photoshopping Camille

The fact that she is personally accepting of it, or maybe just tolerant of it because she's happy to get on a magazine cover, doesn't mean that it's not ridiculous. It's also a sad reflection on our society that she'd be photoshopped to look like a swimsuit model vs an athlete (with muscle).

Re: Photoshopping Camille

That photo has a ton of comments! Glad I saw this. Honestly, I breezed right over the post and didn't notice. But if you actually stop and look its painfully obvious that its heavily photoshopped if you have ever seen her before.

Anxious to see what type of response she makes, if any.

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet has the right to decide how her image is presented in the media. She shared the Box magazine photo on her Facebook and Instagram.
If Camille's good with how they presented her, and there's no indication otherwise, who are we to criticize her judgment? She has the right to make her own media decisions. To think otherwise implies a strange distrust in an adult woman's judgment.
I would've have expected that these complainers would have a higher regard for women's rights. It's 2014.

Re: Photoshopping Camille

I can see why people would be annoyed but the level of outrage displayed by something that is, let's be honest, incredibly minor gets old to me. It seems like there are social media warriors out there just looking for the next thing to rage on and this is one of those things.

Should they have photoshopped her body? Absolutely not. Not only does it not need it but the crossfit community has always been supportive of a more muscular female figure and being a magazine about crossfit you would think they would get it. In the grand scheme of things is it a big deal? Not really. I didn't even know the magazine existed until now and I have a feeling that a majority of people commenting saying they are canceling their subscription don't have a subscription to begin with.

Sometimes I feel like we just need to push the keyboard back, take a deep breath, and focus on things that really deserve our outrage.
