Dove commissioned a study on how advertisements influenced girls ages 10-14. 77% of girls did describe themselves in negative terms when comparing themselves to beauty advertisements. Which is heart breaking and should be discussed. However, the internet headline writers decided to distort that into “77% of girls think they are ugly.” That is not the same thing.
“Alright, Frogman. Here is a picture of Ryan Gosling’s abs. How do you think your abs compare?”
“I’m not entirely sure I have abs, to be honest.”
“I’m just going to say that you think you’re ugly.”
Don’t trust hipster hand statistics.
