The Body Posi Media Movement
Back in the day people didn’t have the media to skew their view of beauty. Remember when we talked about this a couple weeks ago? The rich were larger because they could afford to eat and those with rail thin frames were deemed unworthy because they couldn’t get their hands on food. The media definitely changed that, especially after Twiggy came about in the 60’s. Gone were the full figure frames beauties like Marilyn Monroe and in were super thin models, and that idea of beauty remained the same. For me, it’s kind of always been this idea of in-shape gym rats. Weird that their standard has never really budged. Nevertheless, movies and television has since controlled what we find attractive but thankfully someone finally called bullshit and it’s started to shift in recent years.
