The Social Construction of Beauty and Nationality
Caught this store on Honolulu. So Brazil gets associated with beauty, and beauty gets associated with musculature for men (well, 2 mannequins) and sex for women (quite a few more mannequins), and these associated perceptions get further institutionalized through a small business all the way in the middle of the Pacific. Hmm...doesn't Brazil have outrageous levels of plastic surgery?
