My answer: For every one commercial with a male model, I see about five with a female flipping her hair around and being cute and sexual. Women seem to have to deal with all this pressure at the same time not expressing any negative feelings towards it at all.

Media is there to apply pressure on you.
You are supposed to be brainwashed into believing that your body ISN'T GOOD, and that you need all kinds of cosmetics to make it look "acceptable", and that you will never be perfect, but WILL get closer and closer to perfect if you buy so and so products.
That is how many businesses make money.
And they SUCCEED, for humanity's sake!
You can not believe the questions I see here daily...
"Is having a few pimples really a huge turn off?"
"What if I have stretch marks? Is that a deal-breaker?"
"How can I accept that I have a small penis and live my life?"
"My breasts aren't big, but I still have a nice ass. Do I at least have a chance?"
"Even though I try VERY hard, I am not completely smooth 'down there'. Is that a turnoff?"
I feel very depressed, just reading these questions and seeing that people don't realize that they are far more beautiful than they think. They just focus on one specific aspect of their entire body, and think that, since it is not perfect, they are ugly and they must be hated.
It is just depressing. I am not even exaggerating. These questions are REAL.
So, yeah, there's your answer.
