Response to There’s A YouTube Trend Among Teenage Girls Called “Pretty Or Ugly,” And It’s Hugely Troubling:
No one asks to be bullied. If you think that is the case, you really need to reread the article. With the pressure to be skinny and pretty ( aka “perfect”) in our society, how could these girls not want to be reassured that they are beautiful? Imagine they were your sister, perhaps even a daughter. Would you want a creep on the internet to say that they are desperate for attention? This is a new generation with a large variety of social media at their fingers, much more than we had in during middle school. Instead of questioning the struggling youth, maybe we should question the influences breaking them down.
