The Affects of Media on Body Image
Transcript of The Affects of Media on Body Image
eating behavior that occurs in women and girls who read fashion magazines. Dove Evolution Commercial Liquify in Photoshop A study found that the amount of time an adolescent watches soaps, movies and music videos is associated with their degree of body dissatisfaction and desire to be thin. 58 percent of female characters in movies had comments made about their looks, as did 28 percent in television shows and 26 percent of the female models in the accompanying commercials. The commercials aimed at female viewers that ran during the television shows most often watched by teen girls also frequently used beauty as a product appeal (56% of commercials). One quarter of all television commercials convey a message related to attractiveness. Facebook often features advertisements picturing unnaturally thin women, and slogans saying "are you fat?" or "try the supermodel diet!" Adolescents, often seeking approval from peers, may be affected intensely by negative comments and cyber-bullying The need for acceptance among young people accompanied by the ease of web access has also led to a near epidemic of young girls posting provocative pictures online. Uploading provocative photos online not only increases the chances of incurring sexually inappropriate comments and behavior, but also invites criticism and malicious behavior from peers and classmates. There has been a recent emergence of Pro-Ana websites. These sites often glorify thinness and classify anorexia and bulimia as a lifestyle, not a disease. Many pro-ana websites cater to young women who aspire to become anorexic; they offer tips for suppressing appetite, ways to hide the disorder, and even advice on how to purge more effectively.
