What are we saying to our young people? Are we telling them that they are not good enough and that it is a good idea to carve themselves up in order to gain social acceptance? While there are also all kinds of messages out there that it’s ok to be yourself and all bodies are beautiful... Is this not completely conflicting messaging? Are we not causing all kinds of confusion in the still developing and fragile minds of our youth? What does it mean when monstrous distortions of reality are accepted as the norm and promoted by the media?
