I was surfing the internet today when I came across an article about body love on a teen website. The article was written as an effort to call awareness to the fact that the media does put pressure on women to be thin. I'm happy that the article was targeted to teenage girls because the pressure to be thin has gotten out of control to the point that even pre-teen girls try to starve themselves to death. My favourite quote from the article is: "Not only is the super-thin ideal out of date and unrealistic, but many of the pictures you see in the media are fakes!"
I'm glad the author chose to describe the thin ideal as "out of date and unrealistic", however, the only down side of this article is that I wish it were longer or more detailed....but considering the audience, it seems just right.
