Hey, just an interesting topic and not trying to be shallow or narcisisstic by saying this.

But do you sometimes feel as a woman a bit inadequate to the models we see online. I know they've probably been edited a lot. But especially when someone quite close to you likes pictures that are slightly provocative, it slightly annoys me.

I get that at the end o the day, it's just a body and people are allowed to like what they want but sometimes it just gets to me a bit.

Be interesting to see other people's ideas on this topic.

Thanks Emma

It’s the way we’re being conditioned, make people feel inadequate, sell product depicting users quality of life improving, cash in
