A Depraved Sense Of Beauty
By: Pratyush Sahu
A notorious filmmaker formerly said the media is responsible for immortalizing the idea of what’s “normal” and that if you don’t see yourself on television, in an announcement at the machine sanctum or on the runners of a magazine you flutter through, it becomes clear that yours isn’t the kind of beauty being “celebrated”.
Being members of this current ultramodern world, we’re all apprehensive that the media is given the position of an essential necessity. In the positive aspect, it provides entertainment and information to the observers and for the possessors, it brings in constant gains. But negatively, it also affects the regard of an existent.
To my way of thinking, media networks may be compared to unnoticeable or virtual part models that mandate marred fashion and moral norms. The media tends to constantly support the notion that what makes an individual worthwhile is grounded on the information they admit on TV or other platforms. People absorb the diurnal communication that their happiness and success in life depend generally on the norms set by the media.
We fail to realize that the conception of beauty is more or less cerebral in nature, and numerous marketing agencies use these proven social psychology tools in dwindling the tone-regard of the individual by constantly exposing them to an ideal standard that they cannot meet, driving them to ‘compensate’ by copping beauty products to try and meet this ideal.
While some may say that this is an excellent tactic for icing a constant inflow of gains, at the same time these agencies produce a cerebral need by manipulating consumer perception of what it takes to be accepted, liked, and admired, which laterally affects the internal state of the existence.
After having done enough exploration, these marketing agencies decide to increase the ideals in ornamental marketing announcements with the intention of adding tone-knowledge and thereby taking it to a further extent.
This virtual part model has no control over the quantum of information that flows into it and hence youthful people are frequently exposed to distorted norms of beauty.
Social media networks control what’s popular by participating in or reposting celebrities’ images. Having a post by notorious celebrity influences the individual indeed subconsciously. youthful people also make trouble to mimic their icons, by eating less or more and copying indecorous and unhealthy cultures.
This evaluation of mine may be rebuked by putting forward the fact that major media platforms work within ethical morals and their effective system ensures that similar prejudiced ideals aren’t made public.
And to that, I would say, how far are we with this effective perpetration of ethical morals? I find it absolutely delicate to believe that teenagers out there aren’t at each told by what they see on the screen.
This being said, the fact that the changing world is making trouble to tear down the limits of what defines beauty cannot be left unacknowledged. It’s indeed true that we’ve started vocalizing our studies but collaborative sweats are demanded to speed up this process to fabricate a world where all body structures are normalized and where no ideal beauty exists.
We need to internalize the fact that the idea of beauty is always shifting. moment, it’s more inclusive than ever. Whom we suppose beautiful is grounded on our own values and is a reflection of what we’ve been tutored and what we grew up around.
Hence, we can arrive at a conclusion that the media tends to portray incorrect shoes of beauty compelling the observers to bear in a pre-set manner. While the media with the help of online elevations is veritably important, this power has to be kept in check to ensure that no prejudiced opinions are publicized.
