    LMAO @ Kim Kardashian being made by Russian scientists…. it's sad but true. I am glad to be who I am. My body may not be perfect and definitely has its flaws but it's the little imperfections that make us who we are. I am me. Don't like it? Call Kim Kardashian and complain. She has a big mailing list.

    interesting that even on a joke list of desired attributes, there's no mention of 'African' anything.

    • Hannah says:

      ….or Iranian, or Australian, or Canadian, or….the list goes on. Why is 'African' the only one of these that matters?

    • Justme says:

      I think the list would have gone on for pages if she listed every single "ethnicity". First of all, what about "Jamaican dance hall ass"? There's a beautiful mix of ethnicities there and a large population of descendants from African slaves. And I think she pretty well stated that Beyonce (African American) was pretty much a top role model for beauty. Plus, that's kind of her point-unrealistic expectations of women no matter the background. Look at cosmetic surgery around the world. It's not uncommon for women in Korea and China to use skin lighteners or get their epicanthic folds "fixed" so they look more "white" (I hate the term caucasian), and white women get lip injections, butt implants, and breast implants to emulate more African/Spanish/whatever features.
