As I am standing with my mother in the line at the supermarket checkout, I flick my eyes over the magazines. Most of them cause eye-rolls. But the other day, Ok! magazine caused a stare, and a vaguely worried mind-set for the rest of the day.
The main headline, coupled with a photo of a very thin Angelina Jolie: ‘apparently happier than ever, why is Angelina risking her health to stay thin?’
A little headline up the top: ‘(famous celebrity who has had a baby)’s post baby body!
Yeah. I wonder too.
It would be really nice for the media to send a message to people about being beautiful no matter what your weight was. And not just one article called ‘love your body’ that involves loving your body unless it is over size 14. Shouldn’t the magazines want to make you feel good so you buy it again?
Couldn’t the media just be a little more accepting?
