A new film from an anti-bullying charity demonstrates that what some of us may consider to be our weaknesses are seen as sexy by others
Some of its previous work has addressed issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people.
Its latest campaign addresses issues of body confidence. They asked several different people to strip down to their underwear and pose for a candid photo.
They then invited others to come and looks at the photos and point out the ones they find attractive and explain why.
The result? That everyone has slightly different taste, and just because you might be self-critical of the way you look, there’s others out there who think your body is beautiful just the way it is.
Or as Ditch the Label state it; ‘You don’t have to be a skinny size-8 girl or a muscular built guy in order to be attractive.’
That might seem like an obvious observation, but it’s one that still needs to heard: Ditch the Label’s own research has found that around 50% of young people have expressed a desire to change their appearance – with kids as young as 13% talking of an interest in cosmetic surgery.
