Bad things about the media..

Post by Beth@admin on Sun Nov 21, 2010 10:04 am

Helloo,
Well.. i hate looking in magazines and seeing the really skinny models, and i know the affect this has on teenage girls, this causes some girls to think "wow i wish i was that skinny" and then in some cases they try to become this skinny by developing an eating disorder.
What we don't see about these skinny models is how ill they get.

I have a friend who has an eating disorder, she gets so ill that she faints almost everyday, is that what we have to do to become skinny?
I don't understand why people want to be that skinny anyway, i know that some people do it to try and get more friends but..
I think we shouldn't have to change to make friends, a real friend accepts you for who you are and what you look like, if they don't then they arn't real friends.
I think the media really needs to stop showing all these skinny women, it has such a big affect on teenage girls

What do you think?
Love Beth I love you

i agree with all of you

but i do have to say i dont think media just affects girls it can and does (well did/does with me anyway) affects guys but in a different way.. with guys your always told you have to have big muscles , be fit and always down the gym, be quite atheltic to get girlfriends to get a proper job to be rich etc

and as im none of thoses things it can make you worthless not good enough etc to have a girlfriend

so i think the media can affect guys as well as girls but in different ways

Ye i agree Ghost Sad
The media has an affect on everyone Sad
Lots of male people i know worry about not being good enough, because of the men we see on tv, in magazine's etc.

Love Beth I love you
