They own the mass imagery. They have a lock on what you see, until and unless you are willing to cast your eyes farther. And you can talk and write about body image until you’re blue in the face, but if you aren’t showing images, you aren’t doing squat. If you aren’t presenting alternatives to what people see every day, they might hear what you say, but they’ll walk away thinking about that girl on the front page of Seventeen with the photoshopped concavity under her tiny breasts, or that guy on the cover of International Male who looks like he was carved out of hard soap with a fine knife.

Well, damn.
