What do you think is important in life...how a person looks or what they are like inside? It makes me so mad that so many commercials and television shows portray people as thin and with perfect skin. It's so unrealistic. I am not either of those things, yet my husband thinks I am beautiful. So there are two things. 1. It is a matter of personal taste and 2. It's extremely unhealthy for people to work to be things they are not. Look at all the people with eating disorders. I was recently surprised to learn that a friend of my son's has anorexia...and it's a boy. Eating disorders like anorexia and bulemia don't affect only women! People want to see themselves as what they think other people find attractive. They are given many false perceptions by the media. Everyone's taste is different. There is someone for everyone. I really believe that, and it means we shouldn't all try to fit just one image.

i too feel it is what is inside, society and the media do put pressure on you to be thin and gorgeous, but if we were all the same the world would be a dull place.
