Ever look at a picture of a model and think, "Man, those lips can't be real. That skin can't be that smooth."Of course you have... That's because they aren't... And it can't...Sure looks good, though.... That's because literally every commercial image published today goes through some level of Photo shop manipulation... Sometimes it's just a light tweaking of colors, but far more often it's a whole digital thing from top to bottom...We got some people now who's worrying that photo shop abuse is causing problems for some teens...Especially those who are susceptible to developing unhealthy body image obsessions....Their goal is to help women with eating disorders and self-esteem issues....The solution to the problem is to place warning labels on photo shopped images....The warning will read: "Photograph retouched to modify the physical appearance of a person." The members of Parliament are discussing this law being a requirement for any sort of media with a digitally manipulated person....What do you think? Would this be helpful? Should it become a law, and should the whole world consider this?...I think as parents we need to keep pounding in our children head that the day they were born God smiled...He didn't need to create them , He chose to....When they fully grasp that they want have the problem of feeling "less-than."
