I am a fan of life. I love yoga, Indian food, surprises, keeping busy, friends, family, and strangers. I am forever a student, learning always, because that is simply the way I like it.
Eating disorders are a disease, not a fashion statement (as Queen Brooke Davis once eloquently put it). Not that all or any of them truly have an eating disorder, I’ve never seen any of these models in person, I don’t know what’s photoshopped or airbrushed. I also don’t know their fitness levels, their eating habits, their bodies natural inclinations, or really anything else about them other than what the company puts forth.
And I don’t take issue with the models, per se. Being naturally thin is great and beautiful, and all that. But so is being naturally curvier or naturally bigger. I would take no issue with their display of thin models, if they also incorporated bigger ones. The point is, these campaigns taint young minds. Their advertising is ENTIRELY based on a body type that less than 5% of human beings naturally have, thus creating the idea in minds across the globe, that they will not be good enough until they look like these impossibly thin, also airbrushed, also photoshopped models.
Shout out to all the enlightened minds who visualize these ads and think nothing of them, to the minds who are far too comfortable in their skin to let advertising affect them. I salute you.@1 day ago
