20 Stock Photos That Prove Just How Much Betches Love Shopping

We all know that stock photos aren’t particularly wonderful when it comes to representing actual people or human experiences–they’re more like realistic cartoon humans doing exaggerated poses to reflect mangled stereotypes. Gender roles are especially prevalent in stock photos, and women are portrayed as flattened, primarily thin, white, and conventionally attractive approximations of humans. On the upside, these little cartoons are pretty hilarious, if you try not to think about it too much. Here’s the 20 most ridiculous stock photos of women shopping, because goddamn, women LOVE shopping.

      I have big concerns if those black pumps in #7 elicit that kind of response.

      Your captions are even funnier than the pictures themselves. Also, number six looks so weirdly like Scarlett Johansson. Right?
