St. Louis (KSDK) – What if magazine ads and swimsuit photo shoots had to come with the words, “Photoshopped” on them? Do you think it would help improve the way teens and adolescents dealt with body image issues? A lawmaker in Arizona does. She has introduced a bill that would require just that, the goal, to bring awareness to body issues and help young women, and men have healthier self images.
If this bill passes, any image that is Photoshopped or airbrushed would have to have a disclaimer at the bottom that would say “postproduction techniques were made to alter the appearance in this advertisement. When using this product, similar results may not be achieved.”
