This video was pretty upsetting. The media loves to downplay the effect that the fads they push have on people but it would appear that the problem has gotten quite serious. Image issues are literally stealing opportunities away from us and this is unacceptable.
I could never understand why society in general persists in judging people based on appearance. Appearance used to be a source of annoyance for me as well. It not something I have to deal with often though since I’m more or less stuck in my home. That being said, I do remember how people treated me so I understand what these boys and girls are going through.
I’d like to think that someday we as a society will rise above these superficial judgements.
