The young voices have been silent too long and that has taken a toll on our bodies, we need change in the media industry. No longer is "healthy" considered beautiful, instead it's who's the most muscular or thin.
The number of teens with eating disorders and suicidal thoughts or action are rapidly rising because of depression that comes from not being "perfect."
We, the undersigned, call on all major media outlets to not just have one unattainable ideal body image, especially if it causes us to do dangerous and unhealthy things to even try to attain it.
By signing this pledge we agree that all bodies can be perfect just the way they are.
