I can’t help but feel that teenagers need to see what real people look like. A simple request that Seventeen refuses to follow. After all, they do make their money telling you what you should (unrealistically) look like and then selling products that (won’t) make you look that way.
It doesn’t take much to sign it, but will you? What about the youth in your life?
And more importantly, what effect does the trend of photoshop have on the trend of mental health for our youth? Sure, maybe the big issues like Bipolar, BPD, etc aren’t part of the equation. But there are still plenty of other less chemically induced issues that unrealistic expectations can’t possibly be helping with. This isn’t complex math.
