Candide was more sarcastic while in Beauty Queens it was more direct and straight forward. In Candide, Voltaire choice of words was for the more educated class of citizen in order to understand what he was voicing.

Some may argue that Hollywood directors and writers should not be burdened with the responsibility of avoiding the stereotyping of racial characters. However, these stereotypes poorly represent the traditions of ethnic groups, send out harmful messages to children (who are easily influenced by movies), and give very little opportunity to talented actors/actresses who are judged more on their race than their talent. By casting ethnically-accurate actors/actresses for characters, Hollywood directors and writers can help increase the racial diversity of actors/actresses in the movie industry.

This is stating that today's media is based off as a specific appearance which is bias and should be promoting that teens should be embracing their natural beauty. “One study reports that at age thirteen, fifty-three percent of American girls are “unhappy with their bodies, this grows to seventy - eight percent by the time girls reach seventeen” (SafeTeens, National Eating Disorder Association).

Beauty is tormenting, it is a poison that runs extensively than just physical discomfort , it corrupts the mind, the heart, and the soul. Not everything that is appealing to the eye is good. Currently, the women of this time are judged so much about their appearance, but people do not realize what women have to do to meet other people’s standards. The women of the Elizabethan era were only considered prettier if they had the whitest skin and the reddest cheeks. Not only did the women do this, but also the men.
Everyone wants to become a mirrored image of these celebrities and have everything that their ideal celebrity has. He states on how fans like to dress like their favorite celebrities in movies, or even grabbing at their clothes when a celebrity is only a few feet away. People who aspire to be so much like their favorite celebrities would even go through surgery to have a face just like their ideal. Burr’s wondered how these people felt when they came out of surgery and realized that they are the same person they were before the surgery.
