Bryannarichardson's insight:

This is why girls change the way they look is because women are critical about their size. Girls have to help themselves and not let this stuff get to them.

article on reasons why eating disorders impact ones life

Michael Johnson's curator insight, February 27, 2014 3:21 PM

Girls that think about themselves are just way to over dramatic.  This is good for girls that think about their own body size a lot to read.  Because it is true that girls that are not thinking bout there body size are more fun to be with.  Girls that think about there body size are no fun to be with because they act weird and different like they are never comfortable with themselves.

Bryannarichardson's insight:

The media is not helping us all make us beautiful or that is what they think but they are actually  making us teen girls they we should be just like them. We should have abs and a nice looking figure or have no acne on our faces. The media is just making it worst for all of us and you.

The media makes younger girls think that they have to look just like them in order to be pretty.  I believe that this is not good for our society.  It is making many girls have eating disorders because they think that they should be skinny. It is really sad to see this.
