I have reblogged this an innumerable amount of times and I won’t stop. The media spreads this false image to its viewers and we wonder why our self esteem as a whole is so distorted. It’s because the images so constantly shoved down our throats is.
the jennifer lawrence one is crazy omg
I know this is colour and I’ll delete it soon but this goes out to every girl who wishes they could be like the actresses and models they see in magazines. The media is deceiving you and distorting your view on what ‘beautiful’ is. Fuck the media, you’re all gorgeous exactly the way you are and any magazine would be lucky to have you on their cover
wtf why do they change them?! it’s so stupid! all these women are BEAUTIFUL and they make us think that they might have a “better” body than they do but nooooo. i really don’t get it. they make teenage girls want to look like them but its not even them. it’s ridiculous! ugh I hate it, HATE IT! it’s not just fake, it’s disrespectful to the people who are getting photoshopped! it’s telling them that they aren’t good enough when they are! they’re gorgeous. UGH I JUST HATE PHOTOSHOP UGH RANT OVER.
I’m so done with this planet
the american media is literally the asshole of the universe
Good grief. She saves two people’s LIVES and all you can say is “Your boobs are showing?!?!”
why do plus sized models have to be called “plus-sized” why can’t they just be called “models?” it’s like when they say “gay marriage” why can’t it just be “marriage” i’m so sick of society and their stupid theories of what is right and what is wrong bye
Fun fact time: many of my old acquaintances still make joking comments whenever they see me wearing pink, because as a child (and honestly pretty much right up to high school) I would refuse to associate with any pink objects.
It wasn’t because I didn’t like pink, it was because since I appeared female I was supposed to/ it was immediately assumed that I did and therefore it pissed me the ever-loving fuck off. I was ashamed to like it, which is terrible because pink is an awesome color. But when you shove it down young girls throats it gets really old, really fast.
Give the child the fucking rainbow, and if they pick pink, it’s not because they are female and/or effeminate, it’s because they like the color pink.
Illuminating Quotes, Visualised. Part I:

Reporter: What made you lose 37 pounds?
Raven Symone’: The pressure of society.
Finally a celebrity who says the real reason
Finally an actor who speaks the truth. Society makes girls think that they have to look a certain way or people in general will not accept them
I’m pretty sure that in an interview, that someone told her that she looks beautiful she said:
“I was always beautiful, now I’m just thin.”
Oh hey look, a 12 year-old just grasped the main concepts of The Hunger Games more accurately than most media networks.
Look at the difference. See the image our modern media is promoting little girls to have.
Here’s the babe I’m obsessed with, just iPhone camera photo quality, but yeah. I’m happy with it.

Seriously. Other than for actual health reasons, most people want to lose weight because we have been socialized to believe that a certain body shape and size is the “right” one. We spend time feeling crappy about ourselves, wasting our time and talents obsessing over our bodies. What if you knew, in your heart, your body was beautiful just as it was? What would you do with your time and energy? How would you treat yourself? Times change, ideal body images change, but it’s just socialization. It’s a made up reality. Love yourself now.
