I wouldn't say media is to blame, but it is part of the problem.

Another reason why I think low BFC is such a crappy goal.
Of course we all want to be liked. But a decision to loose fat for example, should not be based on whether or not the skinny clique at school will like you afterwards. Just saying that people need to make decisions for themselves and not because of what others think.

Media is a problem for the week-minded. There's so much c*** on tv these days that it's just so easy to blame it on this alone (not saying you do )

I am very week-minded when it comes to shoe adds. I DO blame the media for literally FORCING me to go out and buy a new pair every time I see one
Totally nucking futs since '83
