Today's episode we discuss an article about an IG post from celebrity Bethany Frankel, the danger of filters and altering photos online, "Filtering is lying: It is deceptive. It makes women feel badly about themselves. It makes young girls insecure and obsessed with unattainable perfection. It makes middle-aged women and mothers feel insecure about themselves,". The discussion dives into the reality of social media today and how it affects us personally and our thoughts on the way it is affecting women all over the world. Frankel took bold action and used her platform to draw attention to something that need to be discussed more often.
As if it's not enough pressure every day for us as women, mothers, wives, daughters, employees, and friends, we have the added pressure from daily social media images of friends, influencers, and celebrities alike, many of whom curate the perfect image of themselves and their "lives" with editing and filters to make us all feel like shit about ourselves and our reality.
The issue is we can logically process and discuss that most people are filtered but it's become such common practice that when it's in front of us we cannot remind ourselves that it's a filtered image and that's where the problems begin. Our insecurity takes hold, and the false ideals we create of what we should look like are flat-out false and deceptive.
