The War On Women’s Bodies
These statistics are not only heartbreaking but alarming. The big question that comes to mind is – are the fashion industry and media to blame? First, you have to ask why they choose to portray such an unrealistic spectrum of what women look like. The simple answer is that it’s just good business. So that’s it, the problem is capitalism! It’s what we want to see and that’s why they’re selling it. What that really means though is that we’re the vein ones, not them.
It is undeniable however that the images we see in movies and magazines are only worsening this condition. If we want things to get better then that certainly wouldn’t be a bad place to start.
