Ok i have just found out that my cousin is bellemic(sp?) and im pretty upset because of this. And it has been happening for a few weeks now, and i feel guilty because i didnt recognise that there was something wrong... When i was talking to her tonight i asked her why she did it and her answer was "the guys at school, were laughing at me coz im not as skinny or as pretty as some of the girls at my school!" When i heard this i realised how much pressure we are under to look supermodel thin and to be gob-smackingly beautiful. This is totally impossible for us all to be like this... But it is the pressure of todays society that we are made to feel like this, teenage girls in particular. It is made worse by the celebrities looking all perfect and beautiful, and many girls wish to look as good as they do, i know coz im one of them. I think the media should stop and think about what this is having on ordinary people, who cant afford to use all the expensive cosmetics that the celebrities use... Im sure that if they didnt have the aid of this kind of thing they would look as ordinary as me! Most teenage girls are willing to go to drastic measures to achieve the perfect body.. they are forgetting to love themselves and it is being encouraged by the media, i think it is about time something was done about it. The number of teenage girls have eatting disorders have risen dramatically in the last 10 years, and there are some cases where they are committing suicide or suffering from eatting disorders so bad that it ends up killing them... What is ur feelings about this?
