Existe uma infinidade de contas não tão famosas assim no Instagram que são incríveis e extremamente inspiradoras. Além disso, muitos desses perfis pregam justamente contra o ideal de fotos perfeitas das redes sociais. A canadense Kenzie Brenna usa a internet para mostrar que nem sempre aquelas fotos ~naturais~ estão tão naturais assim.

Funciona mais ou menos como quando você faz uma maquiagem leve para que as pessoas tenham a impressão de que você não está maquiada – mas, na verdade, passou alguns minutinhos ressaltando a beleza natural em frente ao espelho. No Insta, Kenzie coloca uma foto natural, sem nenhum tipo de edição, ao lado dessa mesma imagem após submetê-la a um tratamento. Veja, por exemplo, a montagem abaixo:

👏 MEDIA 👏 LITERACY 👏 NEEDS 👏 TO 👏 HAPPEN 👏 We need disclaimers on photoshopped images. We need companies and brands to at the very least say SOMETHING about the overuse of retouching, making any type of statement to then give impressionable girls THE RIGHT IMPRESSION that no body looks the way they fucking do in advertisements. I did a lil project with my friends @untitledandco, here in Toronto, specifically in regards to body image and photoshopping. 💁 | 💁 Here are some statistics to think about; 〰 80% of women say that the images of women in tv, movies, fashion magazines and advertising makes them feel insecure 〰 7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way including their looks, performance in school and relationships 〰 In 2013 the American Medical Association created a policy that really didn't go anywhere, stating that the effects of digitally altering images to impressionable youth were so harmful they cause HEALTH PROBLEMS. YES. HEALTH. PROBLEMS. I feel like this is a no brainer. Fine, you don't want to stop photoshopping? You don't want body diversity? You don't want raw, unedited images of a girl existing without cutting her body away? I'll take some fucking print at the bottom of your ad then that blatantly says what I'm seeing is NOT real. (Or not 100% real.) I'm REALLY stoked that my friends tho @untitledandco we're without question totally for this idea. When I mentioned it to Cam, he immediately without question went and put a statement on their Instagram 💜🦄 🎥 Link in my boo to the wholeeeee vlog of it where we take you step by step in the Photoshop process and the photo shoot itself. Discussing everything mentioned AND Cam's veryyyyy interesting open perspective on it!!! Trust me when I say it's a must watch. Create conversations on this. 🗣🗣🗣 Talk to your younger community about the PROCESSED images they see and how they are NOT whole bodies that may appear in the mirror. Help young girls stay away from disorders. That's all. #medialiteracy #bodyimage #bodyimageissues #labelphotoshop #justfuckingdoit

Para a canadense, o mais preocupante nessa história de reproduzir um ideal de beleza (muitas vezes irreal) é o fato de isso causar problemas de saúde, tanto física quanto mental, em muitas pessoas, principalmente naquelas que não se enxergam no que estão vendo. “Nós temos que chamar a atenção das companhias e marcas sobre esse exagero na hora de retocar imagens“, alerta a ativista.

Now see! That wasn't very hard! For those of you who don't know, here are the following statistics; 42% of girls in grade 1-3 want to be thinner 💔 78 fucking % of 17 year old girls are unhappy with their bodies 💔 "Teenage girls are more afraid of gaining weight then getting, cancer, losing their parents or nuclear war." 😖😖😖 In 2013 the American Medical Association created a policy that really didn't go anywhere, stating that the effects of digitally altering images to impressionable youth were so harmful they cause HEALTH PROBLEMS. HEALTH. PROBLEMS. One more time for those in the back of twitter who subtweet me; HEALTH. PROBLEMS. 🚭🚭🚭 For all you concerned about "health" couldn't this be something you jump on board for?? 🗣👀 If magazines had disclaimers on bodies, it would start looking pretty silly flipping through 99% of the pages with a warning on it. I personally think it needs to happen. PARENTS AND SCHOOLS should and need to be teaching their kids that the bodies they see in the media may not look like theirs. Explaining that one is "whole" body and one is a "processed" body. Similar to what an organic whole food is to processed food. I don't get why this is so difficult to accept or why people battle it. 🤦‍♀️Okay so you want don't want body diversity in advertisements? Then I'll have disclaimers on every image they alter. 💯 And for those of you who HAVENT heard, cellulite is 🚫 NOT 🚫 an indication of health, wellness or quality of life. 🤷‍♀️💃 It is the appearance of fat cells. It is a cosmetic issue in OUR culture and it happens to be on 90% of women. 💆🙋🙆 YOURE COOL. STAY BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING. 🌸💕 #cellulitesaturday #selflovebootcamp #beyourownkindofbeautiful

Eu sei que filtros e o Facetune podem ser divertidos, porque você sai do zero e se tornar uma super-heroína em poucos segundos, mas eu prefiro a realidade“, afirma a instagrammer, que adora fazer comparações entre a beleza real de cada pessoa e os padrões que são impostos pela sociedade.

Hallooooo it's no facetune/no filters Friday! #NFF I didn't go too crazy this time, buuuuut. My skin looks like skin on the left but on the right I look a type of flawless that doesn't really exist in everyday life. I know filters and facetune can be fun because you think of yourself going from a zero to hero in a matter of seconds. But I prefer realness over a type of perfection that I constantly have to chase. (I even got rid of the lines on my neck 🙄) YOU ROCK. BE YOURSELF. (At least in some moments if you can't all the time.) Slay in the skin you're in! #selflove #facetunecansuckit 😛

Há muita discussão sobre o quão problemáticos podem ser os aplicativos de edição de imagem. Eles, em si, não são perigosos. É muito divertido saber que você pode postar nas redes sociais uma foto em que se encontra na melhor versão de si mesma, apenas ressaltando o que já é belo. Contudo, muitas pessoas acabam perdendo a mão e alterando traços faciais e partes do corpo. Quando elas vão ver, já nem se reconhecem mais – e isso causa danos psicológicos gravíssimos! “Eu consumia imagens irreais em revistas desde que tinha dez anos. Você acha que eu sabia que elas não eram verdadeiras?“, questiona Kenzie.
