We all know what Pinterest is, the site women go crazy over because they can sit at their computer and look at pretty things over and over and over. Now I am not hating on Pinterest I am also on the wagon; I have made a magical wardrobe online, it is like a reference point for when I go shopping. There is also really cute pictures of animals and I luffs myself a tute animal photo.
Why is Pinterest evil?
Because of the “motivational” photos all over it. Some of them are very positive but I find a lot of photos that girls will just sit there and look at and wish they could be that. Some of the photos allude to thinspiration; which is something that people with eating disorders obsess over. Trying to be that skinny, or that fit, or that small. Also staring at “hot” people on a computer screen won’t get you in shape; I find it easy to waste time on Pinterest and that could be valuable time for some people to work out. I use to be super addicted and now I just “Pin” if I am bored or have free time, like my day off from running. Also under many of the picture girls pin they write “one day”. It is the purest form of media influencing people to hate themselves.
Many of these girls are fitness models, who live and train to be shredded and super fit. The everyday person is not going to look like that from working out a little bit. It is also important to find targets that your body can actually meet because everyone is not born super tall and thin. Below are two of my favorite “fitness” pins.
Now for some more positive words about Pinterest; you can find fancy outfits, funny things, and cute pets; here are some of my favorite pins.
That is all for now, time to be productive and all that stuff adults do.
