Every girl desires to be beautiful…

The APA, Women’s Programs Office, published the following report:

Virtually every media form studied provides ample evidence of the sexualization of women, including television, music videos, music lyrics, movies, magazines, sports media, video games, the Internet, and advertising.In study after study, findings have indicated that women more often than men are portrayed in a sexual manner. In addition, a narrow and unrealistic standard of physical beauty is heavily emphasized. These are the models of femininity presented for young girls to study and emulate.

Need I say more? It starts somewhere….and then we’re appalled to find that these atrocities are taking place in our world.
