Body image became important to me when i was in 7th grade because that’s when i started hanging out with the eighth graders and that’s when the girls started flowing in from left and right so i had to prepare my image as good one so i could keep being successful in doing that. I don’t feel any pressure from society to dress masculine but i think because of the way the society dresses i dress different and because im a athlete i tend to dress bummy most of the time unless im going out to an event. I think If they would of created different types of ads before, yes it would have improved self esteem but because there’s all different types of ads out there that most likely bring peoples self esteem down i don’t think by making one now would change it. I do think the media has an effect on how they’ve made people feel and act but i personally believe if you let the media or anyone get to you your going to have a hard time in life because its all in your head how you feel about the quote my famous saying “Sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt” should be everyone’s mentality so unless someone physically attacks how you feel you should always feel good about your self.
Its all about what you think of yourself!
