Stop Looking in the Mirror and Start Living
Clem is exactly right. My personal feeling is that obsessing about positive body-image is as damaging as ignoring the fact that every woman in these 'fashion stories' (I just see girls playing dress-ups!) is very skinny and air-brushed to the hilt. Its just another way of re-inforcing the idea that our worth is only measured by the shape and size we are. Whether we realise it or not, this is what we are teaching the next generation of young women, that they should be worrying more about body-image than being healthy and a good person.
