TheeKatsMeoww a Youtuber and blogger wants more people to start embracing their unique beauty and body types decided to take to the streets wearing nothing but sunglasses and made a video to address the issue of body image. Checkout the video below.
Below is Kats statement:
I don’t believe I’ve ever had a “problem” with my weight. But I can say that there hasn’t been a day where I’m not consciously fighting against the voices in my head from the pressures of society’s beauty standards. Its exhausting to constantly reject the lies that the media and sometimes even your own family feeds you.
According to statistics released by the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders almost 70% of girls in 5th to 12th grades say that magazine images affect their idea of a “perfect” body type. Teens who perceive themselves at the extreme ends of a weight spectrum are more likely to consider or even attempt suicide, according to a report released in an issue of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
