virtual miss germany

Which of these women do you think is more beautiful? At the 2002 Miss Germany pageant, the eight finalists were photographed from the same angle without makeup. The portraits were then mixed into a virtual Miss Germany using computer graphic techniques. The picture at right is of the woman who later won the competition. Decide for yourself which beauty pleases you most. The research was conducted by Dr Martin Gruendl of the University of Regensburg.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
