Afghan's Only Top Model


Being attractive and wanting to be a model does not make you a vapid shallow human being just like being smart and wanting to be a scientist doesn't make you an elitist snob.
I never said that it did. What the article says--and what I find interesting/unsettling--is that Afghan culture is growing to embrace our shitty American television shows. And your point about models/scientists doesn't change the fact that they're participating in a westernized beauty contest (and getting threatened while doing so). And I think that's unsettling.
