Media has been feeding our girls (and boys!) that there are certain standards to be considered beautiful and attractive. Unfortunately, our youth has assimilated them as true and as you can see, they struggle with so many complexes and issues like eating disorders, identity problems and other psychological problems that we probably didn't have growing up.
I am a fashion lover, and at least for me it's sad that our society has been taught that to be fashionable, in, hip or whatever you have to be thin to fit in designer clothes. I truly differ, I'd like to see more realistic models down the runway.
Browsing the internet the other day, I discovered that Dove is working on this awesome campaign to exalt real life beauty, not that photoshoped stuff you see in magazines and ads.
It's called the Campaign for Real Beauty. I saw the videos they had on their site and they are so touching! That's exactly why I'd like to share them with you. I want every boy and girl out there to know that they are precious creatures, individuals and beautifully special.
I'd like it if you'd check the link out and share it with every young girl and boy you know! http://www.dove.us/#/cfrb/
Tell me what you think? Is media the reason that our kids are growing up with so many complexes? I'd love to hear your comments!
