😭😭😭😍😍😍😍😍 my tshirt finally came!
The media, using unrealistic images of children [see: using 16-25 year old actors to portray young children or teens] and highly sexualized child models, successfully brainwashes children into thinking they should look a certain way, or be sexually desirable at increasingly younger ages.
Children [especially young girls] as young as 6 years old are struggling with negative feelings toward their body image.
A while ago, my baby sister [who was 5-7 at the time] came to me, upset, asking if she had an “hourglass figure”. My other baby sister [10-12] worries if she is thin enough to be desirable.
NO child should be made to worry about those things. Small children are often shaped like lima beans, with fat little tummies, and that’s A-ok.
Kids need to be protected from the negative images and ideals pushed by the media.
So, I started #PROTECTTHELIMABEANS. Protect and support realistic childrens’ body images!!
