Do you think Instagram and Tumblr are harmful?

I think they are! Most girls are photoshopped on there and it creates unrealistic expectations that aren't even real! Guys think girls look the way they do on a picture, but they actually don't because they've been photoshopped and are wearing a shit ton of makeup! And girls see other girls looking perfect and it kills their self esteem! let me know what you guys think 😊

  • I think Instagram has a very negative community for women. They're okay with teen girls showing off how much they cut but ban women for showing a pair of bloody pants. They're okay with nearly naked teenagers but hate women breastfeeding. The dichotomy and sexualization on that website is unreal and exceedingly toxic.

    I don't like tumblr for teenagers because the environment is very... not good. There's a lot of social pressure put on people but instead of using that pressure for good a lot of them tend to use it as a way to give really *really* bad advice and treat people poorly. Like there's a real constructive way to do things and then there's the tumblr way to do things. It's not a good idea to be on there until you know the difference.

  • Yes, that is true. I mean some of the younger guys might not know how photo shopped some of those women are, but after meeting a few Catfish, they will learn quickly, as I did.

  • It's only harmful to those stupid people who believe all they see. If they think a woman full of makeup and filters is what a real woman should look like, then it's their problem.

  • I agree. Its like flipping through a catalogue earmarking what you want to get only to find it's not nearly half as good in person as they made it out to be.

What Girls Said 3

  • I love tumblr but I have used instagram and it did make me depressed but that was mostly because of the way people treated me for my appearance and having a low amount of followees (20 on my old one I have 3 on my new) had to make a new one because of embarrassing drama, teens and young adults can be cruel.
