Joneka, a teen girl of color, had to go 78 pages into her copy of Teen Vogue to find a girl who looks like her.
Her message to the magazine: #keepitreal
I absolutely hate TeenVogue. For this reason, and for reasons that they pretty much promote fat hate and anorexia. They published where a teenage guy supposedly said “I think it’s sexy to see bones.” Um I’m sorry… that shit is dangerous.
But this definitely adds to why I refuse to have anything to do with this magazine. They should put pictures of ALL girls, to represent the fact that all girls look different. And it doesn’t matter what race you are, or what size you are. All girls are beautiful.
