In this writing, we focused about how the media is negatively affecting the teenagers' bodies.
One of the popular brands among many teenagers is American Apparel. American Apparel is highly rated with good reasons: it has a clothing line that fits a variety of body types, unlike other brands whose clothes are only suitable to slim and tall people, plus the models of American Apparel were not often pretty. Many teenagers are concerned to the perfect images of models that they are exposed to everyday on the media. The images of models on media had huge impact on many teens. As a result, many girls stated that they wanted to lose weight looking at beautiful models on magazine, while boys wanted to build more muscles and be big, influenced by real-life role models.. Although some claim that images of models on media can be motivational to people who want to lose weight by exercising, in reality, many people are dying due to the eating disorder they have after being influenced by the images of models on media. Therefore the alluring images of models on media can harm teen’s body image destructively, many people are concerned with models and celebrities’ looks, and some people try anorexic methods to lose weight.
Many people have extreme obsessions of stalking glamourous models, which would lead to them having concerning thoughts about their bodies, This is very unhealthy for their mental lifestyles. Some women have extremely sharp eyes to notice appealing body parts, such as curves, hip bones that stick out, and especially, the thigh gap. Meanwhile, men look for the muscular and handsome real life role models to compare themselves. To illustrate, anonymous person K was very satisfied watching the “Victoria's Secret Show”, due to the fact that many of the models did not have hip bones that stick out, and having the thigh gap. The evidence suggests that anonymous person K was very delighted because the body she had looked more appealing than the bodies of the models on Victoria's Secret Show. As a final point, many people have disadvantageously sensitive personalities that compare themselves to the beauty of others and they become obsessed with it, which could lead them to have many concerns about their own bodies.
At the present time, there are people who believe that being skinny is the key to have beautiful bodies and faces. Some people may exercise to lose weight. In the other hand, some people may stop eating to lose weight, which is extremely harmful. Images of models and celebrities on media partly takes responsibility for anorexia that many people sufferably tolerate. Basically, Ali Tate is saying that Holly Hurt was a girl who was overly obsessed with her appearance, influenced by the celebrities on media and her boyfriend, who lost lots of her weight using anorexic method. As a result, she was skeletal and lost a lot of energy, until the doctor told Hurt that she was experiencing eating disorders. The evidence indicates Holly Hurt was unhealthy, due to the fact that she wanted to be skinny, and she thought being skinny would bring her popularity in school. Therefore, it is reasonable that the media has a great influence on many other teenagers by tricking them to think that being skinny is alluring.
Others may hold the opinion that pictures on (the) media are motivational to many people to exercise, girls through boys, which leads (to a) healthy lifestyle to everyone. In an article Dying to be Thin, Katie Ford argues that obesity is the primary issue that America faces. From the graph readers can assume that more teens are exercising to lose weight instead trying to lose weight with anorexic methods. Critics indicate that it is very safe to publish photos of media, due to the motivation that the media gives, which will make others exercise. Although this argument appears persuasive at first, the media can extreme harmfully affect many teens and adults, wiping out many other’s lives. According to article Dying to Be Thin, the evidence informs that, five millions are horribly experiencing eating disorders. In fact, approximately 1000 women are dying each year due to the anorexic methods to lose weight. The evidence indicates that there are many people who are suffering because of anorexia. Therefore, people are influenced negatively to the media. After looking closely at both sides of the issue and the evidence, one can see that, people are influenced negatively to the media.
The special negativity of adding perfect looking models on media, is that many girls are concerned about the beauty of the models and many people are losing weight by not eating anything. Not just girls, but many more people are highly concerned with the beautiful models, and sometimes people will try to find the negative things about the models to bad talk about them. In the future, people should not be concerned with anyone’s appearance, but instead their personalities.
