The media is creating an ideal body image for teens, boys and girls, that are not realistic. This is causing teens to have negative self-esteem. Negative self-esteem is leading to the harmful effects of eating disorders, suicide, etc.

      I think something big needs to be done about how media can portray body image as what they think is perfect. I am a teenager and I know how hard it is to grow up surrounded by 'perfection' in the media and its hard, it destroys our childhood, and makes us prioritise body image above all else. Society kills the teenager.

      I have an eating disorder, and the media makes it difficult to try to recover.

      I think that too many girls have terrible body images of themselves and the media adds to their stress.
