  • Young girls are just as susceptible to feelings of inadequacy as the rest of the world, finds a study.

    At as tender an age as 10, young girls report feeling depressed and even considering plastic surgery as a result of the media attention focusing on the looking as perfect as celebrities.

    The girls feel pressure from marketing directed at young girls that says they should look and dress a certain way, including wearing make-up, sexy clothes and even lose weight and have plastic surgery to achieve celebrity status.

    The findings, which were published in Girlguilding UK, paint a rather bleak view that a new generation of girls is growing up obsessed with looks and possessions.

      I am 25 and I know that I felt “fat” by the age of 8 or 9 and went on my first diet and exercise program at 10. I was a little bit chubby but not obese. Around the same time I believe I wanted a nose job and by age 12 or 13 I was making lists of the surgeries I “needed”- rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast implants, and lip injections. I also remember thinking I needed fake nails and a tan at age 10 or 11. I was a typical quiet preteen, I wasn’t wild or sexually active or doing drugs.

      Body dysmorphia can effect children too. In my case I think it was a combination of the media and negative feedback about my weight and looks from an abusive mother (who ironically, wasn’t into plastic surgery or excessive amounts of makeup/fashion).

      Maybe certain commenters should think twice about calling these girls “fuckwits”. It is a sad reality that anyone, especially children, can have such a distorted view of their physical being.
