WELCOME TO CLASS...

***No Airbrushing Allowed***

TODAY (July 11th, 2012), at 11:00 AM (ET), thousands of young, teenage girls took a stand against mainstream, print publications utilizing 'airbrushing' techniques within the pages (and on the cover) of teen-targeted magazines, as an effort to promote healthier and more realistic images of girls in the media.

The movement, spearheaded by the advocacy group, SPARK (sexualization protest, action, resistance, knowledge; a virtual 'task force on the sexualization of girls'), has previously won-over Seventeen magazine to change some of its photo-editing tactics, and has since called out another, magazine giant, Teen Vogue, to step up to the plate...

In response to the media uproar, SPARK correspondent, Emma Stydahar says, "...real girls are really beautiful WITHOUT being digitally altered. And not only are you sending that message to the teen magazines, your sending it to the young women who read these publications, who have been programmed to believe that because their bodies don’t measure up to the photoshopped models in these magazines that they are not beautiful enough, not thin enough, not good enough."
