Browsing around today, I found a link to Don't Compare Yourself to Celebrities, a Pinterest board dedicated to pointing out Photoshops and showing before/after pictures of celebrities. You guys, this makes me sick. How are we ever going to be able to raise children who are comfortable in their own skin if all we can show them is picture after picture of altered women (and a few men) and tell them it is beauty?
Go browse through it. If you've ever looked at an ad and hated yourself out of comparison, this should make you feel an ounce or two better.
I wish we could make this media bullshit stop. I wish our kids could grow up in a world where being themselves is enough. How bad does it have to get before we realize how much harm we're doing?
