Girls and women continue to be derailed and blindsided by disempowering and belittling propaganda.

I am a young women with even younger sisters, and I see the effects (and hear it straight from my sisters' mouths) of photoshopped perfection, as wellas other influences in the media, on a daily basis. It's time for this to stop.

Advertising is unrealistic and harmful from a psychological standpoint. Labeling would not infringe on the First Amendment but allow many to realize that the ideals that they hold are digitally altered.

I know so many who suffer from eating disorders. I feel the media plays a huge role in causing women to think poorly about themselves and dreaming to be thinner.

We have a health care crisis in the US, with rising costs and rising obesity in adults and children. One way to address these problems is to cultivate healthier lifestyles and attitudes, making physical and mental wellness our goal, not sizes, shapes, pounds, or calories. For young people especially, transparency in manipulated ad images may help them have realistic expectations and set achievable wellness goals for themselves. Ultimately, this leads to positive self-image, greater self-esteem, and a better foundation for mental and physical well-being.

I, personally, feel this kind of sexist advertising was very detrimental in my life. I only want to prevent that kind of thing happening to any other young girl feeling that's the 'norm' for how women should look

I had problems with my body for so long. Until I had my daughter, I thought I was fat. Now, I have lost so much weight, 2 years later, I wish I weighed what I weighed then. Girls need to see that their body is perfect the way it is and there is no reason to change how you look.
