So this article includes a petition to the U.S. Government regarding digitally altered images of the human body. A girl is trying to get people to sign a petition that states there should be a law requiring digitally altered images of the human body to be clearly labeled. These unattainable bodies we see in the media cause people to have eating disorders and struggle with their weight. Young girls and women across the globe are constantly comparing themselves to models in magazines, bill-boards, etc. If these images were required to be labeled we would all understand that the images aren’t technically real. I believe this law should be passed because it’s important people know what real beauty is.
P.S. The video included in the article is really interesting. Give it a go if you have time! Happy midterms everyone!
