When will the media stop telling us how we should look like?

I’m not a Miley Cyrus fan, but I sympathize with what she is experiencing at the moment. Some mentally distorted people keep calling her “fat.”
Miley Cyrus retaliated on her Twitter account by posting a picture of an emaciated women and said,
“By calling girls like me fat this is what you’re doing to other people. I love MYSELF & if you could say the same you wouldn’t be sitting on your computer trying to hurt others.”
Does she look fat to you? I hope you said no. The media carries the Herculean task in forming our views in everything from politics to the human body. They already damaged people’s perception on how the body should look like anyway. What happened to the Marilyn Monroe body? Why do women now aspire to look like Kate Moss and a young version of Twiggy?
The father of PR, Edward Bernays, states, “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”
Eating disorders among the pre-adolescent population continues to rise with children as young as six becoming victims. Is the media to blame? Children mimic and like imitating their favourite stars and heroes. Don’t believe me? Take your daughter to see any Disney movie, for example Hannah Montana. She’ll then start acting like her favourite character and demand you buy her everything Hannah. Do you know how many young girls want to be like her? Do you know how many girls want to be singers now?
I commend Miley and her best friend Demi Lovato for hitting back at those belittling and bullying comments. I hope Miley’s legions of fans and others follow suit and stop worrying about their body 24/7. Eating healthy will automatically give you a slender appearance without the harmful side effects of an eating disorder.
Miley Cyrus IS NOT fat. Below is a picture of someone who needs to hit the gym and lay off of junk food. Calling Miley fat is unbelievably idiotic. Men want women with curves, but please don’t say this woman below is “curvy.”
I wrote this article back in 2011, and it’s still one of my popular articles to this day. A lot has happened in Miley’s life since then. She’s totally reinvented herself – who can forget her 2013 MTV Music Awards performance alongside Robin Thicke?
She’s now thinner than ever – and more comfortable
in her own skin. She literally killed Hannah Montana that night using a powerful combination of sexuality and marijuana. She successfully destroyed her clean-cut Disney image.
So, did those nasty comments in 2011 trigger her to lose weight? I’m almost certain that the body shaming Miley received negatively affected her – ultimately causing her to shed the weight. Because let’s face it, she’s a completely new person – physically and personality-wise if you ask me. When will people stop caring what others think of them? Social media can be a dangerous thing… Cyber bullying can ruin someone’s perception of what is beautiful and force them to become someone they aren’t.
