    I can see why a young person modeling this shirt can concern you, but I think you are over reacting to jump on this to say its Pro-Anna. I don’t agree with the choice of marketing technique, but they aren’t making blanket statements saying STARVE. I think You are being extreme here.

    I don’t agree with the way the way they presented it, but at the same time, with a marketing background, I get what they meant. For me, this message says… you aren’t always going to feel good. You are not going to roll out of bed always feeling like going to class, going to work. But despite that, you have to put your best foot forward to succeed in this world. As a business woman, I find it a bit shocking you can’t understand that. I’m not talking plastic surgery, but I think there is never any harm in wanting to look your best within safe means even when you feel shit. I in my opinion, you have blown this out of portion.

      I don`t want to be disrespectful, but no, that`s not what it says at all. To you or anyone else. It says exactly what is says — the only thing important is looking good. Not working hard, not sucking it up in order to achieve something worth achieving (like, dunno, education?), not being assertive or putting your best food forward. There is absolutely nothing in that sentence to even remotely suggest any of those things. And what is even crazier, it doesn`t even suggest that looking good is supposed to make you feel good. Feeling good (including feeling good about yourself) just doesn`t matter. So very sad.
