oh how the times have changed
This is definitely worth reblogging.
i reblog this every time
Am I the only one who hates this photo? It’s still discrimination against certain women, and there is absolutely no difference between the medias intentions demonstrated in this photo as there is in the medias actions these days.
This advertisement is still telling girls that their body is ‘wrong’. That if you’re skinny, then you aren’t beautiful, and the only way to have this beauty is to gain another 10 pounds.
This isnt a positive advertisement, this is no better than the advertisements that are continuously complained about these days! Because this exact thing is still occurring, except the roles are reversed. Instead of fat being considered beautiful, skinny is.
Yet we believe that this ad is somehow less bad and even better than the ones we are shown now just because its not forcing us to be skinny. But the fact that its trying to make us look a certain way is the reason why it’s wrong, not the way it’s telling us to look.
The problem here isn’t how much we weigh or what we look like. The problem is that the media still portrays the idea that beauty is on the outside, and that your weight must be a specific number, and that isn’t how it should be.
