Even as an anonymous, regular girl, I can tell you that “beauty standards” are a tiring thing, wrecking women’s mental health since… I don’t know, probably forever. But if you’re a model or a celebrity, I can only imagine how bad it can get.
A model named Liz, a.k.a. Thewizardliz, recently witnessed just how toxic “beauty standards” are. During a photo shoot, a photographer told her to stop eating so she could lose weight until the next shoot. She reacted fiercely and emotionally, standing up for herself and women in general. Her friend caught it on camera, and it turned into a video that quickly went viral and gained a flood of comments.
