Today’s generation, until the end of time, will grow up with endless amounts of media and advertisements of all kind. One of the most hard-hitting topics is the way that body image has/will affect the minds of young children.
As I grew up, it was always stressed that little girls shouldn’t look to the Victoria’s Secret models as a role model. These are girls that are not only genetically gifted with being tall and small, but they have to keep up their appearance with diets, exercise, and most of the time, drugs.
This is not only a problem with little girls, we often times push boys to the back of the bus because they are too “independent” or “strong-willed”. I remember seeing endless amounts of Abercrombie and Fitch models in the windows. Six-pack abs, good-looking facial features, and a strong smell of “man” (aka not the best scent).
