YouTube Friday: SI Swimsuit Edition

What is true beauty.

I have worked with young people for many years and one of the the things that drives me crazy is how so often we allow beauty to be defined for us and to us by the media.

I am not a media hater by any means. I think media is powerful, but as we learned from uncle Ben “With great power comes great responsiblity.” I think that many media outlets are not using their power responsibly.

Magazines paint (literally and figuratively) images in the minds of girls of what they can never obtain outside of photoshop and boys an image of perfection that is not based in reality.

I will keep my comments to a pointed minimum since it is youtube friday but check out these links to read more.
