I hope they’re not skipping school for this fashion jewelry. How come teen boys don’t complain about this stuff? If you don’t like the images, don’t buy the magazines.

I don’t understand why teen girls take these things to heart and react so emotionally fashion jewelry.
You don’t feel bad about how you look because of these images. It’s just low self-esteem. Photoshop or lack thereof can’t fix that.
