Transcript of Do magazines marketed for teen girls send the wrong message?

According to Anastasia Goodstein, for Huffington Post:
80 percent
of girls have purchased an item as a result of an ad from a teen magazine.
63 percent

Girls become convinced that they require particular fashions to belong in a society that emphasizes materialism.
Teen magazines drown girls with stylized pictures of society’s “ideal” beauty.
“Beauty” to magazines mean:
being 6 feet tall
weighing 105 pounds
a clear complexion
When teenage girls do not meet that airbrushed ideal, they begin to hate themselves and their body, when they are beautiful the way they are.

These magazines are filled with instructions on how to get a boyfriend and look sexy.
They encourage what the American Psychology Association refers to as "costuming for seduction" or dressing provocatively to attract male attention.
The girls reading teen magazines begin to digest and believe the message that they are only sexual objects.
