Dove commissioned a study on how advertisements influenced girls ages 10-14. 77% of girls did describe themselves in negative terms when comparing themselves to beauty advertisements. The internet headline writers decided to distort that into “77% of girls think they are ugly.” That is not the same thing.

“Alright, Frogman. Here is a picture of Ryan Gosling’s abs. How do you think your abs compare.”

“I’m not entirely sure I have abs, to be honest.”

“I’m just going to say that you think you’re ugly.”

“Wait, what?”

This is why I don’t trust hipster hand statistics.
