What is wrong with people!?? Why won't the fashion and entertainment industries wise up and realize what kind of pressures they are putting on women?Â Little girls, pre-teen girls and teenagers are looking at these models and want to emulate them.Â It makes me sick that these children will grow up with self-esteem issues, bullimia, or anorexia.Â And models and actress are putting their health on the line for the sake of skinny.Â It's crap and it needs to come to an end.
As I walk around campus and go to school with these young people, I see these girls so tiny and worry that they may be too small.Â Â Are they giving in to the pressures of fasion magazines?Â
I know the Dove company is campaiging agains this kind of pressure and personally I think other companies should as well.Â I also think that the fashion and entertainment industries need to get their head out of their a**es and stop promoting stick figures as beautiful.
OK rant over ... have a nice day (and eat a cookie!)
