Running head: BODY IMAGE AND THE MEDIA Body Image and the Media Name Institution 1 BODY IMAGE AND THE MEDIA 2 Body Image and the Media The increasing rate of exposure to media images is influencing the judgment of people about their body. It is the kind of information that is making people consider their bodies as substandard. Some of the questions that drive discussions on body image recently include what the ideal body structure is? Does the color of my skin matter and what are the solutions for having a perfect body? Therefore, people who use media images as a comparison for their body are discontented with them, support the cultural ideology that physical appearance is vital for social acceptance and prone to self-esteem problems. People who are discontented with their body develop this perspective because of the role of the media in the promotion of the ideal body structure and beauty. One of the ways that this ideology is encouraged by the media is through the use of beautiful models and individuals who meet the standards of the ideal body image in television advertisement. According to the outcome of a study that was conducted by Spurr, Berry, and Walker (2013), a significant percentage of young girls and young women have one complain about a part of their body and would be willing to change this abnormality to meet the standard of the actors and models that they see on television and magazines. They added that the discontentment with the body structure is responsible for the high volume of body improvement products such as hair and cosmetics. Therefore, the adverse effect of media on body image is due to the emphasis of advertisers and organizations to use individuals with the physical appearance that are considered as the minimum standard for certain parts of the body. BODY IMAGE AND THE MEDIA 3 Meanwhile, the influence of the media in the projection of the ideal body image can be observed from the cultural perspective of young people that typical beauty standards and physical attributes set by television programs and magazine photos is required for social acceptance. Many young girls are raised with the belief that beauty and attractiveness are derived from the ideal body image, which is critical for becoming popular within their social groups. Also, this perspective about body image that is derived from the media is considered as the major requirement for success in some endeavors. Stephen and Perera (2014) claimed that adolescence is the period in the life of females that is filled with the dream of the future including career, relationships, and happiness thereby making them vulnerable to the images that displayed in the media about body weight, size, and shape. Consequently, this demographic become fixated on this cultural ideology to the point where it can be detrimental to their health and wellbeing, especially when several parts of their body are considered "not ideal." Furthermore, the influence of the media on the development of ideas about body image is considered negative due to its role in the creation of self-esteem problems. People with body image disturbances from the information that is derived from the media are known to lose confidence in their capabilities and potential to accomplish their goals (Mulgrew & VolcevskiKostas, 2012). An example is the efforts that are invested in beauty routines and cost for purchasing products for flawless skin color. Although studies reveal that women are more prone to the self-esteem problems that emanate images from television and magazines, males are become more concerned about their physical appearance and attractiveness, primarily when the professional aspiration is based on how they look. An additional dimension of the problem is that low self-esteem is considered as one of the sources of mental health disorders including anxiety and depressive mood disorders. Therefore, it is essential to consider measures for limiting the BODY IMAGE AND THE MEDIA 4 capacity of the media to distribute information about ideal images that are unrealistic or not based on other criteria for beauty and physical attractiveness. In conclusion, despite the argument that the images in the media have negative effects on the self-esteem of people and create discontentment in them, this information is more beneficial than recognized. The images of models and actors on television and in magazines are known to contribute to the development of healthy attitudes in people with weight problems that could lead to chronic health conditions. Also, the body images that are projected by media channels are considered as motivation for people to engage in cultural practices that promote social acceptance. Although these counterarguments might appear tenable, the issue with them is that fail to recognize the methods for internalizing the messages and percentage of young people that are adversely affected by the information on body image.

Where are your crucial questions? Where is the quote or statistics to open your paper and create the need for public intervention? 1. Assignment 2: Position Paper Two – Media and Society This is the second of two (2) position papers based on the following scenario to be completed in this course. Again, imagine that you are running for a state office (e.g., governor, senator, or Congressional representative) and you have to prepare a position paper for a debate on controversial issues in the news. [Select one (1) of the topics addressed in Weeks 5-9 of this class.] Remember that you are addressing a significant segment of your state’s population and you want to be elected to public office, so your topic will have to have a broad appeal, such as public trust and the media, the loss of privacy, safeguarding the First Amendment, online harassment, and the dangers of privatizing public information, among other topics from those chapters. You will want your position paper to demonstrate critical thinking, sound logic, valid claims, personal passion, and credible support that is cited correctly because the paper will be provided to the news media before the debate and will be scrutinized by the media and reported on regarding these criteria. Write a two to three (2-3) page (500 to 750 words) paper in which you: 1. Introduce your position using a thesis statement in the first paragraph, including a quote, question, or statistic from your reliable sources and an overview of the main points you will cover. (It’s important to grab the audience’s interest and inform the audience of what the main and support points are.) 2. Provide two or three (2-3) major points to support your thesis statement. (Put each major point in a separate paragraph.) 3. Provide one (1) paragraph in which you identify and answer an expected argument against your view. 4. Organize arguments and support your claims effectively. 5. Demonstrate personal passion for your position and critical thinking with persuasive language, sound logic, valid claims, and credible support for the claims. 6. Use the Strayer University Library at https://research.strayer.edu to locate and provide two to three (2-3) credible and reliable sources (in addition to the textbook) about current events, which have been published in the last five (5) years and are cited correctly in the position paper. (Wikipedia, dictionaries, and encyclopedias are unacceptable and will not count toward your number of credible sources.) Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements: • Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow Strayer Writing Standards. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. • • • The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are: Apply critical thinking skills to the analysis of issues involving mass media and society.
