Degrading Icons

When I log on to my email account I see many pop ups, including ones for diets, chat rooms where your icon is always superhumanly skinny, and pictures of models. What are young adults (girls especially) going to think? Our world is filled with harsh blows to our self esteem. You hear stories of people not eating or puking up their food. When are we going to start seeing healthy people as our idols?

We will only love ourselves when we stop worshiping the media. If you think the media, tv and advertising are going to to change, Keep dreaming. it's just buisseness and that's what the people want. You can only save yourself, keep your mind free.
