Mad World - Positive Body Image

School commercial for inner beauty.
lucie johnston's insight:

"Who says you’re not beautiful"

 

This article is about teenagers having body image issues. 

That too many young girls are going on diets when not needed and they go to far, that you shouldn’t take noticed of the modals in magazines because they are photoshoped and unhealthy. 

It’s on the outside that counts and they show girls that are smiling because they are setting an example of how you should like your body. 

 

This is a good video I really like it, I rally think it gets the point across to the views.

Why Some Young Women Are Going off the Pill and onto Contraception Voodoo

Why Some Young Women Are Going off the Pill and onto Contraception Voodoo | Stay in control- lucie johnston 2 | Scoop.it
Many twentysomethings are resentful of their birth control options, and so are choosing to use nothing at all.
lucie johnston's insight:

This article says that you don’t need contraception, you can just get an app on your smart phone called period tracker. But you can’t always rely on that because 21% of women get pregnant still. 

 

But there is a plan B, to get the morning after pill.

 

I think this is a good article because it shows other ways not to get pregnant other than contraception because some people don’t like it. But in my opion I don’t think its a good idea its to risky.

The artical is saying that Parents and school officials should make condoms, in addition to sexual education programs, more readily available to teenagers.

 

I agree on this artical it is a good idear to reduce STIs, whatever it takes.
